Essex Studios

“Great markets for art have always been in diverse and sophisticated urban centers that offer a depth and authenticity of experience—history, culture, and excitement.”
— Benjamin Genocchio, Executive Director of the NY Armory Show

Essex Studios creates just such a diverse market for art with its quarterly ArtWalks, welcoming the public to view a wide variety of artist studios at 2511 Essex Place in urban Cincinnati’s Walnut Hills district.

The next Essex Studios ArtWalk takes place on Friday, October 6 and Saturday, October 7, 2017, from 6 to 10 pm.

Along with exploring the studios and meeting the artists, visitors can check out guest artists’ work in the hallways and sample tasty fare from participating food trucks.

The concept of the Essex Studios was born in 2000 when owner Trent Heimann converted the building into workspaces for artists and other creatives. The building now houses over a hundred studios of artists working in every medium. Among the offerings are outsider art, jewelry, ceramics, photography, painting, pastel, custom woodworking, sculpture, a Cat Museum, a printing company, martial arts, an actors’ studio, and a massage parlor.

At the Essex art classes also abound, including the Art Academy of Cincinnati’s Community Education program and Karen Kelly’s open studio watercolor workshops.

The ArtWalk will take place again on November 3-4 and December 1–2, 2017 (for the annual Holiday ArtWalk).
