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 firstname.lastname@example.org. 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!

In celebration of the release of Maura Amato's newest coloring book, Art Supply Depo Toledo presents Let's Color This Town., filling our in-shop gallery space with professionally printed images of Maura's original works.

The Old West End - or OWE as it's referred to 'round here - comprises 20+ city blocks filled with one of the largest concentrations of late Victorian houses left standing in the United States. In Maura's newest coloring creation, as in the OWE, you'll find shining examples of Colonial, Georgian, Italian Renaissance, Queen Ann, Dutch Colonial, French Second Empire and Arts and Crafts homes.
In conjunction with Maura's exhibit appearing on the June 15th and July 20th Art Loops, Art Supply Depo Toledo will hold an open-to-the-public coloring contest for both adults and children - stay tuned for details, deadlines, and prize announcements!
This exhibit can be viewed during the Art Loops mentioned above (6/15 + 7/20, 5:30 - 9pm), or anytime during regular business hours from Monday, May 29th through Friday, July 28th.
