"Art Local" Art Show Presented By ArtsConnect™

ArtsConnect brings the community together with a two-day celebration of the arts. The Centennial Barn, located at 110 Compton Road, will hold a gallery of artwork from residents of the community and surrounding neighborhoods. Artwork from long-time Springfield Township resident, nationally known artist, Charley Harper will also be on display - making this event even more unique and exciting.

The art show will kick off on Friday, November 9th with an evening artist reception. A wine tasting, light appetizers, live music, silent auction, raffle and a "People's Choice" award will fill the evening and give neighbors a chance to mingle and enjoy the art. There will be artistic performances and information available on classes for you to further your creative side. ArtsConnect will provide an update on plans for the future and we will celebrate the artists who have their work on display. Most of the artworks will be available for sale.

The gallery will reopen on Saturday from 10:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.  for art lovers to take a closer look and enjoy the art at their leisure.

Call To Artists:


I am an artist:

Have you ever wanted to show your artistic talent, but have been too intimidated to try? We want to take that fear away by inviting all artists in the community to show up to three pieces of art in the ArtLocal art show. This is a non-jurried show that will celebrate art in all levels of ability. Your art will be on display for two days and you may sell your work.

Submitting Art to ArtLocal:

When registering, artists will first need to set up an ArtsConnect Account. Second, click on "Register Here".  Artists will need to know what they plan to show, the medium used and the selling price, if applicable. These questions will be asked at the checkout. We ask that you then follow up with sending the photos of your work to artsinfo@springfieldtwp.org.

Artwork is not required to be on sale. All sales will be handled by ArtsConnect and paid to the artist in full. - A 4% fee will be retained by ArtsConnect for credit card transactions. ArtsConnect does not collect a commission from sold works. A donation to the silent auction is greatly appreciated.

Categories of art include: original clay or porcelain ceramics, digital art, drawing, fiber, glass, jewelry, metal works, mixed media, painting, photography, print making, sculpture and wood. All art should be prepared, ready to hang. Unframed drawings, prints or photographs (etc.) can not be accepted. If any artwork is deemed inappropriate for a child, we will NOT display it. Please submit a photo of your artwork to www.artsinfo@springfieldtwp.org after you have registered.

The entry fee for artists registering before October 1 is $25. After October 1st, the fee will be $30

. No submissions will be accepted after November 1. The fees collected support advertising the event and offset the costs associated with the program. Artists may submit up to 3 original works under their entry fee. The entry fee and a photograph of the art should be mailed or delivered to the Springfield Township Administration office at 9150 Winton Road, Cincinnati OH 45231.


Artwork should be delivered to the Centennial Barn Wednesday, November 7 between the hours of  10am - 3pm. We will take every effort to ensure the safety of the art submitted. We do require artists to sign a hold harmless agreement. Any unsold artwork will need to be picked on November 10 between the hours of 2:00 - 4:00 p.m.


I understand that the Springfield Township Arts and Enrichment Council will only generally supervise the location in which submitted artwork is displayed and that no security or personnel will be provided to particularly safeguard the artwork submitted. I understand that there is a possibility that the artwork I submit may be damaged or stolen during this event, and I hereby voluntarily release and hold harmless The Springfield Township Arts and Enrichment Council, Springfield Township, The Mill Creek Arts Connection, Centennial Barn, and the officers, employees, agents, and volunteers of each of them from any and all liability for any damage to, or loss of, any of my accepted artwork, whether such damage or loss is foreseeable or unforeseeable.
