October 6: BPA Gallery First Friday Artwalk "Landed"
Join us in the BPA Gallery for an artist reception and an enjoyable evening of art and friends. Photographer Tom Ciaburri describes his October photography exhibit in the BPA Gallery as a story about spheres that descend one spring night in the Berkshire Hills. Why they appear is unknown. What they are or do is unknown. "Landed" is about the moment of discovery, the moment when - even if just for a second - absolute belief exists, and everything is possible.
First Friday Art Walk: Friday @ 5:00 - 7:00 p.m.; Gallery Hours: 10:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. Tuesday - Friday + one hour prior to each performance Free; Info: 206.842.8569 or www.bainbridgeperformingarts.org
