Meet artist Jim Weaver and his best friend, Annie! Our final PAA Member Spotlight for the month of February goes to Jim, who has been exhibiting his unique pieces in Paseo art shows since 2014. When he is not busy teaching Annie how to drive, Jim creates works on tooled leather that express environmental and social themes.
His piece The Neonicotinoid Spring pays homage to Rachel Carson’s 1962 book, Silent Spring, which was the first to raise the dangers of indiscriminate pesticide use. Jim’s work will be displayed at the Annual PAA Members’ Show in the Paseo Art Space, which runs until Saturday, February 24!
