Imagining Flight: Explorations by Dayton Artists will be on view at the Ohio Arts Council’s Riffe Gallery July 24 through October 19, 2003. The exhibition includes 39 works by 12 Dayton-area artists inspired by the concept of flight. An opening reception will be held on Thursday, July 24, from 5-7 p.m. The event is free and open to the public. Curated by Kay Koeninger, Imagining Flight celebrates the centennial of Orville and Wilbur Wright’s remarkable achievement. The legacy of Dayton’s Wright Brothers is evident in the western Ohio city even today. As a result, the artists in the exhibition take highly personal approaches to the theme of flight, employing a wide range of inspiration and media, including painting, drawing, video, photography, bookmaking, fiber art, sculpture and performance.
Featured artists include Will Davis, Diane Fitch, Anne Hubler, Katherine Kadish, Ron Kaplan, Jean Koeller, Ray Must, Yasue Sakaoka, Andy Snow, Diane Stemper, and Jud Yalkut.
