Bainbridge Performing Arts Gallery To Hold First Friday Art Walk: 'Prints in the Key of Life'

Join in with the BPA Gallery December 6 for the First Friday Art Walk and an enjoyable evening of art and friends. In this exhibit, Architect Christopher Gutsche's personal retrospective reveals the unfolding story of a lifetime, as told in prints. For forty plus years Christopher has carved a single, annual block capturing a story - something significant and profound from that year's arc of life. Sometimes his blocks reflect a thought, lyric, or magical moment, birth, death, love lost, or a love gained - stories that are frequently hidden and oblique. In annual sequence these prints trace a lifetime. Titles often reveal clues to Christopher's story, but he finds it much more fun to see viewers discover and recognize stories of their own. The exhibit continues through December 22 in the BPA Gallery.

The BPA Gallery showcases regional artists in revolving exhibits in the C. Keith Birkenfeld Lobby and regularly participates in the First Friday Art Walk from 5:00 - 7:00 p.m. Gallery hours are 1:00 - 4:00 p.m. Wednesday - Friday plus one hour prior to each performance. Admission is free, and information is available online at, by phone at 206.842.8569 or in person at BPA, 200 Madison Avenue North, Bainbridge Island.
