The We're Doing It ALL Wrong® - 3rd Annual Art Exhibition will open as a two month long exhibition beginning August 3, 2023. Planned by the Edward A. Dixon Gallery, the juried exhibition is a challenge to artists and viewers to recognize, react and learn about the many ways humanity continually fails itself. These issues are not always mainstream and sometimes are hidden. Artwork from the prior exhibitions touched on topics such as the environment & climate change, dependence on technology, social injustice, Native American women disappearances, homelessness, gaslighting and the suffering caused by avocado farming in Mexico. Artists are encouraged to submit work that captures or is a comment on a tradition, a system, a practice, an institution or anything they see that needs repair or removal that has existed in this state for far too long.

Cynthia Kukla’s Separating the Earth from the Heavens was the first solo art exhibition presented at the Edward A. Dixon Gallery’s new space on St. Clair Street in Downtown Dayton.
In this carefully curated body of Cynthia’s artwork, she folds ancient, diasporic histories into contemporary painting spaces using experimental color combinations and layered references drawn from ancient history. She carefully weaves into this pantheon of figures and ruins subtle references to contemporary political events. On viewing some of her color tableaux in pinks, golds and Aegean blues, we are transported back to the ancient Mediterranean from where she selects most of her imagery. Other paintings deploy eye-popping contemporary color combinations; some of her goddesses and ruins are silhouetted against ‘very-now’ hot pink or saturated yellow skies.
