ZANESVILLE, Ohio- For two days you could find the 11th annual Y-Bridge Arts Festival in Zanesville.

The festival had 75 tents set up with artists from from six different states, and from cities both near and far. Y-Bridge Arts Festival Director, Bob Grayson, said you could find every type of art you could think of at the event.

“From fiber art, sculptures, to wood art, to three dimensional bases, to oil paintings, pastels, photography, little bit of everything”, said Grayson. 23:08:29 “We have a young students art show on display, it was sponsored by the Community Foundation. And then secondly we also have an art tent that the Zanesville Museum of Art has put together”, added Grayson.

The event will ran today until dark, and Saturday, August 3rd, from 11 a.m. until dark at Zanes Landing Park

Grayson said, “We know that this event is one of the largest events in Southeast Ohio and in Zanesville”. Grayson also added, “10 years from now I want it to be in a greater, a bigger, place than just this. We started out on the Y-Bridge as confining as that is. We wanted to be bigger and better. Also we want to expand the types of work: poetry, dance, all those things we want to add to it”.

Besides just art, you could also find music, food trucks, and beer at the event, perfect for those of all ages.
