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

As an artist, Joe Pearce focuses on Expressionism, Symbolism, and Outsider Art.  Using his spiritual and emotional instincts, he paints what he feels more than what he sees. His paintings are intuitive, speaking about what might be rather than what is. He does realize, however, that people relate to physical images that they know. Therefore, fairly representational images appear in his paintings on a regular basis.

When painting, Joe enjoys working in layers. He enjoys achieving diversity through the use of soft and hard edges, thick and thin paint, complementary colors, contrasts, glazing and dry brushing.  At the end of the day, he is a colorist.   

 Joe’s mission is to share beauty, depth, meaning, and happiness with those who get to know his pieces of art.

 Joe also writes and has published an autobiography, “The Art of my Life”.
