Thumb Box 2021


Ohio Art League held its very first Thumb Box exhibition in 1916 and we are excited to

be continuing this annual tradition 105 years later!

Thumb Box is a free and open show for all of OAL member artists.  Members may submit up to three pieces

of art that fall within the measurement guidelines: 6" x 6" x 6" including the frame. Artists will receive 75% of sold work,

with the remaining 25% going to benefit the arts and programming initiatives of the Ohio Art League.


IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT IN-PERSON EXHIBITION


The 105th Thumb Box will be the Ohio Art Leagues for in-person exhibition since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. Prior to this point, OAL functioned with all shows operating with the support of volunteer members.

To have this exhibition in-person, however, as stated in your membership; volunteers are required. We are a volunteer run organization and will need a few volunteers for the install on Friday December 3rtd, the opening reception on Saturday December 4th as well as gallery hours on December 5th, 2021. We will also need volunteers as gallery sitters for a few hours on the weekends of December 11th and 18th. Finally, we need a few volunteers for pickup dates that will be in January. If we do not receive volunteers we will have to transition the show to a virtual exhibition only.

To volunteer to support the in-person exhibition please visit the volunteer page and sign up today.
