The Heights Can Really Call Itself “Home of the Arts.”

Artists are moving in to the Heights! As an artist myself, I am thrilled about what this means for local artists. But I am also excited for the community. Your neighborhoods are about to become more vibrant and colorful with these inspiring artists in your midst. The space is the brain child of Artful Ohio Inc. Artful was formed two years ago with the goal of bringing affordable artist studio space to the Heights.
Artful’s home will be on the second floor of the Coventry School at 2843 Washington Blvd. in Cleveland Heights. Lake Erie Ink and Ensemble Theatre also are located in this building. The space includes 17 studios–most of which already have occupants. There are just a few studios left; Artful is accepting applications for those.
Resident artists include Judith Barr (mixed media), Adam Brumma (3-D printing), Beverly Carter (jewelry and painting), Dick Dawson (painting), Angela Dobbins-Rivera (soaps, candles and skincare), Mandem (mixed media painting), Satu Papanek (sculpture and mixed media), Susan Prendergast (jewelry), LaSaundra Robinson (painting) and Laura Stack (painting). One studio has been set aside as a space for current college students and recent graduates.
Stop by and be inspired at the Free Grand Opening Event: Saturday, March 11 5 to 9pm.
