The Ohio Arts Council’s Riffe Gallery presents
Build It: Artists Creating Community in Ohio

The Ohio Arts Council’s (OAC) Riffe Gallery presents Build It: Artists Creating Community in Ohio, an exhibition exploring the work of artists who, in addition to making their own artwork, build community for artists and for those in their geographic area. The arts community is unique in that it not only includes artists making work, but also frequently expands to include and positively impact people residing in the surrounding area. 

Featured artists include Anissa Lewis, Ann B. Kim, Ashley Jude Jonas, Calcagno Cullen,
Dana Lynn Harper, Eli Gfell, Glen Cebulash, Gloria Ann Shows,
Jordan Buschur, Jessica Pinksy, Liz Maugans, and Stephanie Rond.

ALL EVENTS ARE FREE AND ONLINE UNLESS OTHERWISE NOTED.
