For September, Avenue West Gallery presents the sculpture and paintings of featured member artist Jim Bauer as well as the photography of guest artist Debora Schilling. The artists' reception is First Friday, September 6, from 5 to 8 pm. The exhibits continue through the end of the month.
Debora Schilling never considered herself an artist. She says: “I don’t draw, I don’t paint, I don’t have a medium to identify with. That is until I have a camera in my hand”. But after meeting her husband, photographer Pat Schilling, she focused seriously on her photography with his encouragement and tutoring and now feels she can finally say, “I am an artist”.
Debora is intrigued by the fine details of flora and fauna, working with macro lens close-ups . Yet, she captures landscapes as well.
