Artwork was selected for this exhibition with the intention of bringing an awareness to the diversity in culture found here in Dayton, Ohio. Through visual art, we can acknowledge, educate, and celebrate our differences. Together, we can build momentum that will propel us toward a more inclusive, and vibrant community.
This year's guest juror is local artists, instructor, and gallerist, Loretta Puncer. Puncer is an artist of realistic landscape and still life paintings. Occasionally, she ventures into the abstract world working with highly textured canvases and expressive colors. She received her BFA for the University of Dayton and maintains a studio at Front Street in Dayton, Ohio.
Puncer owned Gallery 510 Fine Art in Dayton’s Historic Oregon District where she curated and sold local and regional artists work from 2008-2018. Her goal was to showcase a broad range of artwork such as painting, sculpture, pottery and also more unusual art such as woodblock prints, anthotype photograms, quilts and handmade jewelry. Her job as a gallerist was not only to sell art but to educate patrons on the exciting processes of making art. Learn more about Loretta at lorettapuncer.com.
