Smart Bets: Suzanne Joy Teune

Asheville-based artist Suzanne Joy Teune has been accepted into the Master’s in Art Therapy program at Southwestern College in Santa Fe, N.M., and will begin studies this fall. But before she departs, she’ll have one final local solo show, Love Letter to Appalachia, in the Stand Gallery in the Phil Mechanic Studios. “The Phil has been like a solid container for me and my artistic unfolding in the world over these past two years,” Teune says. “I love the creative family I’ve found there. I love how much it feels like a natural extension of art school in so many ways.” The opening event takes place Saturday, Aug. 4, 6-9 p.m., and Teune’s paintings will be on display throughout the month. Free to attend. Photo of the artist with “You Are the Whole Circle,” courtesy of Teune
