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. A listing in the OAR does not confer an endorsement, approval, or verification by the Ohio Arts Council.

Photo of Judith Judith Effa FORD

Art has tightly held my heart since childhood and ultimately became a spiritual journey of learning to trust my inner voice.  My art making is always evolving, intuitive, soul nourishing and FUN.   My personal Mantra “ Look for Joy and Listen for Guidance” is embedded in my art practice.  My pieces are full of color and spirit, whether figurative or abstract.  I continue to learn and push myself  to create art that can inspire and uplift..  I am open to serendipity and chance both in art and life and trust that the unexpected can lead to amazing things.

For me the most exciting painting is the painting I haven’t yet made, those problems I haven’t yet solved. Making paintings, is a difficult proposition and I know that one really never learns how to paint. For me, each painting is a mistake, asking a question that points toward the possibility of the next painting. What I want for my paintings is that painting on the other side of Rembrandt’s easel, the one that has not been revealed. Almost four centuries his painting still asks questions about painting and the future of painting. The painting unseen. I want that!

David Jarred

Creative Director

 David has worked on film productions including award winning films like Carol, Judas and The Black Messiah, and action blockbusters like The Avengers and Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Working on these productions David learned how to build specialized rigs for cameras and lighting. These skills have come in handy for our art practice as they boil down to how to make special equipment move safely and how to install heavy items. He brought this knowledge to Golden Brown along with management, production, and technical skills.
