The Ohio Annual Exhibition, held at the Zanesville Museum of Art, has promoted and presented an exciting range of artistic vision for decades.

Originally known as the May Show, The 70th Ohio Annual will showcase many of the state's finest artists beginning Oct. 10.

Ohio is home to talented artists from every walk of life, each producing work unique to his or her environment and background.

This diversity was captured in the artists' submissions, and likewise reflected in juror Edward Pauley’s selection. Pauley, who has directed multiple art museums, is currently the director of Ohio University’s Kennedy Museum of Art. He holds an M.F.A. in painting from Ohio University and has broad experience jurying exhibitions.

The Ohio Annual opens to a member preview from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 10, and to the public on Saturday, Oct. 11. A reception will be held on Saturday from 2-4 p.m. with awards announced at 3 p.m.
