Upcoming Shows and Events

Who and what are we? On one hand Inspirado @the Madison Gallery is seen as an art gallery with a restaurant inside. Some see Inspirado @the Madison Gallery as a fine dining restaurant with a lot of unique artwork available to its visitors. However, this creative spaces is an out-of-the box idea reflective of a unique partnership that has formed between Inspirado @the Madison Gallery owners (Chef Baron Shirley and Dr. Chris Green);

Dr. Parrish G. Monk, the Executive Director of  the Independent Northern Kentucky Artists and Artisans Program Inc. 501-c-3 better known as "INKAA"; and a collaboration between local artists and artisans. 

In the same space, while being surrounded by a unique art gallery featuring the juried artwork from local artists and artisans in a perpetual, ever changing art show, you will find an deliciously unparalleled and pleasant culinary experience at the hands of Chef Baron, one of the Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky's top chefs and culinary artists. Here, you can read an article about Chef Baron  ARTICLE.  You have to take a peek at the menu ( when you get a chance. Better yet, please stop by and enjoy the eclectic global cuisine in person.      

Then there is INKAA....  INKAA is a unique not-for-profit art business incubator and arts education program headquartered on the second floor above the Gallery.  

​INKAA, a driving force behind the gallery, is a not-for-profit art business incubator and arts education organization registered in the State of Kentucky. INKAA is "P-art business incubator, P-art gallery, P-art artisan retail shop, P-art education, all cooperative…"  Our mission is to provide equitable access to the arts and art business opportunities to established, independent, emerging, and aspiring artists and artisans from the Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky areas. INKAA helps to empower and support independent artists and artisans as entrepreneurs and small creative business owners.
