April BPA Gallery: “All the World’s a Stage”
First Friday Art Walk: Friday, April 3 @ 5:00 - 7:00 p.m.; Exhibit runs throughout April
Join us in the BPA Gallery for a special artist reception and a fun evening of art, food, and friends. Kim Scott-Olson exhibits her remarkable collection of arresting photographs from Shakespeare productions on Bainbridge Island, 2012 – 2014. The “behind the scene roles” of directors, choreographers, costume designers, stage managers, light and sound technicians, family, and friends are just as essential as the courage it takes to perform. The team effort involved in any production is what makes each moment Kim captures on any stage a sweet miracle. In essence, Kim’s art is that of seeing, revealing, and preserving glimpses of the collective magic created by others.
