Linda Langhorst - Columbus Open Studio & Stage


Welcome to Guitar House Workshop, a home for artists who love music making. Our repair shop and instrument store serves as the studio for guitar makers John Bolzenius and Josh Wydick, and as painting studio/gallery for myself. We host a busy lesson program taught by several talented central Ohio musicians. Together, we are a community of artists, musicians, and artisans who consider music making a central part of the human experience. When you park in our lot or next door at the Fundamentals Learning Center, enter through our front door. Our store will be closed to the public during the tour, but feel free to touch base with us if you’d like to make a purchase.

Restrooms available

Linda Langhorst paints the places where people gather. She works primarily in oil, weaving strokes of color into some generally recognizable and personally satisfying memory of life. Perhaps best known for her body of work celebrating the Blues Highway, Linda’s cityscapes and landscapes chronicle travels in the American heartland.


I think of my canvas as a kind of tapestry. Bits and pieces of paint are layered and woven to tie people, places and time together. I’m looking to make the connection itself visible, maybe even almost palpable to the viewer. And I hope to end up with a canvas that is texturally interesting at six inches, compositionally satisfying at three feet, and an invitation to enter at greater distances.


I will display finished paintings alongside musical instruments created in the Guitar House Workshop. I also plan to include a slide show featuring “start to finish” images, depicting the development of an image on canvas over time.
