200+ pieces have been hung and put on display.  All work has been labeled and awards were noted on many great works this year.  The 40th Annual FOCUS Show is ready to be viewed!

We hope you will join us for the Awards Ceremony at 5pm on Thursday, November 15th at 5pm in the Little Theatre at the Toledo Museum of Art and then to the CVA Gallery for our Opening Reception where you can meet many of the artists who have made the 40th edition of the show one of the best ever!

New Show AFTER Focus

A Huge thanks to American Frame for their support of Focus and for offering to host a Juror's Award Winner Show at their Maumee Showroom!  The dates of the show are:

January 4 through the 25th

OPENING RECEPTION is on Thursday the 10th from 5:30-7pm


We will take the work over directly from the Focus Show for the students. Those who wish to upgrade their frames for this show may contact American Frame and there will be time between shows to get them swapped and readied for this first-time event.

This year we went totally digital in submission for FOCUS.  It has been a game changer for organization and publication and the next step would be to allow anyone with the link to access the folder that has all winning pieces contained in a place where you can access and enjoy before and after the show!

Here is the link to use:


We hope you enjoy the 2018 Edition of the FOCUS Show!
