16 selected works from the AGORA 9 showcase

For the ninth year in a row, AGORA was a vast showcase for Columbus’ visual artists held at Junctionview Studios in the Grandview Heights neighborhood.

And AGORA is not a quiet art exhibit – in fact, it’s almost a party atmosphere.

Saturday, I joined other art enthusiasts to observe 450 pieces of artwork on display created by around 200 artists.  Plus, there were 8 bands, 6 food vendors, 10 craft vendors, art cars, a fashion show, a fire show, live comedy, even an Instagram installation.

I agree with Halie Williams from Columbus Underground who wrote, “I was immensely impressed with not only the number of works showcased, but the amount of talent and diverse pieces of artwork.”

AGORA celebrates Central Ohio's diverse and talented creative community. AGORA guests have the opportunity to view and purchase hundreds of works of art, wander through working artists' studios.

Below are a few of my favorite works from the exhibition.
