"I first saw Tim Doebler's art about 13 or 14 years ago during an art exhibit at the U of I Pritchard Gallery. I was taking art classes at U of I, and his art, for me, was mesmerizing. I was amazed by the scale of his work, the originality of his ideas, and the new interpretation of bronze, blending abstract and real forms. Life has come full circle, and now he is having an exhibit in my gallery."
- Nelson Duran
