Rosewood Gallery specializes in the exhibition of contemporary art by emerging local, regional and national artists. It is dedicated to the encouragement and creation of new works and to the promotion of the visual arts in the Dayton, Ohio area. Eight solo exhibitions are presented each year in Rosewood Gallery, sponsored by the Kettering Arts Council and the City of Kettering Department of Parks, Recreation and Cultural Arts, with support from the Ohio Arts Council.
A selection committee composed of regional art professionals will make recommendations from submissions of work for exhibition. 2016 Exhibition Season jurors are Aaron Cowan, Director, DAAP Galleries; Jeffrey Cortland Jones, Associate Professor, Department of Art and Design, University of Dayton; and Jessica Barry, Owner/President, School of Advertising Art and Member, Kettering Arts Council. Notifications of the jurors’ decision will be mailed by the end of May 2015.
All media will be considered for exhibition, including video and installation pieces. Exhibition proposals must include the following:
1. A cover letter describing the proposed exhibition, any special installation requirements, and available dates.

3. Ten (10) images and a corresponding list stating titles, media, dimensions and dates. The committee will be presented with only 10 images for consideration. If the work you are submitting is for example only, please be specific in your explanation of what you propose to present in the gallery if selected. Digital submissions should be in JPEG format and must be labeled with the artist’s last name and entry number corresponding with the list provided. Example: Lastname1.jpg, Lastname2.jpg
