Artiscape - An Artist's Gathering

Tickets on sale now! 

Save the date! The sixteenth annual Artiscape – An Artist’s Gathering, returns to Dublin, Ohio April 27-30, 2017! People from around the globe come together to take hands-on workshops to learn new techniques or refine their skills, shop for art supplies and unique embellishments, get inspired by finished works of art, and more!

Artiscape is an artistic event of mixed media workshops presented by a select group of professional instructors, a Marketplace, an Outsider Art Fair, a Preview Party, demonstrations, a silent auction, and more!

More than 40 hands-on workshops are expected, with topics like bookbinding, jewelry, metalwork, beading, calligraphy, altered books, and mixed media. The Marketplace on Saturday features vendors focused on quality art supplies, vintage findings, and ephemera. The Outsider Art Fair on Sunday features artisans offering finished works ranging from mixed media collages/assemblages, to home decor, to hand crafted books, to wearable art.

The Orient Express ~ This year’s theme!
The name of a long distance passenger trained service created in 1883, the Orient Express has become synonymous with intrigue and luxury travel. The two city names most prominently associated with the Orient Express are Paris and Constantinople (Istanbul), the original endpoints of the timetabled service. Attendees will enjoy this fun, evocative theme.

A Weekend of Fun
By combining social gatherings, eclectic shopping, and fun and challenging classes, we strive to create a weekend for you to remember. Take a full schedule of workshops, or just a few and relax with a book in the garden atrium lobby. Come for the weekend or the afternoon. The goal is a fun, educational weekend among friends, old and new!

Artiscape was named an event “not-to-be-missed” by Country Living Magazine. In 2016 the event drew more than 300 artists from 26 states and 3 countries.

This year Joe Rotella joins Lisa Ohmer to co-host Artiscape 2017, with event support provided by Create N Craft.
