CUSHING — Jim Bazin of Thomaston shows photographs and mixed media paintings for Arts in the Barn on Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 14 and 15, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., with an opening reception Friday, Sept. 13, from 5 to 7 p.m. Refreshments will be served.

Bazin is best known in Maine for his design and photography for Maine Food & Lifestyle magazine. He co-founded the magazine in 2005, and served as the creative director and principal photographer for the publication. More than 1,600 of Bazin’s images have been published in various print and digital media to date, including the photography for best selling author and sword boat captain Linda Greenlaw’s recent cookbook, "The Maine Summers Cookbook."

Initially self-taught in photography, Bazin 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, Conn. 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. Bazin has been represented in numerous galleries and shows throughout the United States.

His recent work, based on observations in nature, includes wildlife action, abstract impressions of nature, and mixed media imagery. The images displayed at his Arts In The Barn solo show are from a cross section of his various bodies of work.

Arts in the Barn is hosted by Cushing Historical Society at 17 Hathorne Point Rd.
