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.
Jim Bauer grew up on the family farm working with the wheat, cattle and sheep. He found release from the repetitive daily tasks in the creativity of drawing designs, painting and making art projects. Jim says he started doing metal art about 10 years ago. “After retiring from farming full time and doing some seasonal jobs with Fish and Wildlife, I can now spend time welding and fabricating art pieces - some metal and some resin paintings.”
