PAINTINGS BY OHIO ARTISTS

Columbus Pen and Pencil Club 3 FROM THE COLLECTIONS OF THE OHIO HISTORICAL SOCIETY


"Paintings by Ohio Artists" consists of two parts and a bibliography. The first part is the exhibit itself, with each painting displayed individually. The second part consists of descriptive and supplementary text and images for each of the artists represented. The viewer can begin with either, or by combining the two, as the exhibit is accessible from the text and vice versa.

There are ten Ohio artists represented in this exhibition. The artists and the works selected are meant to feature the holdings of the Ohio Historical Society painting and photograph collections and are not meant as a comprehensive list of Ohio artists or paintings. The bibliography on Ohio painting that accompanies this exhibit is not limited, however, to the holdings of the Ohio Historical Society.

For additional information on these paintings, or any owned by the Ohio Historical Society, contact the Ohio Historical Society, History Collections Department by telephone at 614-298-2052, or email at kfeinknopf@ohiohistory.org.
