BIMA’s six new season’s shows open Oct. 12

The Bainbridge Island Museum of Art will open its fall/winter exhibitions Saturday, Oct. 12 with a public reception from 2 to 5 p.m.

The exhibitions, most of which are on display through Feb. 23, are open daily from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and are free to view.

The next season’s shows offer a variety of mediums and styles to enjoy.

“Face First” eyes more than 30 Puget Sound-area artists whose work includes portraiture, focused especially on the human face. This major group exhibition includes painting, photography, sculpture, glass, artist’s books, and mixed media in the Lobby and Feferman Galleries.

Artists include Juliette Aristides, Fong Baatz, Romson Bustillo, Terry Furchgott, Bryant Goetz, Naomi Haverland, Aisha Harrison, Julia Harrison, Christopher Paul Jordan, Kathryn Lesh, Paul Marioni, Mark Kang-O’Higgins, Jane Richlovsky, Adair Freeman Rutledge, Jessica Rycheal, and Susan Singleton.

Seattle artist Jessixa Bagley presents “Jessixa Bagley: Worlds in Pictures” in the MESA Gallery.

This exhibition of recent works spans a wide range — from whimsical to intriguing and emotionally impactful. Included are illustrations, fine art, and installation work.

Jite Agbro mounts a two-story portrait installation titled “Jite Agbro: Deserving” in the Beacon Gallery.

Agbro (from Seattle) is a Nigerian-American artist whose heritage guides and influences her work. Her inspirations include the human form and everyday objects, using wearable accouterments such as clothing, textiles, and jewelry.

“Carol Milne: Knit Wit” continues this fall in the Community and Bistro Galleries.

Milne (from Seattle) expands upon ancient kiln-cast glass techniques used during the Egyptian and Roman periods. Her intriguing and amusing glass sculptures defy the difficult and meticulous processes required to complete the work.

Milne’s “knitted” sculptures go beyond realism and recreation — they weave personal memories and stories.

Also included are cast glass-wall panels in garden motifs.

A selection of glass art from the permanent collection pairs with Carol Milne’s show, in partnership with “REFRACT: The Seattle Art Experience,” taking place across the region in October.

BIMA’s glass collection will be featured in the Lovelace Gallery and will include work by Steffen Dam, Walter Lieberman, Dante Marioni, Paul Marioni, Nancy Mee, Janis Miltenberger, and James Minson.

“Following the Thread” is a group exhibition in the Sherry Grover Gallery featuring artist’s books using the art of stitching.

For this, BIMA partnered with “All Stitched Up,” the fall exhibition at University of Puget Sound’s Collins Memorial Library, and will feature regional and international artists including Mare Blocker, Lou Cabeen, Julie Chen, Lois Morrison, Deborah Peek, Lynn Skordahl, Donna Snow, and Linda Quartman Younker (on display through Nov. 30 only).
