”If you have a small amount of people, but they’re amazing people, you can do a lot,” Whittle says.

‘The Clubhouse’

A survey of the sea, religion and more, Immerse is Vest’s first solo show. Yes, she’ll have live models and mannequins in fantastical headdresses, but the onetime graphic designer is eager to take over Pique’s entire gallery/Airbnb with a multidimensional installation.

In the information age, libraries and librarians are more important than ever to our society, given that they are purveyors of reliable information. I don’t think the general public is even aware of their importance, especially in our current political climate, or what a crucial role librarians fill. I wanted to highlight that importance by turning a light on the inner thoughts of our librarians. 

Librarian-Artists Celebrated With Unique Exhibit

Both Brown and Whittle seem deeply committed to cultivating a community in Covington that supports artists. With the Center for Great Neighborhoods and Renaissance Covington spearheading the revitalization of their city and sponsoring projects by various fine artists, Pique seems poised to make even a short-term difference in the local arts scene.

Compared to Chicago, Whittle says Cincinnati is still up and coming. Her goal is to create a local movement. Pique provides a unique venue which welcomes any kind of art making. “It’s a place to explore an idea without judgment. People reach out to me when they need a place to sketch out an idea.”

The landscape of Performance Art in Cincinnati: Part I

Pique is Covington’s newest artistic space, combining an art gallery, workshops and classes with weekend rental living spaces. Owner Lindsey Whittle and her husband purchased the building at 210 Pike St. with the idea of turning the accompanying storefront into some type of art space.

Most guests who stay at this single-bedroom Airbnb across the river from Cincinnati are not artists but people who are curious about having a judgment-free experience with art, say the owners.
