Thirteenth Floor Gallery Opening in Canton

Thirteenth Floor Gallery
by Brit Charek


On Thursday, December 6th during the Light Up Downtown festivities, Thirteenth Floor Gallery and Bizaare Boutique will officially open the doors to their new location in the Canton Arts District. (RSVP to the event on Facebook by clicking here!) Though the Grand Opening is on Thursday, the celebration will spill into Canton's famous First Friday the following day.
Thirteenth Floor is an art gallery focusing on the focusing on the bizarre and macabre. The one man operation run by Billy Ludwig hosts various themed and featured artist events with live music and performance artists. Ludwig is an artist (as well as a musician) in his own right, producing work under the name Impale Design
Thirteenth Floor originally opened July of 2010 when Billy Ludwig converted his band's rehearsal space in Massillon into an art gallery.

The work of Thirteenth Floor owner and operator, Billy Ludwig (Impale Design)

After going through several different ideas for the gallery name, 'Thirteenth Floor' seemed to make the most sense as Ludwig wanted everything in the gallery to be original, unique and one of a kind. 
"As you rarely will see a 13th floor in a building, you will rarely find what the gallery has anywhere else," he explains. 
The name "Thirteenth Floor" was also the title of a song written by Ludwig's band, Ludwyg. The song was lost along with a nearly completed full album when Ludwig's hard drive crashed. Hopefully the gallery doesn't follow suit.
Erin Mulligan will be resident artist at the new location. Though Mulligan's work resembles the surreal slightly uncomfortable feeling often provided by Ludwig's own work, it is unique. Though her work is modern, she was trained in the age old oil paint technique of glazing. Her mission is to capture life as a whole: the beautiful and the grotesque. To learn more about Erin and see her work, check out her website: http://www.erinmulliganart.com/index

For those Massillon-ites nervous about Thirteenth Floor picking up and leaving town, don't fret. 
"Just because Thirteenth Floor doesn't have a physical address in town doesn't mean we won't have a presence," Ludwig assures his loyal fans. It also doesn't mean he'll stop throwing fabulous events like last summer's circus-themed 'Eerie Street Sideshow.'
Thirteenth Floor Gallery will be located at 310 4th St. NW in Canton. For more information, check out their website or like them on Facebook.

  2. "Dear DOCTOR, your product is by far the best plan for treating fibroid naturally...the practical step by step instructions and the detailed information regarding the real cause and how to treat uterine fibroid were a real eye opener. I started dr medication after intense bleeding and pain which occurred during one of my rehearsals (I am a professional violinist)".

    I was later that week diagnosed with 2 medium sized fibroid which placed an enormous pressure on my bladder. I was advised by 3 different doctors to undergo surgery to remove these fibroid as I was told that there was nothing I could do to shrink or stop their growth. Luckily, I ran into Doctor from Africa by accident as I was searching for information on the net regarding my condition. I was so relieved to have found that surgery was not always the answer, that it can be dangerous and that uterine fibroid can return even after surgical intervention. In less than 4 weeks of taking Doctor herbal medicine portion and following his instruction, both of my fibroid had shrunk by 100% and the second ultrasound taken 7 weeks after I began taking dr medication, had shown that both of these were completely gone. I also my periods became regular. and now my wife is three months old pregnant, contact him today on his email address on and get free from your health problems, always remember sound health matters a lot and the Life is too short for you to loose it. Here is my email if you have any question to ask and my phone number is 1 302-583-2195 and doctor email address is for advice and for his product

    Thanks Doctor and my family and I are forever grateful for what the Lord has use you to help my wife

  5. An amazing testimony on a Native Iya Hindi root and herbs who help me to get pregnant, So me and my partner have been trying for a baby for the last 2 years now. I don’t have a regular cycle so it is hard for me to tell when I’m ovulating or not, but we always have sex at least 3 times a week, sometimes more. I know it can take up to a year to conceive but everyone i know who have had a baby have conceived within 2-3months of trying and it is really getting to me. my partner had a fertility test about a year ago and his sperm were fine. I’m thinking it could be a problem with me but I’ve never had any symptoms of any problems. My partner does smoke and have the occasional drink, and i used to smoke and also have the occasional drink. i know i’m slightly overweight but that shouldn’t affect our chances too much, one faithful day my friend told me to contact Native Iya Hindi that help her sister, then i contact the email. hindinative@yahoo.com,He sent the Herbs to me and gave instruction on method after three weeks the doctor confirm that i am pregnant thank you Native Iya Hindi for helping me get a baby, I am thankful for all he had done. contact him via email:(hindinative@yahoo.com .Or whats App number+19145295224), if you are trying to get a baby.
