On the first Friday of every month, Zanesville Appalachian Arts Project showcase works of talented local artists.

ZAAP’s Director Crystal Fuller said she’s wants to see more young artists get involved.

“ZAAP is a program to introduce an artist to the community. Say a young artist just getting out of college has a small body of work, but not enough to open their own studio yet. It gives them a place to show their work so the community knows what kind of work they’re doing. First Friday is January 1st from 5-8 p.m. downtown. We like to invite everybody to come out enjoy the lights downtown, free entertainment, and snacks and all the beautiful art work,” said Fuller.

Fuller said joining ZAAP is a great way to get your creative juices flowing.

“Just to foster creativity at our young people. When I was a young person there just was nowhere for us to show our work. We learn from each other, we learn by doing. We share ideas here among the artists.It stimulates the creative process. It makes smarter children when they have opportunity to be creative,” said Fuller.
