Artists have a chance to be honored for their hard work and be able to advance in their craft.

Applications are being accepted for the Ronna Bucci and Dr. Charles Dietz Art Endowment Fund 2012 Artist’s Award. Each fall the fund awards $500 to practicing artists in Muskingum County.

"Most of the artists are not extremely well to do as far as having funds available for their projects, for materials for conferences and exhibitions things of that nature so the winning recipient is able to use that $500 however they see fit to advance their art," said Terry Kopchak.

A selection committee that consists of members of the Bucci family as well as practicing artists in the area will decide the winner.

"The artist’s award itself will be presented during the First Friday event of November which this year falls on November the 2nd and that will be awarded at 7 p.m.. at the ZAAP Gallery," said Kopchak.

Completed applications must be submitted to the Muskingum County Community Foundation by Monday October 15th. Applications can be picked up at the Community Foundation at 534 Putnam Avenue or on their website
