Join us in the BPA Gallery October 5 for an artist reception and an enjoyable evening of art and friends, with landscape and nature paintings, both realistic and abstract. Neil Johannsen and Charles Sharpe, long time Bainbridge residents and friends, are sharing this show. Charles has studied at the Gage Academy of Art and taken many workshops. Neil is self-taught and has exhibited in ten solo shows, selling more than 100 paintings into public and private collections.

Charles is an artist, musician, and woodworker who currently does display work for new exhibitions for the Bainbridge Island Museum of Art. Neil is retired director of Alaska State Parks, former operations chief for California State Parks. His work focuses on nature, often in an abstract and bas relief manner. Charles does landscapes, abstracts, and portraits and enjoys charcoal life drawing. This exhibit continues throughout October at Bainbridge Performing Arts.
