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, ''Spotlight: Military Women Artists 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.
