Studios on High Gallery Hits 25!
In 1986, four artists opened the doors to the public at 686 N. High St. offering a glimpse of their creative processes along with the opportunity to buy unique handmade pieces. Today, the gallery is comprised of 18 exhibiting artists. Judy Hoberg, one of the original artists and the creator of clay critters, still has her studio located in the gallery.
With artists demonstrating daily, Studios on High Gallery (SOHG) is a unique place in Columbus' Short North. The gallery provides an opportunity for education and interaction with painters, ceramic artists, jewelers and glass blowers.
The gallery is looking forward to a year-long celebration of the artists and community that have given Studios on High Gallery its longevity.
