Highline Coffee Art Space

Located both inside and in the north-facing window of Highline Coffee Co. in Worthington, Ohio, Highline Coffee Art Space is an intimate art gallery showcasing the work of emerging, mid-career, and established artists who live in the central Ohio area.

Over time, the Art Space presents a variety of media and styles, from acrylic and oil paintings to fine art photographs and mixed media work, from realism to abstract. A recent expansion added the North Window Gallery, featuring sculpture, ceramics, and other 3D artworks.

Experience Columbus and Columbus Underground recognized Highline Coffee Art Space as one of the central Ohio’s suburban art galleries not to be missed. As an exhibit venue, Highline Coffee Art Space endeavors to support our talented local artists while offering a warm, welcoming, and enriching environment.

Christine Ruddy: Photographs, September 2-October 1

Central Ohio photographer Christine Ruddy returns to Highline Coffee Art Space for her second solo show as she exhibits her unconventional fine art work in the North Window Gallery, September 2-October 1, 2020.

A self-taught artist, Ruddy experiments with unusual subjects, using her unique vision to capture images that others may overlook. In addition to being a fine art photographer, she is a photojournalist as well, specializing in social justice issues.

“I’ve learned that I can capture images that are uniquely mine,” Ruddy explains. “I’m always seeking something different and rare to photograph. Many times I look for vintage items in flea markets and antique stores and incorporate them into my work. By repurposing these items into images, they can be enjoyed and appreciated by many generations to come.”

When traveling, Ruddy bypasses the usual tourist attractions to find locations that most visitors might avoid. Determined to create photographs that speak to the essence of the region, she captures images that have a “different perspective to illustrate the often underrepresented aspects of our culture and history.”

A Shutterstock and Getty Images contributor, Ruddy is a member of The Center for Fine Art Photography, the SE Center for Photography, and the Ohio Art League. Earning international awards and exhibited in galleries nationwide, her photographs have been published in 26 countries.

“We’re so happy to have Christine’s distinctive work on exhibit again in the Art Space,” says Christie Bruffy, owner and manager of Highline Coffee Co. “While our seating area is closed, the North Window Gallery provides an alternative venue which allows viewers to see her intriguing photographs from the outside even when our shop is not open.”
