Columbus is a great city for the arts, with many galleries, exhibitions, classes and most important of all… local artists. Their work can be found in spaces large and small, all throughout the city, and many local artists have gained a fan following amongst the growing community that appreciates and supports what they bring to Columbus. After both Joey Monsoon and Laura Alexander dominated the top of our Best Local Artist rankings for three years each, the crown is being passed in 2014 Christopher Burk, a painter who focuses on urban landscapes.

Burk is a graduate of CCAD and a member at the Tacocat Cooperative in Grandview. 2014 was a busy year for Burk, who had work in exhibitions at The Riffe Gallery, Brandt-Roberts Galleries, The Ohio State Fair, The Cultural Arts Center, and other spaces.
