'Tradition' opens during First Friday at BPA
February 26, 2013 · 9:17 AM
BPA Gallery presents “Tradition,” block prints by Chris Gutsche, in March at Bainbridge Performing Arts.
The opening reception is during the First Fridays Art Walk, 5 to 7 p.m. Friday, March 1.
Gutsche’s block prints emanate from a flourishing tradition launched by his mother in the 1950s. Inspired by her annually-prepared linoleum block print holiday greeting cards, Gutsche began to carve and print his own during childhood. He has since established and maintained his own tradition for 32 years, and will share some of his favorites in the March exhibit at the BPA Gallery.
He describes the process of creating each work as “something born of the heart, experienced in the soul and worth carrying forward.”
Gallery hours throughout the month are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, plus one hour prior to each performance. Admission is free at BPA, 200 Madison Ave. North.
