Charles Wince - Columbus Open Studio & Stage


I look forward to demonstrating my less than novice but short of professional carpentry skills, as well as attempting to be witty and amusing in describing my motivations as to why I do what I do in my artistic endeavors to all interested attendees. Touring my home is an adventure in itself. Public parking is available in front of my studio/home/museum on both sides of 2nd Avenue, as well as adjoining roads.

Restrooms available

Handicap accessible





Charles Wince moved to Columbus from rural Ohio in 1982. Wince, a 61 year old self-taught artist with learning disabilities has a unique style that has prompted some writers and critics to categorize him as an ”Outsider/Visionary.”


“What motivates me? My learning disabilities—my blessing/my curse. I’m not very good at achieving normal things; however, early on I found I had a knack with creating artwork and so have stuck with it for more than 52 years. With this focus I’ve achieved a rather unique narrative style.”
