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 kathy.signorino@oac.ohio.gov or 614-728-6140.

Bio

Angela Mascolino, Watercolor Artist

Mascolino’s watercolor paintings are primarily inspired by the unique shapes and textures that nature offers. She usually begins by taking several photographs of a location or subject, drawing the composition and choosing a limited palette. The artist states that she “seeks to create impressions of the environment and enjoys working with the luminous, fluid characteristics that watercolor offers.”

Mascolino earned an art education degree from West Liberty University in 1998. After graduation, she moved to Cincinnati and it didn’t take long for this city to become her home. She’s a K-8 art teacher at St. Andrew-St. Elizabeth Ann Seton School in Milford, Ohio (1998 to present). Teaching is a very meaningful part of her life and she’s grateful for the opportunity to encourage and educate her students.

When she’s not in her classroom, Mascolino can usually be found in her home studio. She finds that while she’s creating art, she’s able to focus and lose herself in the creative process. Watercolor has been her favorite medium since taking classes from artist Lee Fritch in the mid 90’s and she’s continuing to learn and experiment with the medium.

Mascolino also finds that daily life and travel greatly influence her art. The artist and her husband, Mark, enjoy exploring various cities, museums and National Parks.

Mascolino graduated from West Liberty University in 1998 with a bachelor’s degree in Visual Art Education (K-12)

Her art has been in group shows at the Kennedy Heights Art Center and she’s a member of the Collective (since 2012).

She’s also had the pleasure of showing in group exhibitions in the former One One Gallery (2012, 2013) and the now C-Link Gallery (since 2015) and was a member of Cincy Art Link.
