The University of Dayton gives to its namesake city in many ways. Through service, immersion trips and mere proximity, we strive to put our specialized resources towards the betterment of Dayton. The door, however, swings both ways, and the city of Dayton does much to embrace the ever-growing population of students at UD.

The Cline Show, produced by the Dayton Visual Arts Center (DVAC), is one of those ways. Named in memoriam of Barbara C. Cline, a former DVAC office manager who worked closely with area university student artists and interns, The Cline Show continues her legacy of teaching area artists about the artist-gallery relationship.

Students from schools including Sinclair Community College, Wright State University and, of course, The University of Dayton among others are nominated to participate in the juried production after completing a 3-month workshop that teaches the planning, mounting and publicizing aspects of a successful art exhibit.

This year, Dayton Art Institute Yeck Fellow and winner of the 2012 Hovarth Exhibition’s Best of Show prize Chloe McEldowney ’13 was nominated to participate by her painting professor, Jeff Jones. Through him, she has nurtured the “passion for art that he instills in students through his enthusiasm — something that I will always be appreciative of,” McEldowney said.

McEldowney is submitting several pieces she completed last year, Per quanto riguarda il gioco dal vivo invece non e ancora possibile utilizzare le giochi gratis slot machine gratis da bar anche se sono molte le voci che parlano di questa tipologia di intrattenimento e che sperano nel 2014 come anno di una ulteriore rivoluzione. two of which have been exhibited in national exhibitions. Her Best in Show-winning piece, Daphne, is the piece chosen to represent The Cline Show on their press release.

UD has a deep pool of artistic talent; one the art department takes care to nourish and guide.

“UD’s professors have been incredibly encouraging of me, as well as other students,” said McEldowney. “I am exceedingly blessed to be surrounded by such interactive and encouraging professors.”

After graduating in May, McEldowney intends to apply to graduate schools to continue her fine arts education.

“I plan to continue creating artwork and embark on my career as a fine artist,” she said, “exhibiting in galleries and impacting people’s lives through my work.”

The Cline Show is up at DVAC through the month of March with an opening reception March 1 from 5-8 p.m.
