Now that the holidays are upon us and in the spirit of season, I would like to take a minute and thank all of you for being part of ADC’s journey this year. From our incredible clients, to the talented artists we work with every day, we couldn’t have done it without your support, loyalty and friendship. I am so grateful to have all of you in my life.
You are the backbone of the business. You allow us to do your framing and put art into your offices, restaurants, medical facilities and homes. You believe in all the good that art brings!
One of our favorite things to do is create beautiful and inviting spaces for you!
Of course, where would we be without all the artists we have the pleasure of working with every day? Thank you for creating work that is not only beautiful, but meaningful to those it touches. We are truly humbled by your talent and dedication to your craft.
I’m so grateful to have such a talented team at ADC who make it happen every day! Your hard work, dedication and loyalty is what makes the business run so smoothly and our clients so happy!
I am very grateful to have received the Woman Owned Business of the Year awarded by the Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber last December! It’s a dream come true!

Van, Sophia, Angel, and Hanna inspire me every day to do the best job possible. They are everything. I am grateful for their love, advice, guidance and help! Thank you for being so supportive of what I do and the long hours I work!
In memory of my dear friend Vanessa who we lost this year, let’s all pledge to Live Sincerely and make a point to be kind and generous to those around us. I learned the importance of this from her. She taught me that every day is special. Pledge to Live Sincerely HERE.
Make a vow this year to give back to the people in your community. The causes ADC supports mean so much to us.
My final wish for you…Peace of mind, prosperity throughout the year, health for you and yours, fun around every corner, energy to chase your dreams and joy to fill your Holidays!
And because of YOU, the Male Cancer Support Center (MCSC) received an outstanding monetary gift to go towards its cause! Many of you remember ADC’s support of Breast Cancer through the SCAR Project, well this time it’s all about the boys! As the first non-profit specifically geared towards men, the MCSC has a commending mission to provide a safe, comfortable and supportive environment for men living with cancer while raising awareness, raising funds and gaining support throughout our communities. To learn more visit MCSC’s website or read their article in Venue Magazine!
It was a great celebrating seasonal cheer with old friends and making new ones.
Here at ADC, we are committed to showcasing the diverse artistic community and helping our talented artists succeed! It is such a fulfilling feeling to have multiple genres and mediums represented at one show, and a great testament as to how different works can come together in the home or office without disrupting the room’s flow or energy! We had a striking encaustic by Tom Owen, wonderful photographic works by Marc Wavra and Brian Truono, mesmerizing mixed media abstracts by Jeannine Dostal and Mary Barr Rhodes, a compilation of Kevin Poole and Ken Rausch works, and who could forget Karin Sheer’s lithe little butterflies – just to name a few!
We could not have put on such an incredible evening without our wonderful artists and event sponsors!

Set the Table is back! (View last year’s post here).
Thanksgiving is such a meaningful holiday to me, because it’s all about slowing life down a little, reminding ourselves to be thankful for each and every moment, and coming together with friends and family through the comfort of good conversation and food (yum!).
When you’re getting ready to entertain family and guests nothing sets the scene better than a vibrant artwork! The warmth and energy of a piece of art immediately forms a cheering and engaging environment for you and yours to enjoy, and to create another year of memories.
When entertaining, another great way to add seasonal flare and instantly brighten your holiday spread is by framing prints and rotating them throughout the year!
First impressions are extremely powerful. We all strive to put our best face forward, whether it is through a solid handshake, our wardrobe, or a friendly smile. But initial perceptions go beyond that of the individual. Our home & office should make a grand first impression too, which is why after years of working in the art business I continue to stress the importance of choosing the right piece of artwork for the entrance of your space!
The first piece of artwork someone sees when they walk into your space is what sets the tone for the rest of their experience. Through this initial design, your style—the mood & energy of the space—are immediately understood. You want the entrance to be welcoming, memorable, and enticing.
Colors Energize and instantly create an engaging and inviting space.
Earth tones bring warmth and comfort.
Large artwork visually simplifies a space, which creates a relaxing atmosphere—making the most out of minimal design.
High contrast creates strong, dynamic visual impact. Dark walls with pops of white or white walls with pops of colors create a refreshing space.
A common saying is to make your “house a home.” Why not have your guests or clients feeling ‘at home’ right away? Through an inviting first impression, your guests or clients will want to stick around, come back again, and tell their friends.
