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.  View the online version of the previous exhibition at weredoingitallwrong.com.


Another ambitious goal of the exhibition is to find a signature piece or pieces of artwork that while keeping to the exhibition’s theme defines our current period in history from the artist’s viewpoint.  One art piece can tell so many stories and the goal is to find pieces that will speak to future generations and tell a story about our time.


Each artist must submit original Artwork except in the case of Photography. Artwork submitted should speak to the exhibit’s title and description.  In-person gallery hours for the exhibition, as allowed by state pandemic mandates, will be complimented by an online version of the exhibition.  Additional locations may be added after the initial two month exhibition in Dayton and each artist will be able to continue to exhibit their artwork at their discretion.
