FAQ for Artists
A subsidiary of Art Design Consultants (ADC Fine Art), Blink Art is a multi-media promotional platform that assists artists with gaining large scale, targeted exposure to the nation’s art sourcing professionals through print, digital, and gallery partnerships.
ADC Fine Art, a group of experienced art consultants specializing in corporate, healthcare, hospitality and residential projects, created Blink Art Resource out of necessity. We needed a constant stream of art by professional artists for new projects but had nowhere to find them. So the best designer sourcebook for art, Blink Art Resource, was born.
Blink Art Resource is quickly becoming the go-to resource for professional buyers. Why? The sourcebook saves professional art buyers time from sourcing artwork from multiple venues, by providing them an annual curated guide for finding a client and/or site-specific works of art. It’s a one-stop catalog of professional artists from all around the nation that have been hand selected to guarantee it is a collection of the most talented and professional artists available.
We’ve had great success involving Blink Art artists in current and upcoming projects! Over 2000 works of art have been sourced since the first edition in 2015. From the print publication, online representation and through shows, Blink artists are sourced for projects by our extensive list of art specifiers daily.

We accept all major credit cards, PayPal, and even checks, and offer financing plans at no additional fee. There are multiple payment plan options depending on the promotional package and time of registration.
