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.
Artist Sam Charboneau claims the spot for this week’s Member Spotlight! Sam composites multiple photographs together to create work that transports the viewer to strange and unusual places. Her piece, The Exposed, is part of a ten piece series and features a sloth that is handcrafted with wire, foam, paint and fur. Sam explains that her work “explores the journey of finding oneself while searching for a true place to belong.”
This week’s Member Spotlight goes to artist Bryan Dahlvang! When asked what he loved most about the Paseo, Bryan said it had to be the “unique, inspirational zone of creativity” one can find every month with such a wide variety of art and artists. Whether he's painting, drawing or mixing things up with found objects like sticks, bones and orange peels, his work is distinct and unique. No wonder he has been exhibiting his evocative pieces in Paseo art shows since 2006!
