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.

Cynthia received a Bachelors of Science from the Ohio State University with a degree in Industrial Design, Visual Communications. Though spending many years in the architectural world has helped her notice details, her primary form of expression is the impressionist style and she enjoys painting en plein aire. She considers herself to be a realist painter and enjoys working on landscapes and botanicals. Animals figure prominently in her work and she visits local and state fairs for inspiration. She works primarily from her own photography, and enjoys capturing the personality of her subjects in her paintings. Acrylics are her first choice of painting medium but she also enjoys working in watercolor, mixed media and drawing in pen and ink.

Artist Statement

Artist Cynthia Bryden has enjoyed moderate success with pieces being accepted into both regionally and nationally juried shows. She enjoys painting in extremes, miniatures under 6 square inches as well as 3 foot flowers. She is currently exploring the use of recycled and found objects to create mixed media pieces in both 2-D & 3-D. Her favorite materials are mylar balloons and aluminum candy wrappers. Their shinny surface reflects the light and adds movement to the piece. She is currently working on a series, Build, Destroy, Recover?, that is incorporating mixed media elements and exploring the impact of humans on the environment. Not all of it is bad and some is beautiful while destructive. Her second series is a more traditional approach of exploring state and local parks . These images are meant to share the gems around us and where to find them in Ohio.
