The Kettering Health Art Gallery specializes in the exhibition of contemporary art by emerging local, regional and national artists. It is dedicated to the encouragement and creation of new works and to the promotion of the visual arts in the Dayton, Ohio area. Six to eight solo exhibitions are presented each year with support from the City of Kettering Department of Parks, Recreation and Cultural Arts and the Ohio Arts Council.

A selection committee composed of three regional art professionals will make recommendations from submissions of work for exhibition. Notifications of the jurors' decision will be emailed by August 22, 2024.

All media will be considered for exhibition, including video and installation pieces. Exhibition proposals must include the following:

1. A cover letter describing the proposed exhibition, any special installation requirements, potential public engagement programs, and available dates.

2. An artist's statement, resume, and previous exhibition record.

3. Ten (10) images and corresponding titles, media, dimensions and dates. The committee will be presented with only 10 images for consideration. If the work you are submitting is for example only, please be specific in your explanation of what you propose to present in the gallery if selected. Rosewood is open to proposals for ancillary educational programs, community projects and artist talks to coincide with the exhibition.

The City of Kettering insures all works while on exhibition (please refer to our policy) and covers printing and distribution costs of an announcement mailer for each exhibition. An honorarium of $250 is provided to artists selected for exhibition. The Kettering Health Art Gallery at Rosewood Arts Center does not provide equipment for multimedia installations. The gallery walls are constructed of drywall over plywood and cannot be altered other than by use of standard hanging hardware. Various pedestals are available for exhibitions.
