*PIQUE is a gallery and bed and breakfast. This makes it hard to have regular gallery hours. Please see our calendar and Facebook page for open events, and feel free to call/text Lindsey about times to come see the gallery:
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 wanted to highlight that importance by turning a light on the inner thoughts of our librarians.
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.
Experiments can fail, of course. But that’s also how you learn.
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.”
