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.

Artist Statement

I enjoy creating art for the public environment. The process is stimulating, and rewarding. Each project is different, presenting new thematic and spatial opportunities. I enjoy the collaborative process. Having artwork placed in a public venue is very exciting in that it becomes an important element of the entire project. Knowing that a broad spectrum of people will interact with the work on a daily basis over a long period of time is a vital consideration in the design and execution of my work. I strive for work that is immediately accessible while at the same time layered with more complex subtleties. This allows the work to be intuitively and non-verbally accessible while revealing deeper levels of discovery over repeated viewings. The fact that each project is different inspires me to continually test new concepts, materials and techniques. It is very rewarding to have the opportunity to share my work and experiences with the community.
