Call for Board Members

We are reaching out to all members as it is time to start acquiring new members of the Ohio Art League Board of Trustees. We are seeking several new board members to participate in shaping the coming years of one of largest and longest running statewide arts organizations in Ohio.  If you or someone you know might be interested in volunteering to be a member of the Board of Trustees, please visit the link below to complete an online form that will provide us with enough information to invite you to a future board meeting where we can discuss your interest and possible appointment.

 The Ohio Art League has been and continues to be a member driven volunteer-based organization since 1909. Without the hard work of our board members and member volunteers, the organization would not be able to provide, monthly networking meetings, member artists marketing through social media, manage the Thumb Box; Fall Juried Exhibition; Spring Juried Exhibition, and provide opportunities such as the curated exhibitions at the John Glenn Airport’s Gateway to the Arts Gallery.

 We look forward to working with all of you who might be interested in helping support the future of this long running artist organization
