Bainbridge Arts & Crafts presents the mixed-media vessels of Caroline Cooley Browne and the exhibitions "Fiber Arts Now" and "Bowled Over" from Feb. 7 through March 3.

An artists’ reception is 6 to 8 p.m. Friday, Feb. 7.

Browne explores growth and community through intimate groupings of mixed media vessels. Woven and constructed from fabric, paper, wood and even tape, their postures are expressive and remarkably human, and their conversations potentially endless.

In conjunction with her exhibition this month, Brown will give a frame loom weaving demo at 12:30 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 8 at BAC. Come see her work magic with fiber and a portable frame loom.

"Fiber Art Now" features artists who are redefining the textile arts, taking fiber into strikingly modern territory; Deborah Babin, Lou Cabeen, Maria Groat, Linda McFarland, Heather McGilvray, Kim Morris, Carol Roi Olsen, Lynnette Sandbloom, Barbara Zander and Dana Ziesemer.

"Bowled Over" offers a fresh take on wooden bowls, the ultimate “domestic sculpture.” Artists include Roger Dunn, Bob Hickernell, Edlee Quesnell, Dave Schweitzer, Lee Stoller, Brian Watson, Helga Winter and Dale Zimmerman.

A nonprofit art gallery founded in 1948, Bainbridge Arts & Crafts encourages the creation and appreciation of fine contemporary art and craft by exhibiting and selling the work of Northwest artists, and by offering art education to a county-wide audience of all ages.

Bainbridge Arts & Crafts is located at 151 Winslow Way E.
