Call for Artists for the BPA Gallery
Bainbridge Performing Arts (BPA) is seeking artists for exhibitions in the BPA Gallery during the 2014 – 2015 Season. The BPA Gallery is a no-commission venue that showcases regional artists in monthly rotating exhibits in the C. Keith Birkenfeld Lobby. Exhibiting artists routinely participate in Bainbridge Island's First Fridays Art Walk.
Both artists and patrons benefit from the no-commission arrangement. The BPA Gallery is a visually enticing space that provides artists with a lot of traffic, and when BPA’s patrons consider buying a piece of art, they know that 100 percent of their money is going directly to the artist who created the work. This fosters a special value-focused relationship between artists and art enthusiasts in the BPA community.
Stop by the BPA Gallery in June for “Further Instructions from the Ochre Room,” an exhibit of acrylic on canvas by Michael Pontieri. View Pontieri's post for the show at http://nocturnalpicnic.blogspot.com/2014/05/a-show-at-bainbridge-performing-arts-in.html. Join us in the BPA Gallery for the First Fridays Art Walk June 6 from 5:00 – 7:00 p.m. for a special artist reception and a fun evening of art, food, and friends.
Artists interested in arranging a showing of their work are encouraged to contact Dominique Cantwell via email with linked or attached work sample at firstname.lastname@example.org. Preference will be given to local artists and all media will be considered. Gallery hours are 12:00 – 5:00 p.m. Tuesday – Friday plus one hour prior to each performance.
