While the vision and dream for the art studio and gallery came
from artist Willis "Bing" Davis, the Dayton and Miami Valley
community nurtured and supported this dream into a reality
through many words, deeds of encouragement and four major
community based grants. Two start-up grants were recieved
from the City of Dayton's West Dayton Develoment Trust Fund
and the major project comletion grant was awarded by the
Mathile Family Foundation plus a technical assistant grant for
operational start-up.

The EbonNia Gallery, named for son Derrick Ebon Davis and
daughter Nia Denise Davis, is adjacent to the studio and it is
designed to display and sell their father's works of art.

In addition, the gallery will present an annual exhibition of
local and regional African-American artists. The gallery will on
occasion also exhibit the works of nationally recognized African-
American artists.
