Jim Schomaker’s Featured Artist exhibit focuses on capturing Bush’s Pasture Park’s roses through photography. Bush’s Pasture Park is home to Salem’s Municipal Rose Garden. It was originally a collection of hybrid tea and floribunda roses dating from the late 1950s when the garden was first planted. Today, both collections are undergoing extensive rehabilitation under the partnership of Mission Street Parks Conservancy (formerly Friends of Bush Gardens) and City of Salem Parks and Recreation. “I wanted to show two things; roses start to atrophy and lose their health, withering with the onset of winter, and they still try hard to bloom and show character and dignity despite the hard times they’re dealing with,” says Jim.
This exhibition is sponsored by Hoots, Baker & Wiley, PC.
Salem Art Association exhibitions are always free and open to the public. Gallery hours are Tuesday-Friday from 10 am-5 pm, and Saturday-Sunday from Noon-5 pm.
