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.

C.J. Jackson and her 103 years old aunt, Marvel Ferguson, deliver a fictional novel full of local Ohio history, Hunting Wildflowers.  The team began writing when Marvel was 98 with publication arriving after her 103rd birthday.  Hunting Wildflowers follows love letters from a time period crucial to American History, the Great Depression. These letters, written between two people in the Goshen/Loveland area of Greater Cincinnati, expose the hard facts of rural life in that time.  Their story brings that time period to life while focusing as well on the modern day struggles of a younger woman, and the wisdom of the aging aunt.  Together, they weave a passage through time uncovering love, lust, greed and jealousy to pave the way.

Marvel and Jeanette are descendants of the Rich Family, a First Family of Hamilton County.  The First Families Of Hamilton County is the lineage society open to descendants of early pioneers who were born or resided in Hamilton County before 1821.  Jeanette is also a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution.
