The Bainbridge Performing Arts Gallery will feature “Portraits,” a series of colorful porcelain enamel on steel portraits by long-time island artist David Berfield, in October.

This colorful work combines computer generated images with hand-cut stencils and powdered glass fused to steel. Berfield has been working in enamel on steel on Bainbridge Island for

36 years. He is better known for working with other artists, but this show is all his own.

The exhibition opens with a special artist reception and a fun evening of art, food, and friends on the First Fridays Art Walk from 5 to 7 p.m. Friday, Oct. 4.

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.
