The Expo offers a unique opportunity for patrons to browse and purchase fine works of art from some of Ohio’s most respected dealers and galleries. This is the only expo of its kind in the region and the only place where such diversified offerings can be found. All of the participating galleries and dealers have placed art with major museums in addition to private and corporate collections. All exhibitors will bring a selection showcasing their best works. These offerings include a cross section of historic, regional, international and contemporary paintings, drawings, original prints, photography, fiber art and sculpture.
