Marietta tie to old frames

Tresures in the attic

Question: I purchased a box of art frames at a Marietta auction along with a print that was signed in pencil by an artist with only the last name of Sturgill, and from what I've read, it may have been created by Susan Sturgill of Ohio. On the back of the frame it reads, "The Bobbit Hole Art Studio Framing & Matting, 709 Fifth St., Marietta, Ohio, 45750, telephone (614) 373-8879." I have asked several longtime residents of Marietta if they have ever heard of this art studio and no one was able to answer my question. Can you possibly tell me when this art studio operated in Marietta and the approximate age of the print, and its value? - L.P., Marietta.
