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.

As an idealistic dreamer, art is both an escape and the way I reach out to others. Leonardo Davinci once said that “Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt, and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen.” I concur.

Photo of Anne Katrine Senstad

Anne Katrine Senstad was raised in Singapore and Norway, today she lives and works between New York and Oslo, Norway. She received her art education at Parsons School of Design and The New School for Social Research in New York 1994 and 1999. Senstad’s practice lies in the multi disciplinary intersections of installation art, photography, video, neon sculpture, immersive installation, landart and site specificity, with a focus on the phenomena of perception and the cognitive system in response to the properties of light, sound and color. Senstad is concerned with sensorial aesthetics, perception and the transformative, – the transcendental ideas of art and philosophical practices. Through advanced in depth research she has examined spatial, topological and scientific phenomena of light, sound and color since the mid 1990’s, a foundation for her explorations in the experiential, participatory and experimental. In her ongoing field work, she engages in cultural, social and political interactions through active, organic and personal involvement for a wider educational and collaborative platform between diverse ideologies, developing a new folklore and amalgamation between post-modern individualism and internationalism. Senstad created the central public art work for The Wolfe Center for the Arts at BGSU in Bowling Green, OH that opened in 2010, and designed by Snohetta Architects.
