ZANESVILLE, Ohio – The Appalachian Hills of Ohio Territory, and the Zanesville Appalachian Arts Project are excited for the fifth annual Foot by Foot this month.
Local artists from Athens to Zanesville, some of them nationally renowned artists, use all types of different media on a foot by foot canvas. AHOOT Director, David Mitzel said it really shows the artists creativity, and it is a great event to hold here in the community.
“People who are known nationally will do these little foot by foot things and what it does is, it brings artists together, it gives them a sense of community. It gives them an opportunity to receive some award money and it gives people who value art but may not have huge wallets to come in and they can get a work of art,” said Mitzel.
Z.A.A.P Director, Rosemary Ludt said this is a great event for the Z.A.A.P to have, and they go on display from tomorrow till September 28th, and you can visit the gallery from one till five Thursday through Sunday. Ludt said seeing the creativity of some of the artists is amazing.
“Well, a lot of people get very creative with one foot by one foot and I have seen in the past woven baskets, ceramic projects, wood projects, as well as painting and all different media,” said Ludt.
Both Ludt and Mitzel said a trip to see the foot by foot canvases are well worth the visit to Z.A.A.P. You can see them tomorrow at the First Friday Art Walk.
