Our city proudly harbors myriad art galleries that could take this top spot, but the Short North's ROY G BIV took yet another round in the battle of the best. The gallery showcases artists rising through the ranks of the creative process and emphasizes those working in Ohio, recognizing and promoting our state's deserved artsy street cred.
The exhibits are always edgy and cool, whether they're dioramas with tiny people or wall-consuming installations. The gallery also prides itself on continuing the conversation about art through exhibit talks and meet-and-greets, a bonus that Alive readers appreciate.
Runners-up: Ohio Art League, Lindsay Gallery
