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.

Judy Trautman

Founding Chair MultiFaith Council of NW Ohio


Judy Lee Trautman has done art since she could hold a crayon.  Since 2019, it has been a near daily respite from intensive nonprofit work. Professionally, she was a classroom educator for over 40 years, first as a high school French teacher, and then as a part-time technology mentor.  She co-founded the MultiFaith Council of NW Ohio in 2003 with her late husband Woody Trautman. She is ordained to lead Services of Universal Worship and occasionally leads services at First Unitarian Church of Toledo. She recently published a chapter on Universal Sufism in “A Rainbow for the World”, by Rev. Dr. Steve Albert.  She has published an article on a student leadership program and a couple of poems.  She has written other poetry and a small series of children’s books. Judy’s visual art includes, drawing, watercolor, alcohol ink art, and acrylics.  She is passionate about creating art, particularly during the pandemic.  She has been posting art on Facebook and friends are urging her to sell.  Although she has sold several paintings recently, she is uncertain about making art a business.
