Tucked away in Over-the-Rhine, a few blocks from the typical Final Friday stretch, is the unassuming, yet classy Carl Solway Gallery. Divided into several sections, with big, open spaces and small, intimate nooks, the gallery is a combination of comfortable and cool.
Without an air of arrogance, Carl Solway Gallery greets you with ease
Around for more than 40 years in several locations, the current gallery's design lends itself to an array of artists. Information for each section and artist is easily found or handed to you by a helpful curator or staff member. Openings sometimes generate a crowd, but it's also a great place to visit in the afternoon when you can relax, enjoy the gallery by yourself and truly soak in the surroundings.
