Meet Featured Artists, Sue Zola & Evād!
Zola & Evād's artwork is on display now until September 5 at our South Lamar location and again November 6-January 8 at our Round Rock location.
Zola is originally from New Haven, CT where she became a prominent local musician. As she grew progressively more tired of the cold weather in the Northeast, Zola packed up her pick up truck and her two cats and headed toward Austin one day in October of 1999. Having a music teacher for a mother and being a musician herself, it's easy to understand why Zola was drawn toward the Music Capital of the World.
Upon arriving in Austin, Zola got a job at...
...wait for it...
...the original Kerbey Lane Cafe!
As a night-shift manager at our Central location on Kerbey Lane, she began making glitter art in 2000 as a way to unwind during the early morning hours after her shift had ended. Zola's unlikely inspiration was a glitter picture frame she stumbled upon while perusing the aisles at Goodwill, and the rest is history! Her first art show was at Kerbey Lane in 2001.
