Adjoining this unique space is the Front Street Experience Gallery (former studio of Mike Elsass Color of Energy Gallery). An Oregon District store since 2013, Spice Paradise is part of the Activated Spaces Project and a longtime dream come true for owners Ulrike and David Massey. Because of her travels, Ulrike has inculcated so many different tastes, so many types of cuisines that it defies any categorization. Everything you see in the store is a reflection of that variety. It is the spices that will capture most imaginations. They are unlike most things you find in your local supermarket. Many are hand-blended by Ulrike. What a great setting in which to start on a new painting and to welcome art patrons to Art in the City.
Stop in Friday from 5 - 9 p.m.. Visit with Doug, watch him at work while you browse this colorful and popular shop (We recently tried their packaged potato, corn, and leek chowder - WONDERFUL!!!!) in Dayton's historic Oregon District.

Go to www.centervilleohio.gov or phone (937) 433-7151 for more information.Dayton Daily News columnist Pam Dillon features Doug's work in her Sunday, January 15th column.
Doug Fiely likes to tell stories. His books are gallery shows. His subject matter? Anything from nature, to architecture, to people. His chapters are separate paintings and prints. His sentences are disguised as delightful visual narratives. The Dayton artist is currently presenting paintings and prints at The Art Gallery at the Centerville Police Department.
"My inspiration comes from observation. I spent years teaching figure drawing.
So I like working with figures in different variations. Generally, I'm inspired by glancing at something," said Fiely. "I raised chickens for many years; but I'm fascinated by the shapes, the contrasts and dissonance of things. I have a sort of modernistic, geometric style."
He creates those styles in his studio at the intersection of Keowee and Webster Streets.
"I spent a few years doing non-objective or abstract art. But it was too linked into what I learned in art school, you know, color and balance," said Fiely. "I wanted to be more of a storyteller. I want to say something about a subject."
He grew up on Grand Lake St. Mary's, so he used to fish. One of his paintings depicts fat fish in a gray to blue continuum shown vertically on a vibrant geometric background. The shapes and angles are paramount to the piece. He is also presenting a textured painting of the Carillon Brewing Company, along with some prints in the glass case that include a wood engraving of St. Anne's rooftops.
"Printmaking is schizophrenic. Wood engravings are meticulous and time consuming. The drawing may be spontaneous, but the execution is very precision oriented," said Fiely. "For painting, it's just nice and loose and free; reacting to the subject and trying to get the story."
He has a graduate degree in printmaking at Bowling Green. He taught K-12 art at Stryker, a little rural community in northern Ohio where he raised chickens, goats and turkeys on a 5.6-acre farm. He is a professor emeritus from Defiance College, where he's taught all types of art classes.
Fiely moved to Dayton about 3 years ago, but he's been involved with the Dayton art community for the past 20 years. He's been involved in Art on the Commons, and he has some private and corporate collections in the Oregon District and downtown.
On February 25, he will be the featured artist for Art at the Trace at Yankee Trace Golf Club. The painting that he is donating for the auction is "Ruth's Pewter," an acrylic on canvas still-life of a woman's collection of mugs, and vases, and chalices. The event is sponsored by the Centerville Arts Commission. Advance tickets are $15; price at the door is $20.
Fiely is a member of the Dayton Visual Arts Center, the Dayton Society of Artists, and the Dayton Printmakers Cooperative. He presented works recently during DVAC's Holiday Gift Gallery, and this past year has shown his art at River Center Gallery in Toledo, ArtSpace in Lima, and 4 Corners Gallery in Angola, Indiana.

Doug has 6 pieces in the Landscape/Cityscape exhibit. These paintings were executed in late winter of 2016 from a large window in his downtown Dayton OH studio. The inspiration for the exhibit centers on the fact that both landscape and cityscape have an art historical importance dating back to the beginnings of art itself, and that today?s artists, in choosing to work in one of the genres, of necessity add to and alter its dimensions and possibilities. Landscape/Cityscape proposes a contemporaryenue for new perspectives on ancient forms.
Landscape/Cityscape presents the work of 19 artists from around the state of Ohio who have focused on one of the two genres in their work. Artists in the show include: Beth Basista, Andi Baumgartner, Laura Barnhardt Corle, Jeff Doseck, Tom Emerine, Doug Fiely, Nancy Frankenfield, Cathy Huber, Dan Knepper, Jodi Knoch, Linda Lehman, Chris Leeper, Jim Lipps, Craig Lloyd, Marie Louden-Hanes, Scott Rose, Mary Lou Schepp, Leslie Rohr Scherer, and Becky Swora. There will be works in oil, acrylic, watercolor, colored pencil, silverpoint, and photography.
A reception for the artists, their friends, and the general public will be held on Friday, September 16, 2016, 6:30-8:30 pm. The exhibit will run through October 29, 2016. ArtSpace/Lima is a not-for-profit arts organization with a mission to promote the arts in northwest Ohio and to provide artists with a venue to present and to sell their work. ArtSpace/Lima is supported in part by a generous grant from the Ohio Arts Council.

CSA "Tasting" and Artist Meet and Greet, details below
CSA Artist Palate Party, details below
CSA Harvest Party, details below
This is a first for Doug. His work has been chosen to be part of a groundbreaking project, CSA(rt). You may be familiar with Community Supported Agriculture (CSA), where patrons buy "shares" and in turn, receive timely deliveries of "fresh from the garden" produce. Dayton Visual Arts Center (DVAC) has sponsored the same community supported philosophy with art being purchased and delivered instead of produce. Out of 120 applicants, six artists were chosen to have their work included in the "basket" of art which will be delivered to shareholders on August 9th. Doug is one of those six artists who was selected to create an original work in an edition of 50. He will be creating a woodcut print for this project.
CSA art is limited edition art for CSA Shareholders only - unavailable elsewhere. CSA artwork is created for the DVAC-CSA in an edition of 50. This is what, like an agricultural CSA, makes it "fresh and local." 50 shares will be available for purchase by the public.
Each piece will be no smaller than 4 x 7 inches and no larger than 11 x 14 inches. Every work will be signed and editioned by the artist. Shareholders will receive all 6 works at the following event: DVAC CSA Harvest Pick-up Party on August 9, 2016, 6 - 8 p.m. at Dayton Beer Company, 41 Madison St., Dayton, OH. More information and invitations to follow.

DVAC's Biennial Juried Members Show
The emotional resonance of objects, common or curious, is something that drives artists to create new work from what has been discarded. Over the past century, many artists?painters, writers, poets?have seen potential in the ephemera of life, inspiring works that strive to preserve memory, beauty, history or simply the mystery of the past. This exhibition of juried work by DVAC members?selected by curator Eileen Carr and artist Christina Pereyma (the collaborative team of Remnants, on view at DVAC during the same period)?will present a range of works that reflect the resonant potential of objects drawn from life.
