The mission of the Zanesville Appalachian Arts Project (Z.A.A.P.) is to unite artists/crafts persons and connect them to the community. Z.A.A.P. is a non-profit organization of artists and arts advocates interested in cultivating and supporting the artists and arts of southeastern Ohio by offering the opportunity to meet, network, exhibit and participate in the aesthetic development of their neighborhoods.
The Z.A.A.P. Gallery is located on 625 Main Street in the downtown district of Zanesville. It is situated among antique stores and other various businesses. Every month there is a new art show of the Z.A.A.P. membership, where visitors can view and even purchase some of the fine art works on display. Artistically, Zanesville has a lot to offer in a myriad of mediums, from watercolors and sketches to sculptures and music and everything in between. For those looking for a one-of-a-kind original, the Z.A.A.P. Gallery is an excellent choice and a must see visit.
