Tom Zubek Art: Railroad Spikes, Leather, Wood, and Spider Webs

On Tuesday evening, August 20, artist Tom Zubek will share his unusual artwork with the Geauga Arts Network Group (GANG). Host for the evening will be Doby Green. This educational program, which is free and open to the general public, will take place from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at Heinen’s Cafe, 402 Center Street in Chardon, Ohio. No reservations are necessary.

Zubek’s art work includes sculptural pieces incorporating railroad spikes which have leather and wood pieces with forms and patterns burned into them using an electrically heated pencil; and works incorporating real spider webs. He is also an expert on the airplane nose art that was used to decorate and sometimes convey messages on World War II aircraft. An active pilot, who has owned a number of airplanes over the years, he is a flying enthusiast whose childhood interest in model airplanes generated a lifelong passion for aviation.

A popular artist at the annual Covered Bridge Festival held in Windsor Mills, Ohio, Zubek currently has exhibits of his work in the Amish Store on Youngstown Road and in the Orwell Public Library.

The Geauga Arts Network Group is an ad hoc group whose mission is to promote communication, collaboration, and cooperation across artistic disciplines for artists living and/or working in Geauga County. For further information, contact Joanne Durante, 440-729-6481.
