Time is running out to take in the exhibition of art by Michael Pontieri at the Bainbridge Performing Arts Gallery.

The show of Pontieri's art — “Further Instructions from the Ochre Room” — closes at the end of June.

Pontieri describes his work as “paintings from a caveman with a camera and a set of Time Life art books.”

The artist 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. Friday and one hour prior to each performance at BPA. Admission is free.
