Our annual list of the Top 10 Art Galleries, as dictated by our readers, didn’t change up a whole lot from 2010 to 2011. Which leads us to believe that people are pretty happy with the galleries that they are comfortable and familiar with.

For the second year in a row, Rivet topped the list, serving as a great retail store in addition to an art exhibition space. Rivet remains popular largely in part to their accessibility with unpretentious shows and often affordable price-points for local entry-level collectors.

The Top 10 Art Galleries of 2011:

  1. Rivet
  2. Roy G Biv
  3. 83 Gallery
  4. The Wexner Center
  5. Junctionview Studios
  6. OSU Urban Arts Space
  7. Lindsay Gallery
  8. Columbus Museum of Art
  9. 400 West Rich Street
  10. Madlab Gallery

    As for the water features comment Sherm, I find it \awesome the ratty old warehouses can make the list in this city. Watch the progress and the results will for sure head in the favor of Franklinton moving forward.
