    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 artist’s reception is First Friday, September 6, from 5 to 8 pm. The exhibits continue through it 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.”

    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 intrigues by the fine details of flora and fauna working with macro lens close-ups . Yet, she captures landscapes as well.
