Art After Hours

Art After Hours returns for a night of art, music, doughnuts and flowers.

The annual program takes place Friday, July 29 from 7-9 pm at the Carrico/Fort Thomas Branch, which will close at 5 pm to set up for the program. 

17 artists will be featured and each will be on hand to discuss their work, which varies in form and medium – from woodwork to painting to pottery. Select items will be available for purchase. 

Plus, enjoy music from Cincinnati-based blues musician Ricky Nye, snacks from Moonrise Doughnuts and floral arrangements from Fort Thomas Florist & Greenhouses. 

The event is free and open to the public. Take a look at all the featured artists’ work below.

Tiny Art Show

New this year is the Tiny Art Show. Choose your medium and create a miniature artwork on a 3-by-3-inch canvas. Your creativity may pay off: The canvases will be displayed by age group—adults, teens and children—at the Carrico/Fort Thomas Branch during Art After Hours on Friday, July 29. Event attendees will cast their votes for Best Overall and Best for Summer Reading Theme in each age category. Winners will receive a Michael’s gift card!

If interested, make sure to register for a Take & Make bag and submit your creation by 5 pm Tuesday, July 26. There are also four in-person programs divided by age:

All events and Take & Make pickups are held at the Carrico/Fort Thomas Branch.

Thank You
