Bainbridge Arts and Craft presents the exhibition “Main Street” and the work of sculptor Gerry Newcomb Oct. 5 through Oct. 29.

Painters and photographers find Main Street close to home and around the world; as a particular place and as a frame of mind. It turns out that Main Street overflows with history, poetry, humor, and design – intentional and accidental. This exhibition will include images of Main Streets in Poulsbo, Eastern Washington, Taos, Bremerton, Rome and Vashon Island. Bainbridge Island photographer Joel Sackett will exhibit images of a historic Bainbridge Island street that has now vanished into the woods.

Other artists include Cameron Bahnson, Michael Frey, Raymond Gendreau, Gretchen Hancock, Mary McInnis, Colleen Meacham, Gerry Newcomb, Luke Tornatzky, Diane Walker, Kay Walsh and Barbara Wilson.

Newcomb will present his new cast glass houses, which have the look of collage.

A free artist demo is 12:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 6. Barbara Wilson leads “Painting on the iPad,” and will demonstrate her magical iPad methods in the gallery.

The BAC Gallery is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday. BPA Gallery First Fridays Art Walk: “Visions on a Blue Planet,” fine-art photography by Isaac Elon and Shari Bradbury, opens at 5 p.m. Friday, Oct. 5 at Bainbridge Performing Arts.

Elon and Bradbury share selected pieces from their collection “Visions of Life” through fine art photography this October at the BPA Gallery. Together, the two award-winning photographers comprise Isasha Image. They are life partners who share a passion for photography and the creation of beautiful art.

The BPA Gallery opens the exhibit with a public reception for the artist at the First Fridays Art Walk, 5 to 7 p.m. Oct. 5. Regular gallery hours are noon to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, plus one hour prior to each performance. Admission is free at BPA, 200 Madison Ave. North.
