Featured Artist:

Susan Hoerth is a Wisconsin native who lives in McAllen. A nomad by nature, she collects bits and pieces from her travels around the world and assembles them into a fine art collection of curios. Susan has a keen eye for vintage items, and uses them to retell stories of the past, breathing new life into history. Her pieces reflect the discarded and forgotten ordinary moments in everyday life. Most recently, Susan has ventured into exploring discarded books as her medium of choice. Browse her collections online at http://www.etsy.com/people/Raidersofthelostart
