Karen LaValley - Columbus Open Studio & Stage


24 Lincoln Street Art Studios is located in the fabulous Short North, adjacent to the Sharon Weiss Gallery, on the second floor of Found at Sharon Weiss Gallery. The art studios are the first and only artist studios in the Short North, and boast a welcoming environment with warm light and an at-home charm. Artists Lisa Parks GodfreyAmy Adams and I have created a one-of-a-kind art haven, where you can watch us while we work, and simultaneously take in all of our current work hanging in and around our studios. In addition, you can explore and enjoy all of the artists on view at the Sharon Weiss Gallery and Found. During the weekend of COSS, I will be demonstrating all day Saturday. Saturday afternoon in the Short North is a perfect time to come visit our studios, and then grab a bite to eat at one of the many restaurant options. Parking in the Short North is easy with the PARK CBUS app, or in the Joseph Parking garage. If you’re visiting on Sunday, all meter parking is free downtown.

Restrooms available

Handicap accessible




Karen LaValley has her BFA from The Ohio State University and works primarily in oil. She has exhibited at The Butler Institute of American Art, The Ohio State Faculty Club and the Riffe Gallery. She has also painted in juried plein air competitions in Wisconsin and Colorado. Her work is in both private and public collections.


My work is comprised of impressions of life including figurative, landscape and still life. My strong, colorful, painterly brushstrokes do not speak with a whisper yet can tell an intimate story of place and time. I am drawn to un-manicured scenes that beckon me with a question of their history.


I will be demonstrating oil painting.
