To celebrate Dayton’s Art in the City (an immersive arts experience all over downtown Dayton) we'll be hosting a special, weekend only, immersive art experience by Suzy Richardt & Briana Snyder from Verdigris Backdrops. Explore into, under, and around a river of geometric paper gems folded from recycled paper and shimmering mylar, suspended from the gallery ceiling. Unwind and relax while the shapes rustle and move along your path. Sit down and look up for a fresh point of view. Take a selfie and become a part of the art, because in Dayton, we’re all gems.
This will also be the gallery opening for local artist Maggie Reckers. Maggie started her career as a live-art "performer" that began by happenstance in 2011, and from those opportunities, Maggie has shared her art all over the country in front of thousands of people. When Maggie isn’t sharing her live paintings, she enjoys working in her quiet studio on a much smaller scale with watercolors or oil paints.
The reception is free to attend and open to the public, hosted in the upstairs gallery, where the artists will be on site to discuss their work! Light hors d'oeuvres will be served; wine and cocktails will be available for purchase! Read more about the artists and their work here.
