Several times a year, the artists of Essex Studios open their working artist studios for ArtWalk events. During the ArtWalks, artists transform their studios into art gallery environments designed to showcase their particular media.

Held from 6:00-10:00 pm on both Friday and Saturday, join us to view art by some of Cincinatti’s best artists, eat good food, enjoy live music and participate in interactive displays.

Upcoming Dates for 2017
March 3rd & 4th
October 6th & 7th
November 3rd & 4th
December 1st & 2nd


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.

The diversity of artworks created by Essex Studios artists is just as diverse as the artists residing there. Pieces you  might find include oil paintings, photographs, sculptures, fused & blown glass, wood carvings, metalwork, 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.
