Curation Statement for Campus Creatives: Ohio Valley’s Emerging Artists

You don’t have to live in Chicago or New York to find a thriving artistic community. In fact, many of the most talented and exciting artists in the contemporary scene are living, learning, and creating in smaller – but just as passionate – cities all around the country. We are lucky to find ourselves in Cincinnati, an area with not just one, but many different prestigious universities with art programs. These institutions are shaping the current generation of artists, providing them the guidance to discover their creative voice, and the community to help hone and nurture that newfound self-understanding.

The Ohio Valley’s creative community is vibrant, unique, and on the cutting edge of the contemporary scene. This is due in no small part to the artists studying and creating in our local programs, which grow and adapt with each academic year. Though they come from many different places, and many may find themselves scattered all across the globe after graduation, their time here, in these cities and within these institutions, will have forever shaped their journey as an artist. From the practical skills learned, to the friendships foraged, to the body of work created that finally feels “right”, our local art programs give these students the time and space to radically change contemporary art, as well as their own understanding of themselves and what they want to put out into the world.

Campus Creatives highlights the work being created by emerging artists in the Ohio River Valley, from Dayton to Northern Kentucky. With this latest generation comes a shift in our local artistic community, which can only be understood by exploring the work of those whose voices are quickly moving towards the forefront.

1628 Ltd. is accepting all mediums: painting/drawing, photography, printmaking, mixed media, 3D works, etc. Work is not required to be representational. 

Nominated artists are welcome to submit 3-5 images to be considered together as a series, long-term project, or exploration of their artistic focus. We recommend that artwork be minimally 11” x 14” to be considered for this show. However, if your work does not fit the minimum size yet still works with the theme, please feel free to apply.

If you are interested in seeing the space virtually before applying to the exhibition, please refer to this 1628 blog post. Here you will find a virtual tour of our most recently scanned exhibition, Not Quite Seen

The deadline to submit for the exhibition is Friday, September 9th, 2022 at 11:59 PM. The final decisions of the art to be featured will be decided by Friday, September 30th, 2022.

I would highly recommend it for your next event. From the booking process to the logistics on the day of the shower, they made sure our event went off without a hitch.The booking process was easy and efficient. We were able to book and pay online. They communicated in a timely manner and answered all of my questions.The space is decorated so nicely, but in a way that would complement any event. The decor is so beautiful we barely needed anything to decorate the space. This alone helps save on cost to an event while still ensuring your guest are impressed!There were more then enough places for guest to sit and enjoy each other (several sofa setting areas and tables) along with places for people to eat and sit to a table.The owner was there the day of the event the entire time! We could not have pulled it off without her! She was literally helping us pull it together before guest arrived making herself totally available for what we needed. They have so many wonderful amenities including a kitchen and dishes.I can’t say enough about the place and the owner. So many of my guest expressed interest in hosting their next event there. It’s the perfect place for your next event! read less - Tracy Alexander - 6/24/2020

The day was carefully curated to meet all of our needs and the team was so accommodating and helpful from providing refreshments to coordinating ordering, setup and tear down of our catered lunch. We have plenty of places to host meetings at our corporate office but the act of getting us together in a comfortable and completely neutral space allowed us to really concentrate, collaborate and make the most of our time. I can't recommend Tamara and her team at 1628 Ltd. highly enough. We'll be using the space and experience for our quarterly manager retreats going forward! read less - Brad Slomsky - 6/24/2020

The owner is attentive and on-site all day. She is right by the door when you enter. The fee is $75/day or $100 for the week. There are several work spaces on 2 levels to choose from. The main level has lots of open spaces and big windows. There are long tables and smaller ones, couches throughout each level and private or more open layouts. There are conference rooms and small offices, as well as open concept seating with desks and office chairs suitable for a laptop and supplies. The wi-fi is easy to set up and fast. There is a fridge on both levels with a large kitchenette on the main level where you can use the microwave, convection oven, freezer, and sink. There is coffee, tea, water and assorted snacks on both levels. Snacks range from sweet to salty. Mugs, creamer, sugar, plates, flatware and cups are provided, as well as some carbonated beverages and refrigerated water in glass jars. Everyone was friendly and the spaces are confortable and spacious. The only drawbacks I noticed are that the upper level is cold (I kept my gloves on all day and wore layers) and if you are not near a window, the spaces can be rather dark. Lamps would help with that problem. If you need to get a lot of work done and noise distracts you, I would recommend this place! read less - Christina F. - 12/20/2019

I didn't have the opportunity to check out the upper level.Beautiful decor. Felt like a living space. Like home. There are conference rooms, but remaining space/open space included some desk-like tables facing a wall, upholstered chairs with side tables and a section of lucite tables with chairs along the windowfront. It felt a little too open/vulnerable for me. No way to take calls or have a conversation without feeling like you'd disturb your neighbor. Intimate like working in a beautifully decorated living room. Which is fine if it's with Co workers rather than strangers. Hard to describe...I prefer the utility of the layout at Union Hall. More conducive to "work", less "home" feel. Quiet work nooks and call booths, tucked away spaces and various zones. More privacy, feels like you can be ducked-off in your own workspace, though visible to others. But that's also a bigger building with lots going on.I didn't feel like I could focus, get into my zone and get work done at 1628- totally My preference/with style and is subjective. But very stylish and beautiful decor. Love the fully stocked, open access kitchen. Free snacks and coffee.I found a parking space right out front, but I could see parking possibly being a bit of a challenge. read less - Candis Sistrunk - 6/24/2019

The space here is absolutely beautiful with plenty of seating areas both downstairs and up. There is a large conference room downstairs with smaller ones available throughout the space as well.

It was very comfortable and it didn't take me long to get cozy, especially with nice amenities like free drinks, coffee, and snacks. You can also order lunch from one of their lunch partners and they will bring it to you once it is delivered. They are big on offering services here that you might not get at other co-working spaces. The wifi was fast and secure with no issues; thumbs up.
