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

I am a fiber artist interested in the emotions and histories that exist inside of domestic objects. Blending secondhand objects with experimental handiwork techniques, I create highly tactile works to facilitate questions about the power of shared identity and community in a world that is increasingly hyper individualistic and anti-social. My works explore an alternative world where community is found inside the stitches of a quilt, or the warmth of polyester fur; in the echoes of the many hands that have pinned and tucked their soul into the textiles that envelop and support us every day.
