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 kathy.signorino@oac.ohio.gov or 614-728-6140 or Katie Davis, artist programs coordinator, at katie.davis@oac.ohio.gov or 614-728-4421.

Artist Statement

As a lifelong outdoorist and 14 time artist-in-residence for the National Park Service and Bureau of Land Management I’ve spent years living alone and photographing in over 120 of America’s parks and forests. My work highlights not only the beauty of these landscapes but also the environmental challenges they face. Currently my equipment includes a wide assortment of modern Sony professional cameras and vintage wooden large format film cameras. “Instead of seeking out subjects that catch my eye I first ask permission of Nature to photograph and then listen quietly to the land. In time, something begins to whisper quietly for my attention or touches my heart in ways my eyes alone would never have seen. When this occurs, I often discover that the camera has already made the photograph.” Above all else, my work is guided by a deep reverence and respect for Nature, patience awaiting the perfect moment, and long exposures often ranging from many minutes to hours to create these unique images that honor Nature’s beauty and spirit. When not on the road photographing, my wife and I divide our time between Clearwater, Florida and Columbus, Ohio. My personal interests include reading, kayaking, hiking and educating others about photography and America’s national lands through workshops and public talks. A few places where Rick’s work can be found:

  • Smithsonian National Museum
  • Various US Embassies around the world
  • National Park Service Permanent Collection
  • The Nature Conservancy of Arizona
  • Bureau of Land Management National Museum
  • Endangered Landscapes Traveling Art Exhibition
  • Leepa-Rattner Museum of Art, Florida
  • Swaner EcoCenter, Utah

And in hundreds of other homes, offices and museums.
