Our History

In January 1948, a news item in the Bainbridge Island Review invited interested adults to attend a meeting at the home of Mr. and Mrs. James Hodges. The purpose of the meeting? To discuss the formation of a nonprofit to "provide creative activity for the Bainbridge Island community." Today, we are still that nonprofit, and so much more.


How We Serve

The Art Project is a nonprofit gallery that brings free art education and outreach to communities across Kitsap County. In fact, we are one of the region’s largest nonprofit galleries, supporting the livelihood of more than 200 Northwest artists while serving close to 10,000 youth, adults, and seniors each year through more than 100 free programs—inside and outside of the gallery space.
