Two of Columbus’ Premier Public Galleries
The Cultural Arts Center has one of the largest and most welcoming art gallery spaces in central Ohio. With regular exhibits across two galleries, we offer an ever-changing array of mediums, colors, philosophies, approaches and artistic statements.
Our Gallery Space
Individuals and groups are invited to both our Main Gallery – featuring local, regional and national art – and our Loft Gallery, primarily used to showcase our students’ work. Admission to both our galleries is free!
Featuring individual exhibitions, group exhibitions and juried shows, our Main Gallery is located on the ground floor of the Cultural Arts Center and is usually the first thing visitors see. Shows, which typically run for about a month and a half, may be collections of works of a specific medium, or a variety of mediums following a common theme.
The Loft Gallery is utilized principally for individual or two-person exhibitions by students from our classes at the Cultural Arts Center. It represents for up-and-coming artists, or those in the learning process, the opportunity to not only display their work, but learn about everything that goes into the process of coordinating a gallery show. The Loft Gallery is located on our third floor, with exhibitions there typically lasting 4-6 weeks, and is accessible by elevator as well as by stairs.
