BPA Gallery First Fridays Art Walk June 6: “Further Instructions from the Ochre Room”

BPA Gallery First Fridays Art Walk: “Further Instructions from the Ochre Room”
Acrylic on canvas by Michael Pontieri
Friday, June 6 @ 5:00 – 7:00 p.m.
@ Bainbridge Performing Arts (BPA)

Bainbridge Performing Arts is pleased to display the work of Michael Pontieri in the BPA Gallery this June. Pontieri describes his work as “paintings from a caveman with a camera and a set of Time Life art books.” He employs a variety of styles, sometimes as a jolt to remind viewers that they’re looking at a painting, sometimes as a reminder to himself that the people he depicts are multifaceted, and sometimes to visit the past, review his own history, or to try on different eras.

Join us in the BPA Gallery for the First Fridays Art Walk May 2 from 5:00 – 7:00 p.m. for a special artist reception and a fun evening of art, food, and friends. Gallery hours throughout the month are 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. Tuesday – Friday plus one hour prior to each performance. Admission is free at BPA, 200 Madison Avenue North, Bainbridge Island.

The BPA Gallery showcases regional artists in monthly rotating exhibits in the C. Keith Birkenfeld Lobby and participates in the First Fridays Art Walk nearly all year. Contact Dominique Cantwell at 206.842.4560 with gallery inquiries.
