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.

I’m Monica Vega! I am a professional artist and founder of Gallery 18 LLC.

Gallery 18 specializes in acrylic visual art created designs, and representational portraiture. Gallery 18 collaborates with local entrepreneurs and community platforms to enhance awareness.

As an artist I started exhibiting in 2002. I’ve had the opportunity and privilege to showcase at markets, restaurants, upscale lounges, New York City, and in traditional art galleries as well.

In 2017 I decided to create an art platform that came from life experience. My desire was to create a company that people could relate to. 

Though I have kept the tradition of art history within my own personal art style and business.

One of my great passions is to get all people involved with art from every level. Achieving this would, ensure that any medium of artwork would gain proper respect within our local, regional, and national communities.
