Suzanne Zahr, Mercer Island Architect and General Contractor, invited her personal & professional community to celebrate the one year (paper!) anniversary of her design/build firm and art gallery on Thursday, April 6th. Over the last year, the SZ Art Gallery has featured the work of thirteen local and international artists, helped re-launch the first Thursday Mercer Island Art Walk, and hosted events for community organizations such as MICA, SJCC, FASPS, Art With Heart, and Washington State Senator Lisa Wellman’s election campaign.
SZ has also kept busy working on homes, apartments, retail spaces, and corporate interiors, often handling the full lifecycle from design through construction (not to mention the creation of Business Plans, Style Guides, and Marketing Strategies).
The event was catered by one such lifecycle client, Caruccio’s, which will open its culinary event center in August of 2017.
Thank you for joining the SZ Team, featured Artists, Donatella Lombardini, Laurent Bourscheidt & Joe Iano, along with Lisa Caruccio to celebrate all things creative!
