The 6th Annual Print Portfolio Exchange 

This autumn, artists of all levels are invited to submit an edition of ten original prints in exchange for an assortment of eight different original prints by other participants plus one commemorative print made by artists at Rosewood Arts Center. Of the two remaining prints one will become part of Rosewood’s permanent collection and one will be used in an exhibition and fundraising sale to benefit Rosewood programs.

ELIGIBILITY: Open to all artists working in print medium in the region (Ohio, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Kentucky, and Indiana).

DUE DATE: TBD. Entries post-marked by the due date will be accepted.

PRINT DIMENSIONS: Paper dimension must be 5 x 7 inches. Prints not sized at 5 x 7 inches will not be eligible for the exchange.

PRINT MEDIA: Any archival print process is acceptable.

EDITION SIZE: Ten identical prints, each one signed, dated, and numbered 1/10 – 10/10. Titles are optional. Please feel free to include contact information on the reverse side of your prints such as your website. Interleave all prints with recycled paper, tissue paper, or glassine prior to shipping. Be careful when adding information on the back of the print that it does not bleed through to the front image.

ENTRY FEE: $15 for non-students and $10 for students. We currently accept payment by check made out to the city of Kettering via mail or credit card by phone (937) 296-0294. A hardcopy receipt of payment made by phone must be submitted when you mail your edition.

SUBMISSION INFORMATION: Mail your print edition of ten (with interleaving), with the entry fee (or receipt) to: Portfolio Exchange, Rosewood Arts Center, 2655 Olson Drive, Kettering, OH 45420. Include the following on a separate paper: your name, medium, email address, website/social media handles (optional), and mailing address so we can ship your assortment of prints from other exchange participants. If you are a student, please include the name of your school.

Please ensure the safe packing of your work. No packing “peanuts” please. An easy and affordable solution to packaging: secure your print between 2 pieces of foamcore (or thick cardboard) that is at least 2″ larger than the mat on all sides, then tape along all edges of the foamcore/cardboard. Dayton area artists may deliver work by hand, but safely packed. Although Rosewood will handle all work with the utmost care, Rosewood cannot be held responsible for damage incurred during shipping.

Rosewood will act as the exchange point between contributed work and the exchange. Prints will be randomly assembled, placed in a portfolio, and shipped to its new owner by December 15, 2024. Submit and wait for your surprise package to arrive as a gift to yourself for this holiday season!

Submission Dates TBA

The City of Kettering, Ohio and Rosewood Arts Center invite artists working in any media to submit proposals for exhibition in the Kettering Health Art Gallery at Rosewood Arts Center during the January – December 2025 Exhibition Season. Proposals must be submitted via Call for Entry.

The gallery specializes in the exhibition of contemporary art by emerging local, regional and national artists. It is dedicated to the encouragement and creation of new works and to the promotion of the visual arts in the Dayton, Ohio area. Eight solo exhibitions are presented each year in the Gallery, with support from the City of Kettering Department of Parks, Recreation and Cultural Arts and the Ohio Arts Council.

A selection committee composed of three regional art professionals will make recommendations from submissions of work for exhibition. Notifications of the jurors’ decision will be emailed by the end of August 2024.

All media will be considered for exhibition, including video and installation pieces. Exhibition proposals must include the following:

1. A cover letter describing the proposed exhibition, any special installation requirements, potential public engagement programs, and available dates.

2. An artist’s statement, resume, and previous exhibition record.

3. Ten (10) images and corresponding titles, media, dimensions and dates. The committee will be presented with only 10 images for consideration. If the work you are submitting is for example only, please be specific in your explanation of what you propose to present in the gallery if selected.

The City of Kettering insures all works while on exhibition (please refer to our policy) and covers printing and distribution costs of an announcement mailer for each exhibition. A transportation and shipping honorarium of $250 is provided to artists selected for exhibition. Any cost reimbursement requirements over and above the $250 honorarium should be listed and explained in the proposal. The Gallery does not provide equipment for multimedia installations. The gallery walls are constructed of drywall over plywood and cannot be altered other than by use of standard hanging hardware. Various pedestals are available for exhibitions.
