Join us for informal conversations with three generous couples who will open their homes and talk about their art collections. You’ll see work by Northwest masters, including masters of Native American art. All proceeds will benefit education programs at Bainbridge Arts and Crafts.

Change of Publicist at BAC

Change of Publicist at Bainbridge Arts and Crafts

Bainbridge Arts and Crafts Executive Director Susan Jackson announced today a rare change of staff at BAC. Long-time publicist Victoria Josslin is retiring, and will be replaced by Lindsay Latimore Masters.

Susan Jackson says, “I am really pleased to announce that Lindsay Latimore Masters has been hired to take over Victoria’s responsibilities for publications, marketing, grant writing, and all web-based communications. Lindsay has worked as Communications Manager for the Bainbridge Island Arts & Humanities Council; Staff Writer (arts) for the Bainbridge Review; freelance technical and marketing writer; and writer and editor for Microsoft Corporation. However, Lindsay’s best qualification for the job is a serious passion for art and a strong affection for BAC.”  

It has been a very long time since we have seen such a significant change at BAC. Victoria has been colleague, collaborator, teacher, friend, sister, political analyst, and mother superior to us for ten years and will be a very hard act to follow but I firmly believe that Lindsay is more than up to the task.”

 “I’m eager to have more time to write,” says Josslin, “but very sad to leave the best colleagues and the best job I’ve ever had.” She plans to continue writing for Glass Quarterly, a national publication, and to experiment with other forms of writing. 

“I’ve loved BAC since the moment I walked through the door just days after moving to the Island,” Masters says. “At that point, I wasn’t aware of the depth of BAC’s programs and services and didn’t realize what a special place it holds in the heart of this community. I just knew that the staff was bright and passionate, that the gallery held a beautiful, eclectic, and accessible selection of artwork, and that being there made me happy. And now I get to work there. Pinch me.”   

Masters will begin working at BAC on January 2.

A nonprofit organization founded in 1948, Bainbridge Arts and Crafts encourages the creation and appreciation of fine contemporary art and craft by exhibiting and selling the work of Northwest artists, and by offering art education to a county-wide audience of all ages.


Wonderful Show! (last day . . .)

Today is the last day of our November shows, “Karen Hackenberg” and “Lost and Found.” 

Here is Karen’s “Stranded Vessel” (2012, oil on canvas, 24″ x 36″.  Photo: Jim Lamb). Karen puts her great skills in the service of her ideas, and gives us a new way to look at the intersection of  nature and commerce. Smart, funny, and lets you draw your own conclusions. 

The artists in Lost and Found find their materials in all sorts of places and transform them. 

If you haven’t seen this show, please give yourself the pleasure. And, of course, if you have seen the show, you can re-give yourself the pleasure!
