A new BIMA exhibition featuring the collected whimsical works of Max Grover is now on display at the Bainbridge Island Museum of Art.

"Max Grover: Hunter, Gatherer, Painter," opened Saturday, June 28 and will on display through early October in the first floor gallery.

Grover has created 53 new paintings during the past year, inspired by his own diverse and kooky collections of souvenirs, toys, statuettes, domestic items and ephemera.

To enhance the viewer’s experience, BIMA is also showcasing Grover’s collections used in the paintings - hundreds of items including black cats, bolo ties, wrestlers, baseball memorabilia and souvenir pins.

Grover is an artist, illustrator and gallery owner living in Port Townsend.

An artist since childhood, Grover exhibits his works in galleries throughout the Pacific Northwest and California. He is the creator of many popular children’s books, including "The Accidental Zucchini," which received a Parents’ Choice Award.

Grover uses familiar and simple motifs, making them fun and whimsical.
