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.
For more information, contact Kathy Signorino, artist programs director, at or 614-728-6140.

Barry Gunderson lives in Gambier, Ohio, where he has taught sculpture at Kenyon College since 1974. He retired from teaching in 2015 but has not retired from his studio work. Interpretations of water, contorted figures with peculiar thought bubbles, sculptural architecture based on Northern English row houses, French Gardens, and just “Useless Metal Objects” have kept him busy in the studio. Recent work – figures that have been invaded by birds and a series of heads that show what keeps us awake at night. In each series he is trying to capture the essence of these forms, some recognizable, some not, by giving each piece a visual impact, a sense of humor, or a spark that sets them apart from their sources. In addition to studio work he has completed several Ohio Percent for Art public art projects.
