Jim  MarshSONORA – Retired Lincoln Unified School District teacher Jim Marsh has been named a 2013 Artist in the Woods for the Stanislaus National Forest.

That means that fans of Marsh and his multimedia creations will have a chance to join in the fun on Sept. 14 when Marsh holds a workshop in Hermit Valley on Highway 4 east of Bear Valley.

The honor was announced Thursday by Stanislaus National Forest Supervisor Susan Skalski. As a result, Marsh will stay in a cabin in the Calaveras Ranger District for two weeks through mid-September.

During that time, he is asked to create an original piece of work representative of his stay and to conduct a public workshop. Marsh is a musician, sketch artist, photographer and multimedia designer. He is also a member of an acoustic trio, Mom’s Chili Boys.

Marsh is known for his public art creations. In 2011, he and a team of students crafted larger-than-life fish sculptures that were part of the Stockton Steelhead Festival.
