BPA gallery puts out open call for artists

Artists are invited to exhibit their work in the Bainbridge Performing Arts Gallery during the upcoming 2020-2021 season.

Booked already through May 2020, BPA is currently seeking regional artists to showcase their work in future rotating exhibits.

This opportunity features no commissions, a beautiful venue, high-volume traffic, per BPA’s year-round performance and class lineup, free publicity at www.bainbridgeperformingarts.org, plus 100 percent of purchaser funds go directly to the artist who created the work, officials said.

Interested parties are requested to submit a letter of interest and sample of their work to Siobhán Maguire at smaguire@bainbridgeperformingarts.org.

The BPA Gallery showcases regional artists in revolving exhibits in the C. Keith Birkenfeld Lobby and regularly participates in the First Friday Art Walk. Gallery hours are 1 to 4 p.m. Wednesday to Friday, plus one hour prior to each BPA performance.

Exhibits run approximately three weeks. Roughly one week is reserved for take down/installation ahead of the monthly First Friday Art Walk.

Some exhibits run one month and some months are paired per BPA’s performance schedule. Artists aiming for high turnout at the Arts Walk are encouraged to promote the event themselves.

Gallery admission is free, and information is available online at www.bainbridgeperformingarts.org, by phone at 206-842-8569 or in person at 200 Madison Ave. North.
