BAC’s popular art series returns! Bainbridge Islanders open their homes for wine, hors d’oeuvres, a tour of their art, and a discussion of how, what, and why they collect.
This year we’ll visit an in-depth collection of work by a Mid-Century Modern painter; a first-class collection of both Pop Art and Contemporary Northwest art; and a museum-quality collection of Asian antiquities.
Your purchase will directly benefit our education programs at Bainbridge Arts and Crafts. The gallery is pleased to provide scholarships, gallery exhibitions, and money for art supplies to our public school students every year.
Space is limited, so register early.

Ink Resist is a painting method using gouache, a water soluble paint, and permanent ink to create powerful images with bold color. Pierr Morgan, artist and illustrator of more than 20 children’s books, has been using this method for 25 years both for illustration and fine art pieces. Pierr teaches the technique and offers tips and tricks on materials in this lively hands-on workshop. Many of the materials needed are supplied by the instructor. A great way to try a new technique!
