June art show at the Bainbridge Public Library is ‘Mischief and Craft’

Gigi Godfrey will be the featured artist for the June exhibit at the Bainbridge Public Library.

Her exhibit, “Mischief and Craft,” will open at the library during First Friday on Friday, June 7. An opening reception will be held from 5 to 7 p.m.

Godfrey typically uses oil paints or gouache. The show title is taken from a chapter in the book “Other Minds/The Octopus, the Sea, and the Deep Origins of Consciousness” by Peter Godfrey-Smith (no relation).

“My artwork seems to be an expression of my inner feelings ranging from contemplation to whimsy to just pure joy,” the artist explained.

“I am drawn to subjects displaying some sort of rhythm — whether in the way the light patterns form, the shapes link together, or the weaving of color harmony. I am happiest with my work when I stay loose with the brush

and leave unfinished work show through — creating a trail of the evolution. Color and texture are the real appeal and I enjoy using many different tools — brushes, palette knives, scrapers — to create interest in the work.”

Godfrey’s artwork will be displayed in the meeting room during regular library hours and on the library website at www.bainbridgepubliclibrary.org.
