Take Your Art Career to the Next Level!

The Success Summit, a 2-day conference for artists, will take place November 16th and 17th, 2023 right here at ADC Fine Art gallery in downtown Cincinnati. And, it’s just for artists like you—busy, hard-working, and trying to take your art career to the next level. We are creating an experience where artists come together to learn how to succeed in their business, network with gallery owners, interior designers, art consultants, and corporate and private collectors, all the while making lifelong connections. We wanted to give you a forum for making a great impression on potential clients, gallery owners, and industry experts. 

Pick and choose as many workshops and presentations as you would like and receive portfolio and website reviews from the ADC team. Breakfast and lunch will be provided on Thursday and Friday along with a special happy hour that will include all artists exhibiting in the upcoming ACA exhibition that Saturday. 

As an extra bonus, you will receive a complimentary ticket to the ACA exhibition, awards ceremony and Gala on Saturday, November 18th (valued at $150).
