Ginny BaughmanVisual Arts, Drawing, Painting, Sculpture, Chalk, & Fiber
Ginny Baughman was born and raised in Dayton, Ohio. In 1981 she received a BFA from the University of Dayton and in 2004 received an MA in art education from the Ohio State University, where her master’s thesis topic was on drawing. She has also attended a variety of professional workshops, seminars, and conferences including the Kennedy Center’s National Seminar for Teaching Artists in Washington, D.C.
Ginny has been a teaching artist for more than 20 years. She has taught art in a variety of different venues in Central Ohio and now in her current hometown near Dayton. She began her art career by selling prints of her drawings and paintings in her hometown of Westerville, then Worthington, and has now been a freelance artist for more than 25 years. Ginny has recently moved back to the Dayton area, where she is getting involved in exhibits and artist residencies.
About 10 years ago, Ginny sifted her focus to contemporary art, and for her, contemporary artwork is content, not media-based, because she uses a variety of media. This includes, but is not limited to, 3D paintings, paper sculptures, found object sculptures, installations, and chalk art. Many of Ginny’s artworks have been accepted into exhibitions both locally and nationally and have been featured in newspaper articles about the exhibitions. Ginny has also received five Community Artist Grants from the Greater Columbus Arts Council.
Ginny has participated in more than 20 chalk art events throughout Ohio. Today, she creates both traditional and contemporary artwork. She loves creating artwork that gets people thinking about important issues as well as creating traditional artworks of familiar places. Ginny says that being a split personality artist gives her and her students versatility to explore lots of different types of art.
