Several WA SDA members are showcased with other women artists in a new exhibition at Bainbridge Arts & Crafts in November, including Barbara Zander, Barbara Lee Smith, and Lynda Rickey.


Form, shape, color, and texture can challenge and mesmerize when freed from the anchor of representation.  This powerhouse group of women artists invite us to revel in a profusion of abstraction.  The artists showing at this fascinating show are: Carole Barrer, Marilyn Bergstrom, Caroline Cooley Browne, Leah Clark, Marcella Diamond, Kate Dwyer, Jeannie Grisham, Victoria Harrison, Barbara Kowalski, Suzy Kueckelhan, Kari Bergstrom Mackenzie, Elizabeth Moga, Jeane Myers, M.J. Orcutt, Joan Stuart Ross, Lynda Rickey, Selene Santucci, Barbara Lee Smith, Sharon Strauss, Diane Walker, Helga Winter, Cathy Woo, and Barbara Zander.

Bainbridge Arts & Crafts is located at 151 Winslow Way East… walking distance from the Bainbridge ferry terminal.  For directions to the gallery, click here.

The opening reception will be held Friday, November 1 from 6-8 pm.  There will also be an artist demo of “Surface Exploration” on Saturday November 2 from 12:30-1:30 by Carole Barrer.  Surface texture plays a big role in Carole Barrer’s paintings, emphasizing what she calls the “everyday tension” between images and brushwork.  This is a great opportunity to see some fabulous art and get a little instruction at the same time!
