ZIG ZAG Gallery is proud to continue over 35 years of history featuring contemporary American craft in the Dayton community. Our long standing goal
is to offer you creative, whimsical and affordable selections with a primary
emphasis on "Made in America".
Our story began in the Oregon District as Fifth St Gallery which was founded
by Tim Patterson. The next chapter included a move to Centerville when we
became Woodbourne Gallery. While Kim Megginson joined this creative endeavor
in 1990, she and her husband, Brad Abbey, were excited for the opportunity to become owners of this legacy in 2003. The change in ownership resulted in the
birth of ZIG ZAG Gallery.
What is the definition of ZIG ZAG? “A course of sharp turns in alternating directions”…that certainly sums up our history as well as the ever changing selection that we feature. Stop in and see what’s new!
Our ZIG ZAG Family
Kim & Brad
Kim is our fearless leader who travels to various shows throughout the year to find exciting new work to tempt you. Her husband Brad is her silent partner and moral support... and has also been known to keep us stocked in chocolate.
Our French speaking, animal loving, energizer bunny brightens any day at ZIG ZAG! She has a generous spirit and loves sharing the fascinating stories about many of our artists... with maybe a cat or teenager story thrown in just for fun!
We first met Christine as one of our models from Noble Circle and love her creative streak whether it’s creating journals from recycled materials or accessorizing our newest arrivals.
A calligrapher when she’s not at ZIG ZAG (and the most crazy snow obsessed person we know), with Fran’s quiet, quick wit there is never a dull moment!
As a retired teacher from the Dayton Public Schools, Julie expresses her own creativity with a wonderfully unique style. As a crochet artist you may have seen her work at the 2nd St. Market.
Having been a part of our quirky little family since 2011, Kathryn is a creative, big hearted Mom who brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise of all things ZIG ZAG!
Kim’s mom and our favorite special event girl. As a very spunky 89 years young, Mary Jean is an amazing example of living life to the fullest!
Our website designer, clothing model and inventory guru, Rebecca’s detail oriented personality has been a great addition to our group.
