Masonic Temple Room 226

Char and I returned to Millersport for a few days of intense business work. Exhausted from the drive we stayed happy and pressed forward even knowing Sunday we’d do it again.

In a crazy turn of events my friend Elizabeth and I have joined forces and paid rent on a space that will showcase our art and poetry in Zanesville, Ohio at the Masonic Temple building. The building houses creatives and entrepreneurs and is the central location of the art walk. Zanesville is my home town and the art scene in it continues to grow and flourish. We chatted over doing it months ago but all the rooms were full. I have shared a wall a few times with others but never committed to my own space. Always wanted to do it. I threw myself into some other projects when it didn’t look like it was going to happen. Probably too busy already but…

it’s a good thing! I have been making art every day for months so it will just be the work of framing and getting it ready.

Today we decided to paint it bright white and start our adventure of turning it into a space where Elizabeth can share her words and I can cheer you with some color. Shout out to my niece Kendra and her boyfriend Rick for helping us paint the aged white off of the walls.
