Join us for our one year birthday bash celebration open house!
Local artist and educator, Seth Wade, will be exhibiting ink drawings in his solo show, “From the Bellies of Birds”, opening at Dutoit Gallery on October 4th, 2019.
Employing a process that evokes the spirit of Surrealism, Seth’s drawings gradually emerge from scribbles, allowing the composition and subject of each image to present itself rather than being predetermined. This results in drawings that feature shapes, objects, and narratives that retain a sense of mystery, even to the artist himself.
Seth is currently an adjunct professor of drawing at the University of Dayton, where he received his Bachelors of Fine Arts, and also teaches painting at Stiver’s School for the Arts. “From the Bellies of Birds” will be at Dutoit through October.

David Leach, who received a B.A. from Bucknell University, and an M.F.A. from Ohio University, is an Emeritus Professor at Wright State University, where he taught art – primarily printmaking and drawing – from 1973 to 2003. His drawings and prints have been published in conjunction with poetry and prose on numerous occasions, and his work is in the collection of the Museum of Modern Art, the Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library of Yale University, the Dayton Art Institute and the Cincinnati Museum of Art, among several other public and private collections.
The recent works in this exhibition are a continuation of the work in the 2018 Dutoit show titled Flora. They remain primarily linear abstractions with a slight shift towards shape. The palate remains limited, and the process remains intuitive. As the drawings derive mostly from memory rather than direct observation, “remembrances” captures the spirit of these works.
Join us on the eve of the Kentucky Derby for an art opening celebration! This show features Lesley A.J. Baumann’s illustrations from the upcoming book J is for Justify. Inspired by the 13th Triple Crown winner and reigning Derby champion, this tale voyages through the alphabet from American Pharoah to Zenyatta. Follow along with the horses’ rhythmic strides through a world of delightful colors and patterns as well as stories of victory, courage, strength, beauty and accomplishing the impossible. The Craves food truck will also be onsite for the evening.
