About the Essex Studios Art Walk
The artists of Essex Studios open their working artist studios at the
quarterly Art Walk events. The Art Walk takes place the first full
weekend in October, December, March & May each year. Artists
transform their studios into art gallery environments designed to
showcase their particular media.
There are many wonderful artist collectives and studio complexes in
Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky, but none of the other large
group shows exhibit the depth and breadth of art featured at Essex
Studios. The beauty of an Art Walk weekend is the unparalleled
diversity of artists, artworks and patrons.
One of the unique characteristics of the members in our collective is
their diversity of experience. No where else in Cincinnati or Northern
Kentucky can you find professional working artists residing in studios
adjacent to emerging artists. This diversity of talent and experience
creates a welcoming space for all artists and art patrons.
The diversity of artworks created by Essex Studios artists includes oil
paintings, photographs, sculptures, fused & blown glass, wood
carvings, metalworks, ceramics, textiles, jewelry, graphic design,
letter press, silkscreen prints, and artworks created from colored
pencils, graphite, spray paint and watercolors.
As you can plainly tell from the photo gallery to the left of this
description, Art Walk weekend guests represent every walk of life. One
of the more exciting features of the Art Walk events is that all types of
people are welcome and present. Many patrons remark that they feel
as though they are transported to a major metropolitan area, such as
New York or San Francisco, when they are at Essex Studios due to the
eclectic and diverse aesthetic of the space.
