The Zanesville Applachian Arts Project is featuring Susan Stubbins, a retired art educator in the Zanesville City School district who has continued her passion for the arts in her own studio in downtown Zanesville.
"I do mostly collage, mixed media artwork. I work with acrylics, watercolor and papers. A lot of them are handmade or hand decorated by myself," said Stubbins.
Stubbins also donated some of her artwork to Z.A.A.P's annual auction that starts this Friday ay 8:30 p.m. She is active in the first Friday art walks and helps plan the Y-Bridge Arts Festival coming up in August.
"There will be an opening on Sunday from 1-5 p.m. with my work and the Z.A.A.P. artists. The way they do that is one side of the gallery is dedicated to the featured artist of the month. I have 17 pieces that are newly framed and ready to go that people haven't really seen before so I'm excited about that."
You can view Stubbins' art collection Thursday through Sunday's for the entire month of May at Z.A.A.P.'s studios at 625 Main St.
