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.

The disruption of climate change, man-made disasters, and the evolution of technology on our (and as our) landscape has been the driving force of my creative research for several years. Citing art historical roots from the Hudson River School to Land Arts, I examine the interrelationship of landscape, environment, and technology. Primarily working with multimedia installation, I use video and light projected through glass objects and kinetic sculptures to create immersive, moving shadow-drawings. Activated/implicated by the viewer’s own shadows, the ‘shadow drawings’ distort and amplify scale and space and distill a sense of the transient. These juxtapositions raise questions of history, labor and technology as well as the environment in which they exist.
