The Orphanage Gallery
The Orphanage is a unique Dayton Art Gallery. Unique in that we employ a "Pop-Up" format for all Gallery Exhibits. We rotate our exhibitors in and out of the Gallery on a monthly basis. New works are always on display and Artists pay no fees of any kind to display their work.
Interested in exhibiting your work? Contact our Curator!
Our Gallery also houses builders space for tradesmen, studios for artists, and gallery space for display and sale of the items they create. Located in the campus of the iconic Front Street Buildings in Dayton's Arts District, The Orphanage is one of the area's best kept secrets!
We participate with the local Arts events like First Friday, a monthly "Art Hop" which draws people from all over the area to see nationally known and local Fine Artists to the Downtown area. The Orphanage encourages new artists to display their art! We offer the Gallery to anyone interested in a PopUp show featuring their work during these public events at no cost to the artist! During the summer months, Third Sunday is and outdoor market that takes place at our front door! Local vendors, farmers, artists and more set up shop for a family oriented fun afternoon make for another opportunity for Artists to use our Gallery space for public viewing.
If you're wondering why those names sound familiar but just cannot seem to place it. Well, I give you a hint. Art Shows! I've ran in to these two artist for many years at local art shows around the area and I mean years. What you may not known is they are both talented artist and have not shown much around here and in this special two person show we will be showing works from both of these talented artist who have supported the Dayton art scene for a very long time
