The Bainbridge Performing Arts Gallery will display “Further Instructions from the Ochre Room,” the work of Michael Pontieri this June.

An artist reception and a fun evening of art, food, and friends will be held during the First Fridays Art Walk from 5 to 7 p.m. Friday, June 6.

Pontieri describes his work as “paintings from a caveman with a camera and a set of Time-Life art books.” He employs a variety of styles, sometimes as a jolt to remind viewers that they’re looking at a painting, sometimes as a reminder to himself that the people he depicts are multifaceted, and sometimes to visit the past, review his own history, or to try on different eras.

Gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and one hour prior to each performance. Admission is free.
