Loveland, Ohio – The Art League of Loveland has announced the 3rd annual Art Gallery Crawl, which will be held Saturday, June 24, from 4 until 9 PM.

The event is back by popular demand and boasts the participation of 118 artists featured throughout the City of Loveland showing their wares and talking with guests about their work. The show includes jewelry makers, painters, sculptors, ceramic and glass artists, fiber artists, and many more. 

As always, Loveland’s seven primary art galleries will be holding Open Houses and featuring a variety of renowned artists — both past and present.  In addition, eight local businesses will be featuring artists, including Bond Furniture, Hometown Cafe, Trailside Provisions, and more. 

This year’s Art Crawl will have a Welcome Tent at Union Savings Bank on the corner of West Loveland Avenue and Wall Street, where participants can get more information, such as a map of all the venues and a listing of all the artists participating.

The Art Crawl brochure will also show the mile-and-a-half route the event’s “Art Buggy” will be taking, so guests can either walk the route or hop on the free shuttle to pursue their artistic journey viewing a wide variety of art and meeting local artists and artisans. The galleries and venues will be providing special deals and light refreshments for all.

“The show really highlights artists living in and around Loveland,” says Deirdre Dyson, the show’s Honorary Chair and one of the city’s award-winning artists. “Loveland has so much to offer artistically, and we’re proud to sponsor this city-wide event celebrating the arts.” Dyson is the owner of Art House II, which features several galleries of her work.

Overall, 118 artists will be showing their wares, including jewelry, paintings, drawings, pottery, sculptures, glass, fiber arts, and many more.

The Art Gallery Crawl once again will be offering four $250 raffle prizes for participants who complete the Art Gallery circuit and visit each venue. Each prize entitles the winner to select $250 worth of artwork from any of the participating artists/galleries.

There will be several additions that make this Art Crawl a “can’t miss” event! For example, thanks to the Grail’s Art Director, Caroline DiGiovenale, there will be a Childrens Station at Jackson Street Market offering free crafts and activities to entertain young and old alike. A food truck, Caveman Crepes, will be serving up sweet and savory fare at the Welcome Tent. Plus, there will be live music by Ellen Mershon at Whistle Stop Clay Works! This is a free cultural arts event for the entire family brought to you by the Art League of Loveland and the Art Crawl’s many generous sponsors. All are welcome.



The Art Crawl highlights the City’s vibrant art culture — and focuses on the extraordinary creative works by our many Loveland artists!

This event also introduces participants to Loveland’s rich art history. For example, in historic West Loveland, there are two art galleries that feature internationally renowned artists:

Nancy Ford Cones (1869-1962), was an award-winning pioneer in photography as an art medium.

William Schickel (1919-2009), was a prolific liturgical artist and architect whose body of work includes paintings, sculptures, stained glass, and furniture design.

During this one-day art event, Loveland Art Galleries and Artists hold Open Houses from 4-9 PM and offer light appetizers and drinks, while also showcasing a featured artist or highlighting artwork for sale. Altogether, there are seven art galleries and dozens of artist studios within the city.

To provide an extra element of fun for our art crawlers, most galleries provide individual raffles, and one large LAGC raffle prize ($250) will be offered to those crawlers who complete the entire art gallery circuit.

The LAGC “Art Buggy” Shuttle offers hop-on, hop-off transportation from one end of town to the other (about a mile-and-a-half circuit).

All Loveland artists who live and/or work within the Greater Loveland area are welcome to participate. Many local businesses also support this event by featuring local artists’ works or through sponsorships.

The first Loveland Art Gallery Crawl was initiated last year by a group of committed artists and art lovers. The success of that event led to the creation of the Art League of Loveland (ALL), a non-profit organization for artists and art lovers that is dedicated to ensuring all artists thrive in the Loveland community.

This year’s Loveland Art Gallery Crawl is led by members of the Art League of Loveland. For more information:
