The Ohio Artist Registry (OAR) is an exciting opportunity for artists to share their work, connect with the creative community, and establish an online presence—all on a free, virtual platform! The OAR encourages artists working in all art forms, throughout Ohio and beyond, to create a profile, which allows them to better promote themselves and their work. Being listed in the OAR provides artists with new opportunities to share their work with clients, galleries, patrons, and audiences. For more information, contact Kathy Signorino, artist programs director, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 614-728-6140.
Kari Gunter-Seymour’s award winning photography has been published nationally in The Sun Magazine, Light Journal, Looking at Appalachia, Storm Cellar Quarterly, Anthology of Appalachian Writers, Vine Leaves Journal and Appalachian Review. She is a 9th generation Appalachian. Her work is firmly and unapologetically attached to her home soil, and is an examination of the long-lasting effects of stereotype and false narratives surrounding Appalachians.

I’m an artist and designer living in a treehouse in Appalachia. Throughout my career, there has been an easy flow of ideas and techniques between my architectural and exhibit design work and my more personal art making. I now make what I call Demon Heads out of paper, first modeling the heads in the computer, then flattening the shapes into patterns which I cut out of paper and assemble edge-to-edge.
