The Ohio Arts Council is once again partnering with the Columbus Metropolitan Library and Friends of the Library to present the Seventh Annual Ohio Online Visual Artist Registry Juried Art Show. The three organizations have collaborated for more than a decade on the Ohio Online Visual Artist Registry (OOVAR), a database that showcases the work of more than 1,200 artists from around the world.
The OOVAR show will feature original works of art by Ohio artists. Work will be selected through a blind jury process of distinguished art professionals, including a representative from the Columbus Metropolitan Library, Friends of the Library and a professional juror.
The artwork will be displayed at the Main Library in the Carnegie Gallery from November 10 - December 29, 2012. An award of $1,000 will be given for Juror's Choice and an award of $500 will be presented for People's Choice. The People's Choice award is selected by visitors to the exhibition and library patrons. The awards are provided by the Friends of the Library.
The Seventh Annual Ohio Online Visual Artists Registry Juried Art Show is open to all living Ohio artists 18 years of age or older. Entrants must be registered on the Ohio Online Visual Artist Registry at www.ohioonlinearts.org. There is no entry fee. Up to three images may be submitted on CD.
