For the past 13 years Chaz has worked at the Ohio State Fair Fine Arts Exhibition, having starting his affiliation with the program as an Intern while a student at Otterbein. He currently serves as the Assistant Director. The Fine Arts Exhibition is one of the largest juried shows in the state, with over 1,500 entries annually and over $20,000 in Awards given, while matching that dollar amount in sales annually.
