The Bainbridge Performing Arts Gallery will participate in the First Fridays Art Walk at 5 p.m. April 5 for the exhibition, “Refined Raw,” a mixed media show by Amos Staffler Edwards.

Edwards will show abstract paintings, and “Refined Raw” describes a mixed-medium process created on Bainbridge Island. The collection features elements reminiscent of encaustic and glass work, oil and watercolor. The nuanced combination of color, texture and depth of focus encourages viewers to travel off the path of the linear and meander the realm of the visceral, through time and the collective unconscious where words can’t reach.
