Since 1968, the Cincinnati Art Club has annually hosted the ViewPoint Exhibition. ViewPoint originated as an open juried art show to display the diversity of work created within the Greater Cincinnati arts community. Since then, the show has expanded to encompass works submitted from across the country and from many artists outside the United States. It is the longest continuous annual open juried art exhibit in the Southwestern Ohio area.
Originally held in the Cincinnati Art Club’s own Herman & Bessie Wessel Gallery, it is now displayed in one of the many outstanding commercial galleries in the Cincinnati area. Emphasis has and continues to be on showcasing the highest quality of work, regardless of the school or classification of art. All media are welcomed, with entries in oils, watercolor, acrylics, sculpture, pastel, drawing, prints, collage and mixed media.
Entry is open to all artists 18 years of age and older. Only totally original work conceived and executed by the entrant is accepted. All artwork is for sale. A distinguished five-juror panel makes selections for the show from submitted digital images. The Awards Judge determines the Best of Show, 2nd Place, 3rd Place, Honorable Mention and other Awards of Merit. Selections are based upon the review of the works presented in the gallery by the Awards Judge.
