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 email@example.com or 614-728-6140.

Dayton Ohio’s Mike Bankhead is an artist’s artist in every sense of the word. While most know him as a bass player and songwriter, Bankhead has unlimited reach and talent. All of this is wrapped up in a man whose raw passion for the art bleeds through everything Mike Bankhead does. Humble enough the Ohio artist has experience writing music for full band compositions, guitar rock, and multilingual accompaniments.…

I work with clay, bronze, and mixed media. Some of my work has its roots in ancient cultures, in which natural atmospheric forces are often personified as gods and goddesses. For example, in ancient Greece, times of day, heavenly bodies, and the earth were embodied in mythical persona. My pieces speak of the beauty and flow of the natural world, and they reflect my concern for and love of the earth.
In my novels, The Race is Not Given (1999) and Rendered Invisible: Stories of Blacks & Whites, Love & Death (2010), and other works, I examine racism, racial reconciliation, resilience, and hope. I have published scholarship on Black literature, film, and pop culture. I am a playwright and poet. I am working on children’s literature featuring Black heroism. My work is rooted in my faith and my working-class background.

I grew up in Dayton, flew with the USAF and retired to Dayton where I pursue landscape photography. I chase sunsets/twilights. I also create images using Evidence-based design (EBD) principles. EBD is an approach where researchers realized that people feel relaxed, heal faster, and become more productive when surrounded by certain calming images of nature. I hope these vibrant prints bring you a few moments of peace and solitude.
Primarily I am a landscape photographer, though I love including people in my work enjoying the natural world around them, as well as street photography when I am in new or exciting locations. I also enjoy night photography, so I try to find places where light pollution is minimal to better bring out the majesty of the night sky.…
