Ohio Art League seeks to promote our member-artists by providing you with the most up-to-date calls for entries and proposals. Artists are encouraged to submit their proposals to the City of Kettering’s Rosewood Gallery 2016 Solo Exhibition Season.

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.

Proposals for the 2016 season must be postmarked by April 30, 2015.

Check out the submission requirements and find out how to enter!

A selection committee composed of regional art professionals will make recommendations from submissions of work for exhibition. 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.

A Trip Back in Time and A One Man Art Show with Daniel Rosales

“A one-man show of an artist’s work is a severe test and often a very revealing one.”

This is the opening statement to a “Palette & Brush” column in the Columbus Art League’s newsletter circa 1930s regarding solo artist Guy Brown Wiser. Wiser’s appreciation for craftsmanship and attention to detail earned him a solo exhibition in an era not accustomed to one-man shows.

As many of you know, the Ohio Art League strives to represent and encourage our members, be it in a one-artist exhibition or that in a group. Thus, in the days of the Columbus Art League, single-artist exhibitions were not as prominent as they are now in our Member Curated Exhibitions that are hosted monthly.

OAL member artist and photographer Daniel Rosales is an example of the progression our Ohio-based organization has seen over the years. Join him in his first ever solo show, “Play With Your Food,” at MadLab Theatre downtown at the end of this month.

The Opening Reception for “Play With Your Food” takes place from 5- 7 pm at MadLab.

This show is the idea of showing food in a manner that’s reserved to people. It gives a unique take on human personality. It is for anyone who has ever enjoyed playing with their food and now they don’t have to imagine what it would look like. To see how the inanimate would live if they could. -Rosales

His spectrum of genre ranges from that of the lively inanimate food stuffs, to that of professional event and interior photography. Have a look at his Facebook page to find out more about the event or get an inside look at some of his work.
