Bob Anderson, Bobbie K Owens and Laurie Wright


Drawing on three decades of friendship, photographer Bob Anderson, painter Bobbie K Owens and printmaker Laurie Wright have concentrated their talents in this series. Echoing the classic whispered game of telephone, these works demonstrate a playful exploration of the creative process. The union of the artists’ materials, techniques and visions hints at their individuality while showcasing the energy and power of collaboration. 


Community Studio

The 411 Community Studio is a flexible space for local and visiting artists to work, meet and collaborate. Made of custom plywood panels and built-in furniture, the space is meant to evolve as artists work with the community to reimagine the exhibition wall into temporary installations. The Community Studio is part of the Columbus Area Arts Council's inaugural residency project and was made possible through generous support from Heritage Fund: The Community Foundation of Bartholomew County.

Open Studio

411 hosts drop-in artmaking activities for all ages. This program is made possible by a grant from the Indiana Arts Commission.

411 is made possible by the generosity of these organizations:
