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





In 1988 Charles Wince, a self-taught artist, bought a “fixer upper” in a “bad neighborhood” for $38,800. He had no way of knowing this “bad neighborhood” would gentrify and become “Harrison West”. His home would gradually become his best known work of art.


Creating artwork; it’s one of the only things I can do well, therefore I receive a beneficial feeling of self-worth by practicing it. By most ‘professional artist’ standards, in terms of mastering the craft, I’m somewhat mediocre as it pertains to having realistic perspective and the knowledge required to master color theory beyond the basics.


I’ll offer tours of my home which is a living representation of my work through the years, inside and out.
