The Ohio Arts Council (OAC), the Columbus Metropolitan Library and the Friends of the Library are joining together again to present the eighth annual Ohio Online Visual Artist Registry (OOVAR) exhibition.

OOVAR is an online database that showcases the work of more than 1,200 artists from around the world.

The juried show will be on display at the Main Library in the Carnegie Gallery through Jan. 11, 2014.

The exhibition will highlight the original art work created by Ohio artists who are participants of the OOVAR. The artwork was selected through a blind jury process.

An award of $1,000 will be given for Juror's Choice and an award of $500 will be presented for People's Choice. The People's Choice award is selected by visitors to the exhibition and library patrons.

Ballots are available at the Carnegie Gallery. The awards will be presented at a closing reception on Saturday, Jan. 11, 2014 from 2-3:30 p.m. in the Carnegie Gallery.
