Every month, Z.A.A.P. celebrates a different artist and for July, the board is honoring eight new members of the art community. The artists featured specialize in mixed media, photography, word-working, oils, acrylic and water color paintings.
"It's quite a variety from a lot of new people that maybe the community hasn't seen yet this year," said Gary Graham, a member of Z.A.A.P.'s Art Gallery.
You'll be able to view the July artists artwork at the Z.A.A.P. Art Gallery in downtown Zanesville for the entire month. Also, the first Friday art walk of the month will start Friday and Graham invites the community to join him and the rest of Zanesville's art community.
"We will have some refreshments and the doors will be open at 5:00 p.m. They'll be able to come through and enjoy the new art work and then, a lot of the older members like myself have work up and so we represent those that have been here for a number of years."
The first Friday art walk goes until 8 p.m. Friday evening.
