"Growing up in the ancient center of carpet weaving, Azerbaijan, had an unarguable effect on me as an artist. I have been surrounded by beautiful rugs and textiles ever since I was a child. These objects were not mere decorations, but also served utilitarian and even medicinal purposes."
Learn the ancient art of weaving with artist Sariya Babanova.
Galleries 1 and 2 will be open during the workshops
Pique’s latest show, Home, is the first of its kind. An all-woman, mulit-cultural show featuring students from Art Academy of Cincinnati and DAAP. Four students from AAC and three from DAAP have come together with Pique Gallery to create "Home", a collaborative endeavor to showcase each young woman's unique visual language and background. United by color palette, their pieces reflect personal inspirations, concerns, and experiences while engaging with larger social bonds. Through exhibition, the artists extend their narratives and conversations to the community.
Pique is located at 210 W Pike Street, Covington, KY. The space is an open ended art experiment. The common denominator is that workshops, classes, and events will take place frequently in the context of 6 exhibitions that inhabit the space over 12 months. Through our events, we create opportunities, connections and funding for artists and/or the community. We hope at some point this year through our challenging exhibitions, workshops, lectures, classes, and events to blow your mind.
For a completely immersive experience, book a weekend for 2 through airbnb.
