Bainbridge Arts and Crafts presents more than a dozen special exhibitions each year, showcasing brand-new or recent works by BAC artists. Some exhibitions center around broad themes such as a specific medium or conceptual idea. Others feature solo artists or small groups. We also hold two student shows each May to highlight the work of K-12 artists in our community.
At the beginning of each month, we mark our newest exhibitions with a celebratory artist reception during Bainbridge Island’s monthly First Friday Art Walk (6-8 pm). Come join us!
