What's Great in Dayton: January 18 - 24, 2013


If you want to see some art work of comics, Dayton landscapes, book illustrations, science fiction, portraits, and political cartoons, then tonight go to the Tejas Gallery on East Third Street in downtown Dayton. The artist is Mark Martel, local Dayton art legend and 2012 ART OFF reigning champion. There is a Reception from 6:00-10:00pm.

There's no better way to spend a Friday or Saturday night in the winter than by skating near the river, under a beautifully lit canopy. Take in the sights and sounds of downtown while sipping hot chocolate or enjoying a seasonal treat from Cafe Velo! $7 admission includes the use of ice skates. No registration required. All ages. This is at MetroParks Ice Rink; RiverScape MetroPark, 229 E. Monument Ave.; 7-10 p.m.

Myths and Mysteries in Archaeology are having a presentation on Saturday from 10:30 – noon. The theme is Amorous Astronauts, Inkblots, and A Low Opinion of Our Ancestors. The Ancient Aliens Fantasy will be presented by Dr. Ken Feder from Central Connecticut State University and this is at Sunwatch.

Wanted: Writers, poets, playwrights, filmmakers, musicians, dancers, actors, visual artists and more! Last year's inaugural event was such a success that they need performers and artists! On March 30th, artists and community members will gather together at the Auditorium in the Dayton Metro Library Main Branch to celebrate female artists for SWAN (Support Women Artists Now) Day.
