When we view the submitted artwork we are always looking for an interesting idea, a voice, a moment, technical prowess, etc., but we are also interested in helping young, less established artists have faith in their talent. The secret to “doing what you love” or “never working a day in your life” is to believe in yourself, have faith in your dreams, keep working hard and never give up.

It is no small task to whittle down hundreds of pieces entered to fewer then 70, and it is very difficult to omit some pieces. But we believe this collection is a group of both talented professionals who’ve “stuck it out” and can help inspire the younger artist and promising up-and-comers we hope to watch grow over the coming years.

Through our unique efforts, AGC has stayed committed to the renewable print medium just as these artists have stayed committed to their creative talent. The 11th publication of 52 Weeks 52 Works seeks to showcase two local assets: Northeast Ohio’s dynamic creative community and the myriad of marketing and print related services AGC provides to over 150 local businesses, non profit organizations and educational institutions.

We believe these commitments have the potential to make a difference in people’s lives.

We hope you enjoy the 11th edition of 52 Weeks 52 Works.

Thank you. Candice C. Champion
