The Columbus Metropolitan Library, the Ohio Arts Council and the Friends of the Library are once again partnering to bring arts opportunities to artists and the public by presenting a juried art show at the Columbus Metropolitan Library's Main Library. 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 Ohio and around the world.
The Sixth Annual Ohio Online Visual Artist Registry Juried Art Show will feature original works of art by Ohio artists. Work will be selected through a blind jury process of distinguished art professionals, which includes a representative from the Columbus Metropolitan Library, the Friends of the Library and a professional juror.
The artwork will be displayed at the Columbus Metropolitan Main Library in the Carnegie Gallery from November 5, 2011 - January 8, 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. People's Choice Award ballots will be accepted through November 26, 2011. The cash awards are provided by the Friends of the Library.
The juried show is open to all living Ohio artists 18 years of age or older. Entrants must be registered in the Ohio Online Visual Artist Registry at www.ohioonlinearts.org. There is no entry fee. Up to three images may be submitted on CD. Work must be original and created within the past three years. Deadline to apply is Friday, August 26, 2011. Additional requirements apply.
