About the Gallery

411 is a community arts gallery & cultural space for exhibitions, events, and collaborations with Columbus’ arts and cultural organizations.


A project of the downtown Arts & Entertainment District, this space is managed by the Columbus Area Arts Council. 411 is made possible by grants from the Efroymson Family Fund, the Columbus Area Visitors Center, the Columbus Museum of Art and Design and by donations from the community.

What’s on: 

On view December 12–February 14 are two shows celebrating cooperation and individuality. 50/50, A Community Art Project brings together 50 community members to create a group show of small pieces, each with their own take on a common theme. COLLABORATION   by Bob Anderson, Bobbie K Owens and Laurie Wright is the result when three personal aesthetics, three different media and three decades of friendship merge as collective works of art.

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.
