Artist Jim Bazin’s new exhibition on display at Pope Memorial Humane Society

We are pleased to announce the newest exhibition of artwork is now being displayed on the Art Wall in the lobby of Pope Memorial Humane Society. The current show, featuring pieces by Jim Bazin, will be on display and available for purchase through the middle of August.

Jim is best known in Maine for his photography in Maine Food & Lifestyle magazine. He co-founded the magazine in 2006, and served as the creative director, and principal photographer for the publication. More than 1,600 of Jim’s images have been published in various print and digital media to date.

Initially self-taught in photography, Jim polished his darkroom skills while in Europe, and later furthered his study of the zone system and darkroom methodology with legendary photographer Paul Caponigro at his workshops in Bethel, CT. Years later, he transitioned to the world of digital photography, taking a series of workshops with renown visual artist John Paul Caponigro at his studio in Cushing, ME.

Jim has been represented by galleries and shows in ME, MA, CT, NY, CA, and NJ. The images displayed here are from a cross-section of his various bodies of work. Jim’s recent work, based on observations in nature, include wildlife action, abstract impressions of nature, and mixed media imagery.

Pope Memorial Humane Society is devoted to caring for and placing unwanted and abandoned animals in loving homes; promoting responsible pet ownership and humane treatment of all animals.

Pope Memorial Humane Society was founded in 1989 in response to the needs of homeless animals – their protection, care and adoption. Money was raised to purchase the land between Dexter Street Extension and Buttermilk Lane in Thomaston, Maine. With generous support of many animal lovers, and a substantial mortgage, the shelter was built and opened in November 1991. Since that day thousands of animals have been lovingly tended, rehabilitated and adopted.  Volunteers and members of PMHS are from every community – students, retirees, artists and businesses.

The following towns contract with the Pope Memorial Humane Society of Knox County:  Rockland, Thomaston, Warren, Owls Head, St. George, Port Clyde, Martinsville & Tenants Harbor; So. Thomaston, Spruce Head, Union, Cushing, Matinicus, North Haven, and Vinalhaven, Stockton Springs, and Morrill.
