This exhibition is the third in a series of four Riffe Gallery exhibitions that will celebrate Ohio’s diverse and talented artists as part of the YEAR OF THE ARTIST, July 2001-July 2002. Curated by Dominique Vasseur of the Springfield Museum of Art, Shared Inspiration features 14 Ohio artists who have participated in the Ohio Arts Council's Arts in Education Artist in Residence Program, which offers residencies in schools and arts institutions throughout the state. These artists serve as role models for students, providing them with guidance and inspiration so they can know the wonder of creating a work of art.

Featured artists include Deborah Brod, Juliellen Byrne, Stephen Fessler, Steven Finke, Susan M. Gallagher, Rob Gartzka, Kathy Johnson, Kate Sturman Gorman, Deborah Griffing, Patty Mitchell, Deborah Pinter, Angelica Pozo, Diane Stemper, and Joan Tallan.
