Located on Main Street in Alexandria, Ohio, Sunbear is the working studio for Meredith Martin, pastel artist, and also a gallery dedicated to showing the original work of local and Ohio artists. Showcasing a group of talented people’s creations, including photographers Aimee Lambes and Ruth Smilan, stained glass artists Kurt and Lorry Wendling, craft artist Sarah Williams, watercolorist Fran Mangino and jewelers Bonnie Moseley, Deirdre Pifer, and Laurie Simpson. These artists are ‘regulars’ at the studio and their beautiful works are consistently available to collectors, while new work is presented bimonthly.

In addition to the Sunbear regulars, the studio invites guest artists to participate in our “events” - fun gatherings that take place in the spring and fall, featuring artist demonstrations, original art discount sales, live music, food and prizes. It’s all part of a lively two or three day event. Sunbear events are open to the public, and information is always available on the website and on Facebook.

Classes at Sunbear Studio are a favorite and a huge success. Stay tuned frequently for current happenings and upcoming classes taught by well-qualified, working artists available in a variety of formats. Most classes are held at the studio and are open to students of all ages, depending on the class. Private lessons in various media are also available.
