Jane Reece was a founding member of the Dayton Society of Artists in 1938. Reece was a pioneer as one of the few women in then the new field of photography. She is known for her experimental photographs in the styles of Pictorialism and Photo-Secession. In the spirit of her work fifteen Miami Valley women photographers were invited to exhibit work that explores boundaries whether stylistically or through technique. The exhibition features photographs ranging from the traditional to the abstract. Including photos that explore the everyday realities of life through color rich depictions. The fifteen exhibiting artists each explore the medium of photography individually and collectively they speak to the depth of talent here in the Miami Valley.
The mission of the Dayton Society of Artists is to connect, support and educate artists and the community since 1938. The exhibition calendar includes seven exhibitions a year that are free and open to the public with opening receptions on the first Friday of the month. We aim to provide art engagement opportunities to the public and support working artists through educational opportunities.
The Jane Reece Invitational exhibition is open Fridays and Saturdays 12 to 6 PM. Free parking is available in the lot directly opposite the gallery, which is located in the historic St. Anne’s Hill District. For more information, visit www.dsadayton.org or call 937-228-4532.
