In this podcast, painter and long-time Bainbridge Island resident Amy D’Apice talks with The Art Project about why she is embarking on a yearlong project called “Vanishing Bainbridge.” Time is of the essence, and your participation and ideas are crucial to her project’s success.

Amy moved to Bainbridge Island in 1986 and raised her family here. But having lived in Thailand for the past five years—only summering on Bainbridge—she feels particularly impacted by the changing landscape of our fair island,  and has decided to capture as much of what’s left of “old Bainbridge” as she can with her pens and paintbrushes before it fades away forever.

You can help pay tribute to this beautiful gem we call home by joining Amy’s quest to capture images of vanishing Bainbridge. If you have ideas for subjects for her to paint—charming cottages, distinctive mailboxes, or other bits of island charm still visible on the island—please contact Amy directly at amydapice@gmail.com, and share your ideas with her. 

Follow her progress on the project through the year on her blog, and make sure you like our Facebook page to track progress as well.
