The Exhibit Opening for Jim Reimer on Wed, Feb 8 was full of family, friends and art lovers. Past board chair Frances Funk opened the event with a welcome, and Jim Reimer shared some thoughts about his journey as a photographer – with some interesting and humorous stories about different photos he has taken, even taking the time to poke some fun at close friends. This was the first exhibit opening I have been able to attend since I started working at the Arts Council. The Exhibit Committee did a wonderful job of greeting guests, replenishing refreshments and making everyone feel welcome. To note: some of Jim Reimer’s photographs are for sale – and these are some of his best pieces in a 45-year career. Read his biography online at under the Hall Gallery Exhibits link. His exhibit will be up until March 2, so I recommend stopping by! is Steinbach's only source for community news and information such as weather and classifieds.
