Located in Cincinnati just minutes from the downtown area, Art Design Consultants is Cincinnati’s premier fine art gallery. With a gorgeous 5,000 sq. ft. gallery and event space, ADC Fine Art provides an ideal space for ViewPoint 52.

This exhibition is open to all artists 18 years of age and older. All work must be original in concept and executed by the entrant after January 1, 2017. All artwork must be for sale. A 50 percent commission is payable from each sale. "Price on Request" is not acceptable. A top award winner from 2018 or 2019 (1st, 2nd, 3rd Place or Gallery Representation) is acceptable, but will be ineligible to win one of those awards in 2020. Entrants are eligible for one award only. The following media are EXCLUDED: photography, crafts, fiber, computer-generated art, painting on photos and jewelry. Paintings created in workshops or classes also are not accepted.


Framed Dimensions are crucial and shall not exceed a size of 48” wide (frame excluded). Each piece must be suitably framed and ready for hanging, using strong screw eyes, D-rings, or mirror hangers and wire. Gallery-wrapped canvas finished and/or painted on all sides is acceptable. Artwork requiring glazing should use Plexiglas™ or other plastic glazing. Shipped artwork using standard glass poses the risk of damaged artwork and is not advisable. Glass is acceptable for hand delivered work. However, plastic glazing is preferred on all artwork.

Free Standing Sculpture must not exceed 36” x 36” x 60” high and must be stable or attached to a stable base. Wall Sculpture must adhere to the same dimensions and framing as paintings and is limited to a depth of 15”.

 Your Supplied Images

Any digital manipulation of supplied photographs must be limited to making the digital file look more like the original art, otherwise risking disqualification. If you need to show multiple views of Sculpture or 3D Artwork, combine views in one image for online submission.


Detailed shipping instructions will be mailed to all artists whose work is selected for ViewPoint 2020. Shipped work will be returned following the show closing.
