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.

My name is Jean Frantz, and I am an Impressionist. I love working in all mediums, but my favorite is pastel. Inspired by the beauty I see everywhere, and by artists such as Mary Cassatt (1844-1926), Edgar Degas (1834-1917), the French Impressionists of the 19th century, Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890), and countless others; I paint.
