James Edward Scherbarth was a dear friend, colleague, and teacher, and artist who developed profound and personal ways of working in just a few years following his retirement in his mid-60s. Today we share our interview with Jim near the end of his life in which he discusses his life, work, and teaching philosophy. Jim passed away a few days aftert this recording, on June 22, 2021. We are very honored to have had this opportunity to hear what he wished to share with our listeners.
