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. For more information, contact Kathy Signorino, artist programs director, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 614-728-6140.

Priscilla’s work moves in two directions. Her textile sculptures explore relationships between the form of the body, the context of cloth and clothing, and larger issues such as the things we carry through life. The other direction is Priscilla’s work is two dimensional, abstract and land based. An avid hiker and nature lover, these experiences as well as the love formal interactions and the interest in expression through action drive her paintings and prints.
