June 2013: "In Motion" - A photographic project by Harry Abernathy and Lucy Brown of Aberown Studio
First Fridays Art Walk: June 7 @ 5:00 – 7:00 p.m.
Stop by the BPA Gallery in June for “In motion” an ongoing photographic project by Harry Abernathy and Lucy Brown of Aberown Studio, focusing on dancers and fabrics. Some years ago Harry Abernathy and Lucy Brown began investigating the visual possibilities present when dancers and fabrics began to move in concert with each other. Unchoreographed and serendipitous, the images from this project began to form a body of visual art work. View more of Aberown Studio’s work online.
May 2013: "Light, Glass, and Crows" - Oil on Canvas by Kent Holloway
First Fridays Art Walk: May 3 @ 5:00 – 7:00 p.m.
Stop by the BPA Gallery in May for "Light, Glass, and Crows," an exhibit of oil on canvas by Kent Holloway. Kent’s recent works in oils cover a variety of subject matter - some loose impressionistic works, and some more refined, but all exploring the play of light on a range of surfaces. He’s been particularly interested in the brush strokes, and the impasto or smooth applications needed to create the illusion of different surfaces ranging from flower petals, to glass, and clouds. Studying the surfaces of his subject matter, he imagines the brush strokes and paint texture he’ll apply to the canvas, saying, “This prepares my vision before I pick up the brush.”
APRIL 2013: "Refined Raw" - Mixed Media by Amos Staffler Edwards
by the BPA Gallery this April for “Refined Raw,” an exhibit of abstract
paintings by Amos Staffler Edwards. Refined raw is a mixed-medium process
created on Bainbridge Island, and this collection features
elements reminiscent of encaustic and glass work, oil, and watercolor. The
nuanced combination of color, texture, and depth of focus encourages viewers to
travel off the path of the linear and meander the realm of the visceral…through
time and the collective unconscious where words can't reach. The pieces are
living and will subtly patina over time, becoming richer with age and bearing
witness to our lives. For more information and to view more of the artist’s
work, visit online.
