Make the Markay A Stop on Your Apple Festival Tour

We’ve got a great crop of all local artworks in the Markay’s Gallery right through the last day of Apple Festival. When you come to Jackson to visit this annual event that engulfs our downtown streets, please take time to stop into the Markay and marvel at all the talented folks who live in these fine southern Ohio hills.

The Exhibition is open right now. So stop by 269 East Main Street while the parking is easy. Our regular Gallery hours are Wednesday through Fridays from Noon to 5 p.m. and weekends from 1 to 3 p.m. There is no admission charge and the space is handicapped accessible.

During Apple Festival, the Gallery will be open extended hours. On Tuesday, September 16, the Gallery will be open from 3 to 7:30 p.m. Through Saturday, September 20, it will be open from Noon to 5 p.m. Bring your friends. Check out the progress in the Auditorium and show off our local artists.


Among those artists attending the Opening Reception were, from the left:
Alana Billman, Naomi Worthington, Carol Blamer, Rhonda Baker, Juanita Clark,
Sandra Wilkin, Kit Dailey, Molly Markley, Julia Rice, John Markley,
Jill Jarrell Downard, Emma Grace Wiley, Jill Neff, Dorothy Hazelrigg, Shaun Gentry,
Phyllis Michael, Georgi Miller, Paul Brown, Kathy Miller,
Bob Eisnaugle, Vivian Bevins, Brandina Molt, Deborah Lloyd, Joan Shasteen,

Jill Neff’s nimble fingers knit this lacy shawl in mohair.


Take a trip into “Vintage Jackson” with Sandra Wilkin’s shadowbox
featuring some local merchants from days gone by.

Fall means football. Brian Lintala captured last season’s Ironmen team
pouring onto the field and ready to do battle.

Jackson High School Senior Molly Markley mastered the art of origami at an early age.
Now she creates her own patterns. This is entitled “Mi Amore.”


Jim and Carol Click work as a team. He cuts and assembles the wooden pieces
of an intarsia and she does the painting. Together they’ve made quite a striking wolf.
