Bainbridge Island Summer Studio Tour Celebrates Local Artists

Bainbridge-Island-Summer-Studio-Tour-4Now in its 15th year, the Bainbridge Island Studio Tour opens its summer showcase the weekend of August 7-9, 2015. The Tour is a twice-annual, free, self-guided art show on Bainbridge Island, Washington, and invites guests to celebrate the beauty and craftsmanship of local, handmade art.

During the festive summer studio tour, local artists open their studios while other artists join them in garden settings with live music to create an inviting marketplace of fine art. Bainbridge Island and off-island visitors anticipate this enjoyable event, which has been held since 2001, and attendance is growing. This summer, five studios will present the work of 48 local artists, including ceramicist Dawn McNamara, jewelry maker Passiko True, nature photographer Jean-Claude Louis and painter Sylvia Carlton.

Regional artists jury in to the art shows, and sell their work at Bainbridge Island artists’ studios and historic community halls. When you visit the studios, you’ll see some works in progress, raw materials, tools, and perhaps some inspiration mixed in with a little sawdust!

Bainbridge Island Studio Tour

Just a 30-minute ferry ride from Seattle, Bainbridge Island is a wonderful destination for art and culture lovers. Surrounded by water and picturesque views, Bainbridge Island is a lovely town full of quaint shops, restaurants, bed and breakfasts, and an abundance of art and artists.

New ‘Wild About Trees’ Exhibit Celebrates Trees in Art

pyrophyte-2_by_Cheryl-Richey

‘Pyrophyte 2’ by Cheryl A. Richey

Although artists Donna Leavitt, Cheryl A. Richey, and Elizabeth Reed Smith‘s art reflect diverse styles and media, these Northwest artists share a deep affinity for trees and an interest in exploring and understanding their unifying symbolism. Trees have long been associated with a sense of mystery, magic, strength, and wisdom. Over time and throughout history, tree imagery has been featured in myths, parables, dream theories, and art.

For example, trees are often depicted as nature’s gladiators whose strength enables them to continue to struggle and survive despite great odds and dire circumstances. In many cultures, trees are revered as totems of unseen forces or potent symbols of such qualities as longevity, fertility, wisdom, and immortality.

Wild About Trees” stimulates contemplation of both the artistic merits of trees and the universal power of tree symbolism to advance understanding and appreciation of trees in an ecologically-balanced world, and the sweeping interconnectedness between people and the environment.

‘Wild About Trees’

When: August 2, 2015 – October 4, 2015
Where: The Gallery at Grace Episcopal Church (8595 Day Road East)
Gallery Hours: Tuesday – Friday, 9:00 am – 4:00 pm; Sunday, 8:00 am – 11:00 am (and by appointment)

Closing Reception and Artists’ Talk: Sunday, September 27, 10:45 am – 12:00 pm. The artists will donate a percentage of art sales to Bainbridge Island Land Trust (BILT).
