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.

Dre McLeod is a contemporary fiber artist based in Ohio. She earned her BFA in Fashion Design from the Savannah College of Art and Design in 2008, where her passion for fiber arts first took root.
With a distinctive artistic voice, Dre’s work has been shown at galleries in West Virginia, Ohio, and California. Her thought-provoking pieces have garnered attention and earned her a growing community of collectors throughout the United States.
Combining her love for repurposed, vintage, and rescued textiles with influences from historical art movements, Dre’s artwork redefines the boundaries of traditional quilting. Through her intricate appliqué and textile compositions, she explores themes of self reflection and human connection. Continuously evolving her practice, Dre pushes the boundaries of fiber art, expanding its possibilities as a medium.
