We are so excited to announce that our 2021 Art on the Commons Festival will feature local artists! As we move into a brighter time and new beginnings, Rosewood is taking time to highlight all the incredible accomplishments and work of artists right here in our community.

The event will feature ten local artists this fall with both in-person and virtual displays as well as extensive virtual programming.

Each artist will be featured for one week at Rosewood Arts Centre so you can see their incredible work in-person as well as on the AOTC website.

Stay tuned and follow us on social media for the big reveal of our line-up in May of 2021.

Our 32nd Annual Art on the Commons was a success! Exclusively online, the festival was live from August 6 - 9, 2020, and brought in over 16,000 visitors to this unique virtual event featuring over 80 artists from around the country, and tons of exclusive online artist demonstrations, interviews and the 91.3 WYSO Excursions Stage with Niki Dakota! Organized through Rosewood Arts Centre and the City of Kettering's Parks, Recreation and Cultural Arts Department, this special event was made possible with support from the Dayton Daily News, 91.3 WYSO, the Miami Valley Communications Council, the Ohio Arts Council, the Kettering Parks Foundation, The Joan W. McCoy Memorial Art Fund, and the Kettering Arts Council.
