On display from January 7- 30, you can check out Ohio Art League member artists Louise CapteinN. Penney Denning, and Christine Guillot Ryan for Concourse Gallery‘s Collage 2015 Exhibition.

Along with other artists, these three OAL members explore a wide range of approaches to the medium of collage or collage-mixed media. Creating these two- and three- dimensional works allows the artists to be more flexible and spontaneous before committing to a final composition.

Join us Sunday January 11, 2015 from 3- 5 p.m.at Concourse Gallery in Upper Arlington for Collage 2015 Opening Reception. 

Stay tuned through the winter, because curator and OAL member-artist Char Norman is going to stretch the traditional view of photography this spring with Beyond Photography at the Concourse Gallery.

From May 1 through June 26, 2015Beyond Photography brings together a diverse group of artists who use photography as an element of their work; from photogravure, a photo-mechanical process which results in a high quality intaglio print, encaustic and even iPhone snapshots, Norman incorporates various aspects of the photographical process as progressive categories for the medium.

Each year, the Ohio Art League puts on a non-juried exhibition, in which we display any of our members’ submitted works within the confines of a 6″ x 6″ x 6″ boundary. Thumb Box Exhibition allows our organization to proudly portray our members and their talents, despite the miniature canvas.

There is no fee to submit for current members, so make sure you attempt to log in before filling out the submission form. Don’t forget to upload images of your work, so that we can brag about y’all on social media 😉

Deadline for submission is Saturday, November 29 by NOON (12 pm)

Thumb Box will be exhibiting from December 4, 2014 through January 2, 2015 at RAW Gallery in Downtown Columbus. Don’t miss the Opening Reception on December 4 from 7 -10 pm!

PS- Many of the members’ works act as perfect holiday gifts!!
