Taking Care of Business!!

By Susan Stubbins

July 5th Art Walk was so much fun at The Art Loft. Kristi Somers was there with her ceramics. Her beautiful pottery will be on display until the end of the month.  We are open weekday afternoons. (I was able to get some early Christmas shopping done).

We are also here until 6:30 on Wednesday to support the Farmers Market held on 4th Street, also a good time shop and visit.

I want to thank Mr. Joe who brought two added guitarist and a following of people to hear great music.

August First Friday will be along the river for the 11th annual Y-Bridge Arts Festival. It is hard for me to believe it has been 11 years.

I’m working on the awards again this year. RoseMary Ludt has helped as co-chair, Becky Joseph and Nikki Slack have also pitched in. Anne Cornell, The Artistic Director of the Pomerene Center for the Arts in Coshocton, is our judge.

Friday night August 2, awards include:

The Best of Show: sponsored by Muskingum County Community Foundation.

First Place: Sponsored by Dr. and Mrs. Ann Parker.

Second Place: Sponsored by Mike Nelson Frames and Flames.

Third Place: Sponsor ArtCoz, The Artist Colony of Zanesville.

Thee Honorable Mentions Sponsored by ArtCoz.

Saturday the People’s Choice Sponsored by Zanesville Pottery and Carol Castor in memory of Carol Spragg and the Linda Regula Community Artist Award sponsored by ArtCoz will be announced.

I won’t have a booth this year but will definitely be around the Welcome Tent on Friday.

The Zanesville Museum of Art has an amazing lineup of art activities for children.
