Jim uses a pastels and colored pencils to create soft dreamlike images of both nature and the abstract.

Artist Statement: I create art primarily as a means of meditation. A function of that process: when asked “what is that?”, an answer is not often apparent to me. The meaning of each is in the eye of the observer. I can say that I create abstract works that, I believe, reflect the intrigue and beauty of the natural world in its’ many forms. Water, stones, soil, plants, emotions, passions, and light figure prominently. Enjoy these and see what you wish to see.

This opening is part of Friday 2 on Vinton. Jim Martin’s work will be on display in the gallery through Saturday, September 24th, Tuesdays-Sundays 11:00 AM-7:00 PM.
