This is a hidden treasure. I am sure there are people who have lived in Columbus, Ohio who have never seen this gallery. I found it to be very nice, very quaint. I loved it.

The Inaugural Juried Exhibition November 5, 2015–January 9, 2016 Several pieces of interest and also an exhibit in the lobby, Inside Looking Out: Creative Works by Ohio Prison Inmates November 5–December 12. Worth a stop by! We spent an hour, and that worked well.

We saw a show of "tables" that included items of a variety of style and of quality, all produced by artists in Ohio. The labels are good, including information about the artists. Definitely worth a visit.

I don't know why I don't stop into the Riffe Gallery more often - it is free and open almost every weekday (it does close for a week or two when the exhibits are changing), and always has interesting exhibits.
