Michael W. Hensley

For forty years Michael put his artistic passion on hold as he worked his way through a career in advertising. As a founding partner in an agency called HSR, he was given the opportunity to collaborate with some amazingly creative people globally, working in Europe and Asia and supporting some of the largest and most beloved brands in the world. Taking that world of experience, Michael picked up the paint brush again in 2018 and started painting with the energy and passion of an emerging artist. Michael has become a very active member of the Cincinnati art community participating in many local artist groups and art shows. In 2021 Michael along with two other partners took ownership of Galley 708 where he learned first hand how to run a gallery. Today Michael maintains a gallery in the Pendleton Art Center in downtown Cincinnati.
