The first exhibition of the year, “Artists of the Winding Road A-Z,” runs Jan. 20 to April 15, 2018. It showcases the works of 12 Appalachian Ohio artists who, through innovative work in media ranging from cloth and clay to bottle caps and asphalt, are raising an artful Appalachia and, in the process, helping to redefine the economy of Ohio’s Appalachian region.

Co-curated by David Mitzel, director of Appalachian Hills of Ohio Territory, and Zanesville-based painter Michael Seiler, this exhibition features works by artists from Athens, Muskingum and Perry Counties. Those areas of Ohio were once mined for natural resources but have recently become known for artistic riches that are catalyzing economic revival.

“The (region’s) economy had been basically an economy of extraction- whether it be coal or oil or gas or timber. So instead of extraction, we’re looking for attraction- we want people to come here, we want people to stay here, we want people to live here,” Mitzel said.

The unique exhibition will feature works of more than 10 artists from the region.
