Barbara Rores

As an aspiring artist, I received my formal art training at the Philadelphia Museum School and at the University of Buffalo. I work in oil paints and colored pencils. As a resident of Western New York, I was very active in many art societies. I was an organizer of the River Walk Arts Festival of Tonawanda, New York. I was juried into the National Women’s Art exhibit and received many awards while a member of Fine Arts League of Buffalo and the Williamsville Art Society. Since moving to Columbus, Ohio I have placed third in the fall 2008 art show and won the People’s Choice Award at the Worthington Area Art League of Worthington, Ohio. I have also placed 2nd at WAAL in the Fall of 2010..In 2009 Fall I had an Honorable Mention award.

Christina Gamble

I have been a watercolor artist for over thirty years. While studying at the Ohio State University to become a nurse, I took several fine arts classes. Since then I have studied watercolor with many well-known artists. My paintings have appeared in several exhibitions in Central Ohio, and I have received awards in several shows. One of my paintings is permanently on display in the lobby of The Ohio State University College of Nursing. I like using watercolors with a lot of pigment saturation in order to create intense, vibrant colors and depth. The inspiration behind the majority of my work comes from scenes from my travels. I strive to make my work a representation of nature and the beauty of color. My style is realism, however on occasion: I have painted in a more impressionistic style, emphasizing color over detail. For more information, including size and price of each piece, I can be reached at

Crayons and clay collection. It amazes me how things can come full circle in one's life. In 5th grade I won top award for a picture I made using drops of melted crayons to portray a large sunflower. It was on display in an art show in Madison Wisconsin. I never forgot about that award over the years, so I started playing around with crayons and came up with a three-dimensional art using melted crayon as background, polymer clay for the scene then an acrylic cover overlay. The lesson I'm learning is, it is never too late to play with crayons, or, be creative and find new uses for old things.

Jeanie Auseon

Jeanie was a “kid” artist, ceaselessly entertained by the creativity and problem-solving inherent in art-making. In addition to earning undergraduate and masters degrees in Education from Truman State University, and a Ph.D in Art Education from the Ohio State University, formal studies in Interior Design, Landscape Architecture, Industrial Design, and Surface Design inform her art-making. When she “came home” to the joy of personal art-making, she began experimenting with liquid media, forms of resist, and unorthodox print-making. She currently works with mixed media on 2-D surfaces, such as stretched canvas, wood panel, and mylar. Her works hang in public collections such as the Springfield, Ohio Regional Medical Center, Short North Hilton Hotel, Greater Columbus Convention Center, the Corporate Headquarters for PNC Banks, Louisville, Kentucky, and private collections across the US.

Jerry Smith

I've been an artist virtually all my life. I began to make a living at it as an apprentice sketch artist for a local sign company at the age of 18. From the beginning art has been exciting to me. It is like a puzzle. the pieces, color, light, concept and narrative. Putting it all together brings a profound sense of personal satisfaction. While in the sign business, I developed Graphic and Architectural concepts for local and national accounts, including another Columbus Original, Wendy's Old Fashioned Hamburgers. My fine arts career began in the late 80's when I discovered watercolor. I've since exhibited and received awards in numerous juried shows throughout Ohio. I am active in several arts organizations and am a past president of the Central Ohio Watercolor Society. I now work and accept commissions in watercolor, acrylic, and pen & Ink illustration.

Judith Bellasari

I’ve always been interested in art, the use of space, the interplay of shapes and the effects of color and light. I began photography early and won a contest and a Brownie camera at age ten. As a teacher of French and Russian, I frequently traveled to Europe both on my own and leading groups of students and adults, taking photographs wherever we went. I enjoy capturing views that others might miss, views that delight me and give a flavor of the surrounding culture. Now retired, I have been able to expand my travel and explore other continents. My photographs are in private and corporate collections in Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, Colorado, New York and Florida.

Judy Anderson

I am a painter focused on color and design. My art world is orchestrated on shapes and value, aiming for “what if” rather than reality. The buildings may accordion down a hill. The vase of flowers or person in the chair may be fractured. A former illustrator, I now want you to see the world through my eyes. Welcome to Judyland.

Richard Clem

Richard has been painting with focus since 1992. From an early age he has had a love of expressing himself through his art. Even in the U.S. Air Force, he had an outlet for his creative side, working several years as a graphic artist. After he was discharged, he enrolled at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh where he received his degree in commercial art. During the preceding years Rich has pursued his career in advertising. He continued developing his appreciation of fine art through reading and traveling to local and national exhibits. Richard has developed an impressionist expressive style. His pictures have a luminous quality created from initial glazed layers that he allows to show through beside broken strokes of impasto. Often choosing landscapes, he creates harmony with colors inspired by nature's hues.

Sally Molnar

I am Sally Molnar, a watercolor artist. I started taking drawing and watercolor painting classes at Whetstone Recreation Center in the early eighties. I was in the ceramic clay classes at that time and wanted to do more decorative work on my ceramic pieces. I have also taken classes at the Cultural Arts Center. After many classes I felt I was not making any progress and stopped painting. In 1995, I started taking watercolor painting classes at the Franklin Park Conservatory with Chris Curry and I haven’t stopped painting. I like being creative with my watercolor paintings. I also like the way paint flows when mixed with water. There are always interesting results. In September 2001 I went to South France for 2 weeks with a group of 17 women artists to paint the countryside. This was a wonderful experience which I will always remember. I also create greeting cards, T-shirts, and sweatshirts from my paintings. Contact Sally Molnar by email:

Sherry Mullett

Sherry earned a BFA in art from Kent State University, and taught high school art prior to earning a Ph.D. in Education administration at the University of Virginia. After returning to Ohio to work in community education, she opened a studio and resumed painting, while taking classes at the Columbus College of Art and Design. Her award-winning work has been included in numerous local, regional, and state, juried and curated art shows. Sherry's current work is focused on the landscape as dynamic and changing, not static and stable. Changes can be monumental, inescapable, and command our attention, as in a natural or human-made catastrophe; or, can occur slowly, quietly, and go unnoticed by us, like the disappearance of an animal or plant species. The only certainty is that our physical landscape never is the same from one moment to the next. For more information, or to arrange a studio visit, contact Sherry at:

Steve Carmean

I worked in the graphic arts field in Columbus, Ohio for 30 years. First on offset printing presses, then branching out into typography, camera and lithographic stripping. I earned a degree in Graphic Communications Management. As technology changed I returned to school to learn computer graphics. In early 2017 I discovered oil painting. Originally impacted by the paintings of Edward Hopper my influences grew as I explored more painters. I have studied with artists Joe Lombardo and Sarah Sedwick. My goal is to develop a body of work in a recognizable and engaging style. I believe my graphic arts background is evident in my painting style, thereby helping to define my artistic fingerprint.

Vivian Ripley

Vivian is an accomplished artist of quite varied subject matter; but inherent in all her works is the beauty of color and how it is affected by light and shade. She works in pastel, watercolor, acrylic, and colored pencil--always striving to achieve beauty in each medium through her emotional use of color and tone. Vivian has been professionally active in group and individual shows since 1975. She regularly teaches pastel, portraiture, colored pencil, and is also in demand for demonstrations and workshops in these disciplines as well as in watercolor. Of particular interest is painting on location. The excitement and involvement with the moment is particularly rewarding. "The whole body, and its senses, is involved with nature because of the urgency to depict an increasingly changing scene," says Vivian. Contact the Artist, Vivian Ripley, at 614-451-6254 for prices.
