About the League

Who We Are : The Dublin Area Art League is a non-profit organization established in 1985 and encourages art through interaction with fellow artists; educates through workshops, demonstrations and lectures; and provides opportunities for the representation of local art to the community.

Join : Membership in DAAL, with annual dues, is open to anyone living in the Central Ohio area interested and practicing Fine Arts: amateur, professional or enthusiast. Fine arts in this context include: painting, graphic arts, sculpture, photography, fiber arts, ceramic arts, and mixed media. We are open to adults age 17 and older and any skill level of ability. We offer Family Memberships for artists living at the same address.

Benefits : The Dublin Area Art League holds monthly meetings and four juried shows a year. Monthly meeting content varies, and includes guest speakers, critiques, on-site sessions, media demonstrations and more. Since its inception in 1985, the Dublin Art League takes pride in our members and is represented by many varied talents.


The Dublin Area Art League is a section 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization and is partially funded by the Dublin Arts Council through a Community Arts Grant to encourage community engagement, cultivate creativity and foster life-long learning through the arts.

What a wonderful group outing with fellow DAAL artists today! We visited the Bridget Turner Gallery and saw the solo show by Doreen St. John. Both Bridgette and Doreen were there, and made the visit so special!
The artwork is stunning, by Doreen and by other artists as well.
😊😁🎨🤓🤓 thanks to all that came!

Work just completed to submit to the Ohio Art League's Thumb Box Exhibit. Deadline is this Fri., the 13th- it's not too late to submit your own small work! Go to www.oal.org/thumbbox for more details. ...

The big reveal! Art just completed for the Ohio Art League's Thumb Box exhibit at the Franklin Park Conservatory from Nov. 18-Jan.3. We are asked to create work no larger than 6"x6"x6". I was looking around for canvases or boards that fit those dimensions when I came across some CD cases- and an idea was born! I decided to create works that would go with the theme of the music and to include their cds in the final pieces.
