Carol Stewart - Columbus Open Studio & Stage


Carol Stewart’s studio is in the Milo Grogan neighborhood. It is in an 1894 public school building designed by J. M. Freese who also designed Franklin Park Conservatory. It was closed as a public school in the late 1970s and became a studio building in 1988. As you approach the building you will see that it resembles a castle. There are approximately 30 live/work studios in the building. My studio is in the 1920s addition. Please park in front only on the south side of 3rd Avenue. There is additional parking on 9th Avenue and in the rear of the building (through gate on 9th). A volunteer will greet you on the front steps and give you directions to my studio. There will be a short introductory video in the hallway outside of the studio. Inside the studio you can experience my still life paintings and learn about my working process. After you have visited the studio you are welcome to visit the Community Garden – to the west side of the building. I am very active in planting and maintaining the garden to be part of the community as well as using the flowers for my still life paintings.





Carol Stewart (born 1959, Canada) has a B.F.A. from Queen’s University, Ontario, 1981 and an M.F.A. in painting from Fontbonne University in St. Louis, Missouri, 2010. Carol’s paintings can be found in private and corporate collections in Canada, the United States and Europe. She is represented by Hammond Harkins Galleries.


I have been compelled to paint nearly every day for more than 35 years. My south facing studio and gardens are a source of constant inspiration: full of light, color, pattern and texture. My observational still life paintings are the result of steady work, a motivation to create, and inspiration.
