Opening, Founder Ed Dixon[edit]

The gallery opened initially in 2017[3] at 12 S. Ludlow St. in Dayton, Ohio but was forced to move in May 2020 partially due to the Dayton Arcade reconstruction impending traffic and the Covid19 coronavirus pandemic as contributing factors that led to its closing. The gallery reopened in the fall of 2020 at 118 W. First St. inside the Talbott Tower in Dayton, losing 1000 square feet of space from 1400 to 400 square feet. [2]

Ed Dixon is a local Dayton real estate agent and wears many hats as a music producer, film executive, fashion show producer, and self-proclaimed space creator. Dixon in 2020, “Initially, I wanted to open a gallery to bring to Dayton what I thought was my vision of ... what an art gallery not just should be like, but what I see in other cities like New York or LA. I wanted to bring that feel here and so I just absolutely wanted to continue that even (before) leaving that (former) space.”[4]

In addition to his duties at the gallery, Mr. Dixon is involved in the arts community as an ambassador and mentor, and has served as a juror for several art exhibitions including the 2020 Art of Soul sponsored by the National Afro-American Museum & Cultural Center and the Ohio Arts League 2021 Fall Juried Exhibition.[5]

The We're Doing it All Wrong art exhibition was an international call for entries to create dialogue and spark ideas related to the many ways humanity continually fails itself. It ran from May through July 2021.[7]
