Karen Albanese Campbell - Columbus Open Studio & Stage


Our studio is in a three-story brick building on 5th St. between Spring and Naughten. You’ll come to the front door where you’ll be greeted by a Phoenix Rising volunteer and directed to our space toward the back of the building. There will be work on display and for sale by me and other Phoenix Rising members. Metered street parking is available, and on Sunday all meters are free.

Restrooms available

Handicap accessible
Our building has a separate accessible entrance which needs to be opened upon request. Just tell the front door volunteer and they will arrange to have it opened and direct you to its location.






Karen Albanese Campbell holds a BFA in painting and printmaking from Boston University. Originally from Syracuse, NY, she moved here after living in Mexico and has called Columbus home for over 30 years. She is a core member of Phoenix Rising Printmaking Cooperative, and a member of ROY G BIV.


My work focuses on printmaking, painting and textiles. I address the way “home” is created with whatever is available under extremely limited circumstances. I am currently working on a series of prints that explore my feelings about displaced children sleeping outside, the refugee crisis and homelessness.


I will be inking drypoints and collographs and printing them on damp paper. This type of inking is specific to intaglio. I will also have a kid-friendly printing activity with Styrofoam plates and water-based inks available for participants to create small prints to take home.
