Loveland, Ohio - These Christmas trees, created by local artists, are part of the Loveland Arts Council's Winter Art Show. You can place an auction bid on the trees located in the gallery entryway of the Loveland Artists Studios on Main. Proceeds from the auction will benefit Cancer Free Kids. The silent auction opened last Friday and will end on Saturday December 15th.
Viewing hours are Monday to Friday 11AM until 5 PM, and Saturday December 8th from 11AM until 5 PM and 6 PM until 10 PM.
Open House This Saturday
This Saturday is also Open House at the studios from 6 until 10 PM, featuring more than 100 pieces that local artists have entered into the annual show. Framed art in all mediums, including paintings that Linda Fisher does with melted wax, jewelry, pottery, and more.
This is a fantastic opportunity to buy holiday presents created right here in the Loveland area.
Also on Saturday most of the resident artists in the building will have their studios open, so you get to see hundreds more pieces of art for sale and meet the artists.
Looking to take art lessons or give them as a holiday present? Many of the artists in the building teach and welcome students for private or group lessons.
Light hors d'oeuvres and drink will be provided in the main gallery and in many studios.

The Loveland Artist Studios on Main is near the Loveland Post office at 529 Main Street. It was once the Clifton Shirt Factory and a public school; perhaps the most eclectic building in Loveland. It is currently the home of more than 24 artists: photographers, glass beadmakers, stained glass artists, painters, jewelers, and fiber artists. The building is also home to Loveland Magazine. Come for a visit and see our LOVELAND MAGAZINE TV STUDIO. We've got the best office space in the building. Our front window looks out into the main art gallery.
If you have always wondered what goes with that old building near the Loveland Post Office, Saturday evening is the perfect time for a visit. Most first time visitors say, "Wow, this place is really cool, and I didn't even know it was here."
