Scott Zbryk pushes the boundaries with his three-dimensional drawings

You can find art all over town -- not just on gallery walls. In this series, we'll be looking at some of the local artists who serve up their work in coffeehouses and other non-gallery businesses around town.

"I went back to college at the young age of fifty and got my BFA from Metro State in 2008," says Evergreen-based architect-turned-artist and teacher Scott Zbryk (you, like his students, can call him Mr. Z). It wasn't easy landing a full-time teaching gig in 2008 because of the downtrodden economy, so Zbryk started substituting in Jefferson County Public Schools -- and that's actually worked out quite well, since the flexible teaching schedule gives him time to focus on art when not teaching budding artists how to not only think outside the box, but turn the damn thing upside down and inside out!
