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.

Wonderful art talk today by DAAL member Bev Goldie and some of her students ( a few are also DAAL members) at the Columbus Cultural Arts Center where they have the show Hot Wax/ Cool Art. Bev explained the materials, tools, and techniques of encaustics, then her and the artists described how they were used in the pieces in the show. Fascinating!
Bev is teaching a one- day workshop thus Saturday, there are still openings if you are interested. All materials provided.
