Our studio is located in the historic neighborhood, OTR, or Over-the Rhine.
You can see the beautiful Music Hall from our second floor. We are in the heart of Cincinnati, steps away from the street car, Washington Park, and endless number of bistros and bars. Any artist who chooses to stay with us will also be walking distance to art stores, the C.A.C and the 21-C Hotel Museum.
Kitchen at Fuse
We renovated our studio with visitng artists in mind. On the first floor, artists will have access to a fully functioning kitchen. Stove, small refrigerator, dishes, pots and pans, french press, and single cup, (re-usable filter) coffee maker and plenty of storage. Artists can stock up with food for the kitchen, or simply walk out the door to find an endless number of cuisine choices. Fuse is happy to supply the kitchen with the basics, otherwise, the visiting artists can shop at our local outdoor market, Fidlay Market for your day -to day needs.
Art Library and resources
We love books! Please peruse our art books while at your stay at Fuse Press. We easliy have hundred of books, on Printmaking and our favorite artists and exhibitions. Can’t remember a specific printmaking technique, just use our library. Our library is quite small compared to Cincinnati’s world class library just steps away from OTR. The library can supliment your tech needs. The maker space supplies laser printers, 3-D printers, laser cutters, book binding and printing.
Storage in the Studio.
We have a flat file for you during your stay. You can store your prints and paper in your own flat file. The studio has many of the consumables you will need: newsprint, solvents, tub-O-Towels. Each artist will have to work out paper, ink and matrix needs prior to your visit. Each artist will have to purchase a certain amount of what they need to complete their project, this will be worked out individually prior to your visit.
There is one full bathroom in the studio, located on the second floor. A bathtub, shower, toilet and sink are all available to the visitiing artists during the stay. Towels, shampoo, hand soap toilet paper. It is not a private bathroom, but there is plenty of storage available in the bathroom for all of your toiletries. We do not have washer and dryer at the studio.
Fuse has a small courtyard behind the studio, which leads to the garage, our wood shop. The courtlyard is very private, sunny lovely place to take a break.
