Founded in 1989, ROY G BIV Gallery is an independent, nonprofit arts space located in the historic Short North neighborhood of Columbus, Ohio. ROY primarily exists to provide a space for artwork that transcends commercial concerns, and to provide that space to artists before they are fully established.

SPACES is a contemporary art venue dedicated to artists who explore and experiment. Located in downtown Cleveland, SPACES currently operates three programs to feature the excellent works of our curated artists: R&D (Research & Development), SWAP (SPACES World Artists Program), and The Vault.
