CINCINNATI - Since the dawn of cave paintings, artists have used their own walls to showcase their work. The latest to do so in Cincinnati is John Sloan, an Alabama native and recent graduate of the Art Academy of Cincinnati, who for one night every month turns his Over-the-Rhine apartment into Hobohaus Gallery .

WCPO Digital’s Matt Peiken went to Hobohaus on July “Final Friday,” when Sloan exhibited some of his conceptual photographs and those from two other artist friends. The seed of Hobohaus, Sloan said, were the “art lucks”—artist-led potluck meals—he hosted in his apartment.

The artwork is up for one night only, then brought down as Sloan reconverts his apartment back into a living space. The next one-night exhibition will be Aug. 30, in Sloan’s third-floor apartment at 24 W. Court St.
