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!

ARTISTS’ RECEPTION | FRIDAY, JUNE 7, 6:00-8:00 PM
ARTIST’S WALKTHROUGH | SATURDAY, JUNE 8TH, 12:30 PM. Amy D’Apice will discuss her work and techniques and take questions.
A year long project of capturing old Bainbridge, a changing landscape of charming cottages, distinctive mailboxes and other bits of island charm still visible. Vanishing Bainbridge is a response to inevitable change. It is an homage to the transitory aspect of our community, a swan song to beloved places giving way to modernity and age.
Longtime resident and painter Amy D’Apice offers up a celebration of past and present with a collection of mixed media works depicting structures and landscapes from Bainbridge Island, some well cared for, some on the edge of demolition—all irreplaceable.
