The ArtWorks V² Gallery is unlike any other gallery in Cincinnati, focusing on young emerging Artists. Inspired by ArtWorks amazing apprentice program, the young artists of this program learn the tools and techniques of lead artists and create their own individual works of art to exhibit as an intentional group show. The ArtWorks V² Gallery is located at 901 E. McMillian in Walnut Hills.
Artists featured the ArtWorks Gallery are selected to participate in our Youth Artist Gallery Residency Program.

The Way We See Ourselves: Telling Stories Through Self Portraits: August 21 – October 16, 2021.
Led by Artist April Sunami, this exhibit will challenge young artists to think of portraiture as a form of storytelling. Sunami has spent well over 15 years creating portraits of women utilizing a variety of mixed media. Each item that she uses helps to tell the story of the subject she is portraying. Young apprentice artists together with Sunami will explore narrative and finding meaning through mixed mediums. The end of the residency will culminate in an exhibition featuring the self-portraits of the participants, and a collaborative artwork.
Cut the Bias: October 29 – December 18, 2021
Led by the artist collective, Batres Gilvin, youth artists will create painted hammered tin wall hangings, inspired by traditional Mexican folk art materials and techniques, with contemporary messages. This exhibit runs October 29 – December 18, 2021.
