Feeling the Local Love

Posted on 14 March 2012

The economic recession has taken its toll on each and every one of us in one way or another. Through those tough years (*note my optimism with past tense phrasing) we heard a lot about the importance of supporting your community to sustain local businesses and help keep the city we love in positive spirits.   [caption id="attachment_1693" align="aligncenter" width="500" caption="Click image to see more of Tom Towhey's artwork"]Cincinnati, Art, ADC, Art Design Consultants, Art Gallery, Fine art, Interior Design, Event Venue, Wedding Venue, Online Art, Framing, Custom Framing, Downtown Cincinnati, views, Original Art, Corporate Art, Art for Healthcare, Art Collectors, Art Consulting, Beauty, Inspirations, Fashion, Hotel Art, Restaurant Art[/caption]

 

Big Heart

Just as we buy souvenirs to remember the places we traveled and the adventures we’ve had—supporting your local artists showcases the nostalgic adoration we have for our Queen City home. By buying local we keep moral high and show pride in our city. They say “home is where the heart is” and from what I’ve seen, Cincinnati’s got big heart.

We show pride in our sports teams, the Cincinnati Reds & Bengals, our famous Skyline Chili, our parks, zoo, and universities—let’s show our local artists a little love too! Well, many corporations right here in Cincinnati are doing just that! Several of our recent projects here at ADC have really shown me just how many companies, designers, and individuals truly appreciate the talented artists in our region.   [caption id="attachment_1695" align="aligncenter" width="500" caption="Click image to see more of Ursula Brenner's artwork"]Cincinnati, Art, ADC, Art Design Consultants, Art Gallery, Fine art, Interior Design, Event Venue, Wedding Venue, Online Art, Framing, Custom Framing, Downtown Cincinnati, views, Original Art, Corporate Art, Art for Healthcare, Art Collectors, Art Consulting, Beauty, Inspirations, Fashion, Hotel Art, Restaurant Art[/caption]  

Symbol of Support

You can find local artist’s work in the newest building in downtown Cincinnati, The Great American at Queen City Square! Nothing says hometown pride and optimism like grand architectural design right in the heart of downtown. (I mean come on, it’s got a tiara top!)

The Local Perks

If you display local artwork in your office or home you’ll find that it makes the best conversation piece. One of the most commonly asked questions I hear when we have newcomers to the gallery is “is this artist local?”   [caption id="attachment_1705" align="aligncenter" width="500" caption="Click here to see more of Kevin Poole's artwork"]Cincinnati, Art, ADC, Art Design Consultants, Art Gallery, Fine art, Interior Design, Event Venue, Wedding Venue, Online Art, Framing, Custom Framing, Downtown Cincinnati, views, Original Art, Corporate Art, Art for Healthcare, Art Collectors, Art Consulting, Beauty, Inspirations, Fashion, Hotel Art, Restaurant Art[/caption]   Not only is it impressive to showcase the talent in your town, it also tends to give you more options. When the artist is local, many times you have the opportunity to customize the pieces you'd love for your space. More often than not, artists are willing to add certain colors to a piece to customize it to your paint swatch! Or you can even commission a completely new piece of artwork to fit your particular size and style needs! So, the next time you are looking for a new piece of artwork, remember to show the locals some love—it is the perfect way to capture the culture and colors of the city we all love so dearly!
