BPA Gallery First Friday Art Walk: “Inkgarden
Featuring Bainbridge Island Printmakers
First Friday Art Walk: March 3 @ 5:00 – 8:00 p.m.* (* Extended showing)
Exhibit continues throughout March at Bainbridge Performing Arts (BPA)

Celebrate the vibrant printmaking community that now thrives on Bainbridge Island, and join us March 3 for an artist reception and a fun evening of art, food, and friends.

Artist Wendy Orville opened Inkgarden Studio in 2004, offering classes in monotype. When approached about this exhibit, Wendy responded, “I feel so lucky to be part of such a generous, joyful and committed group of artists (and friends). I found an old Inkgarden poster from the very beginning and it said ‘Cultivate your creativity within a safe and supportive community. Explore ideas, develop skills, and liberate your imagination.’ I started the workshops without a clue if there would be any interest. I remember standing in the recently renovated studio space, holding my son, Gabe (he was about one) and thinking what have I done? Will anyone come? So here we all are. What an adventure!”
