Rick Limes - Columbus Open Studio & Stage


Part of the 400 Square family, 400 W. Rich is a group studio site where you will find 12 COSS artists in 10 separate studio spaces. You can park on the street (all spaces are at this time unmetered), in the gravel lot on Lucas and Rich (free), or the parking structure behind River & Rich off McDowell (small fee). To enter, walk east on Rich to the open gated lot just before the railroad bridge, and walk toward the back of that space (follow signs) to the garage door entrance. There you will be greeted by a volunteer with a map of the COSS participating studios within 400. Do NOT use the brightly colored doors on Lucas—those are secure doors for artists only. Be sure the visit my fellow 400 Square artists while you’re here!

After receiving a BFA in graphic design, Rick Limes spent the next 43 years in “rush mode” as a graphic designer, production artist, advertising director, illustrator and art director. He has now learned how to relax at being a fine artist.


Much of my art is a reflection of the past. I have been creating art inspired by my interest in historical art and design. I have created educational cards that give historical background for the original historical images. “Reflections of the Past” is what I am calling my current series of work. I explore different techniques and styles with each piece. I think that is why people say that I have no style.
