Current Percent for Art Program and Call for Entry Announcements

Commission Announcement  and Call for Entry Application Process:

The Ohio Percent for Art and OAC Individual Artist Programs use an online process for applying to open commission announcements and program calls for entry: 

1. Create a login using your email address and password using this link: http://apps.oac.ohio.gov/Programsx/IndividualArtist/IndividualArtistLogon.asp.

2. Your login will be approved by OAC staff (if you've already created a login previously, or applied to another commission announcement or call for entry use the "returning call for entry artist" box.)

3.  Once your login has been approved, log into the system and create your profile information and your discipline information (if you are also an Ohio Online Artist Registry Artist your profile information will transfer for you) .

4.  Hit "save". After you hit "save" the commission announcement or call for entry title will appear.  Click on the title of the project.  By clicking on the title you have begun the application process for the commission announcement or call for entry. Please note your application number at the top of the screen.  You will need this when you are labeling your images that you are emailing.

5.  Answer the two questions "is your indoor, outdoor or both?" and if you are sending images via email to Kathy Signorino at the OAC. 

6.  Once you hit "save" a red hyperlink that says "create new image"  will appear in the lower right-hand corner.  Click on the hyperlink.  You will add the order number, title, dimensions and media for the first image that you are emailing.  You will do this process for all images you are submitting for this commission announcement or call for entry (please refer to the commission announcement or call for entry details for the correct number of images accepted per opportunity.)

7.  We do NOT have image upload capability.  You will have to email your images after the online process is complete.  Specifications for the size and labeling of the images are included in the commission announcement or call for entry details. For commission announcements you will also send a resume and artist statement.

2018 Artists' Spotlight: Works by Ohio's Military Women at the Ohio Governor's Residence
The Ohio Arts Council (OAC) is seeking women artists who are serving or have served in the military and who currently live in Ohio. Artists who work in painting, drawing, mixed media, and sculpture are eligible to participate in this exhibition which will specifically feature the works by women artists who are serving or have served in the armed forces.

This exhibition is part of a larger ongoing program, ''Spotlight: Featured Artists at the Ohio Governor's Residence,'' which was developed by Ohio's First Lady Karen W. Kasich in collaboration with the OAC. This special exhibition, ''2018 Artists' Spotlight: Works by Ohio's Military Women at the Ohio Governor's Residence'' celebrates works created by women veterans and current service members while helping to support and recognize their artistic accomplishments and their service in the military. The ''Spotlight'' program was created by Mrs. Kasich to promote and support the arts in Ohio in a meaningful way, as well as to feature the Governor's Residence as a gallery for Ohio artists and a destination for tourists. The program also seeks to increase public awareness for the Ohio Governor's Residence and Heritage Garden.
