The Ohio Art League is an innovative leader in Ohio that has been supporting artists throughout all stages of their careers since 1909. OAL connects member artists from across the state to patrons of the arts. Through professional development, mentorship, and advocacy, OAL works strategically to help Ohio cultivate and retain top art talent while positioning the state as a hub for the arts. The Fall Juried Exhibition is part of a bi-annual tradition that has been a mainstay of the arts in Ohio for several years. The exhibition is ever-changing, pairing member artists from every imaginable medium with a juror who brings their own flair to the selection process. The 2023 Fall Juried Exhibition Juror is Bellamy Printz, an active member and artist in the Cleveland art community with personal and professional ties to major businesses, institutions, and organizations where she has been organizing exhibitions for 23 years.

Talle Bamazi's My Dwell


Talle Bamazi Retrospective

January 15 - March 27, 2024

Please note: The gallery is closed March 2 - 10 for midterm break.

Born in Kara, Togo, West Africa, Talle Bamazi can be described as an artist who uses canvas as a site for activism. Through his art, Talle is intently compelled to share the story of his homeland while purposefully paying homage to his ancestors and the culturally significant ties between traditional and contemporary ideas. Bamazi established the Kabiye Impact Contemporary African Art (KIACA) Gallery in 2003, located in Columbus, Ohio, where he was able to educate patrons on the enduring cultural gifts of his beloved Africa, while also serving as an influential talent incubator for young artists of color. He has had several solo exhibitions, including Brecht Forum in New York and Goethe Institute in Lomé, and has been featured at the Columbus Museum of Art and the National Afro-American Museum and Cultural Center.   

Reception: Thursday, January 18, 5:00 - 7:00 p.m.
