The work of Dayton artists in the spotlight at DVAC’s 27th Annual Open Members Show

“Artists fresh from art school next to career artists, self-taught next to MFAs, Dayton-born next to just-arrived. All works are accepted and celebrated. And in fact, our audiences say this is one of their favorite shows of the year - a snapshot or microcosm of Dayton arts all in one gallery.” said Eva Buttacavoli, DVAC Exective Director, in a press release to this news organization. 

>> 3 Dayton-area restaurants score Wine Spectator awards

This year’s theme is The Light Within, selected in honor of the exhibition sponsor, Dayton Power & Light. Each artist creates a work with their own interpretation of the theme. Over 100 works of art will be on display, ranging from paintings to drawings, photography and more. Many of these will be for sale.

The exhibition will be open until Aug. 11, and which time a “lightning round” Gallery Talk will take place to close the show. This event and all others are free and open to the public.

Metallica's Kirk Hammett hosts inaugural 'Fear FestEvil' in SF

Award-winning Metallica guitarist and horror aficionado Kirk Hammett is showing off his collection of horror-film memorabilia at Fear FestEvil, the inaugural edition of Hammett's new horror and metal convention at the Regency Ballroom this weekend.

The full name of the event is Kirk Von Hammett’s FEAR FestEvil

The inaugural event will feature highlights of Hammett’s world famous Crypt Collection (including some of the most valuable horror collectibles in the world) inside the Regency Ballroom's spectacular former Masonic temple, an extensive array of panels, live music, vendors and special guests. Attendees will also have the opportunity to wander through out the venue and experience various "haunting areas" for one-of-a-kind scares. There will even be a taxidermy class held on-site at the feastival. 

Krik told KTVU his love for the horror genre came from watching 'Creature Features' with Bob Wilkins on Channel Two in the 60's and 70's. "I've come full-circle," said Kirk. "I used to watch Creature Features every Saturday night…Bob Wilkins was one of my big inspirations."

Fear FestEvil will also feature live music with performances by an array of metal bands including headlining sets by local thrash legends Exodus (Hammett's first band before joining Metallica) and Carcass on Friday and Death Angel, Orchid and Death Division on Saturday. Hammett is scheduled to join both Exodus and Death Angel onstage at the festival, and with additional metal luminaries like Anthrax founder Scott Ian, legendary guitarist Slash and Slayer's Kerry King also on hand for Saturday's events, the possibility of a historic thrash-metal jam to close the festival is a distinct possibility.
