INDUSTRIOUS. CREATIVE. COLLABORATIVE.
IN THE HEART OF OHIO.
Open Wabi, located in an early-1900s furniture factory in rural Ohio, offers emerging and established artists the time, space, and environment to encourage growth and experimentation in their practice.
A UNIQUE ENVIRONMENT
Open Wabi is located on 20 acres in an historic furniture factory. The environment is a mix of industrial and natural — nestled in a quaint central Ohio town. Artists have large, private studios (16ft x 30ft) and can also utilize wooded areas, pasture, and architectural remnants.
A RESIDENCY IS VALUABLE.
AT OPEN WABI, IT’S AFFORDABLE, TOO.
We provide everything you need for a comfortable and productive residency. And our facilities are designed without unnecessary frills, so we can keep it affordable. Private and shared bedrooms are available. Outdoorsy? Camping is also available.
FOCUSED ON THE INDIVIDUAL.
IN A SUPPORTIVE COMMUNITY.
In order to foster growth and build relationships, we limit the number of artists per session. Residents have the opportunity to present their work and engage in critique with fellow residents and visiting artists in a supportive community.
