(Dayton, OH) – The first multi-artist exhibition featured at the Edward A. Dixon Gallery begins First Friday, April 6, 2018. The African American Visual Artists Guild (AAVAG) will bring their “Wright-Dunbar Village and Wolf Creek” exhibit to the gallery for a two month run. AAVAG’s 75 member group currently has work featured across the Dayton area at the Northwest Dayton Metro Library, the Paul Laurence Dunbar House, Dayton RTA and Cultural Center and several other locations.
This current project is part of AAVAG’s Exposition Through Art program which has the purpose of paying homage to ideas, places and/or facts that have built or are building positive cultural perspectives for coming generations of African Americans. Also, the intent is to raise funds to help support budding visual artists in the Greater Dayton area through provision of materials, scholarships, and/or workspace, as well as promote new participation (professionals and amateurs) in the African American Visual Artists Guild. Each work has been inspired by the architecture, history, personalities and/or places of interest of the Wright Dunbar Village and Wolf Creek areas of west Dayton, Ohio.
AAVAG is located at 840 Germantown St. Dayton, OH 45402
