The Dayton Visual Arts Center (DVAC) presents the Annual DVAC Art Auction on April 27, 2012 at the Sinclair Community College Ponitz Center. The much anticipated auction, now in its 18th year, is the only auction in the region dedicated exclusively to visual art and is responsible for generations of Daytonians living with and making art a part of their daily lives. This year, 109 works of art by DVAC member artists in a wide range of media and prices will be presented in both silent and live auctions.
DVAC presents artworks of the highest quality by respected veteran and emerging regional artists. Artists represented in the 2012 Auction include painters Julie Beyer, MB Hopkins, Katherine Kadish and Jean Koeller; photographers Doug McLarty, Richard Malogorski, Fred Niles and Francis Schanberger; and printmakers David Leach, Ray Must and Kim Vito.
