The Art Supply Depo features significant gallery exhibit space in our shop, ready to showcase the finest artwork in a variety of media. Exhibits rotate at least six times per year and feature creative minds from across the nation. In addition to our rotating gallery exhibitions, we are also proud to feature a continuous display of handmade art items crafted by hands and hearts in Toledo and the surrounding area.
Our exhibitions are on view anytime during business hours, and we also stay open late for Art Loop. Running from 5:30 to 9pm on the 3rd Thursday of each month April through December, the Loop is Toledo’s signature monthly arts experience. Explore the downtown community through self-guided tours of 20+ venues hosting those creatives who make a splash in our vibrant city. The Loop is a program of The Arts Commission, presented in partnership with the artists and participating venues - like the Depo! - who make it possible.
If you would be interested in exhibiting at the Depo in the future (please note we schedule our exhibits at least 6 - 12 months out), please email email@example.com. In the email, be sure to include three to five images of the artwork you intend to show, as well as an artist's bio, your contact information, and website (or other promotional platform). The Depo exhibitions committee will contact you from there!

About the artist:
Perrysburg resident Christine Deemer has found her passion in the encaustic medium. After moving to Perrysburg in 2014, she has been welcomed into the area arts community with open arms receiving accolades, awards, gallery showings, teaching opportunities, and more. Her talent and ambition to continue learning and exploring new mediums beyond her advanced degrees have combined to make her current work in encaustics an artistic sensation. After painting in hyper-realism for the past 5 years she was introduced to the encaustic medium by Toledo area artist Kathryn Housepian. She connected immediately and set up a home studio to pursue the medium. The medium gave way to her applying her multifaceted talent to creating dimensional seascapes so realistic the paintings become a visceral experience. Speaking of encaustic, she states, "hot wax reminds me of clay with its ability to be molded and carved. Working with a liquid that quickly becomes a solid is also exciting".
