Pam Galvani’s handsome and harrowing tryptic commemorating the the December 2012 Newtown shooting tragedy that showed at year Shift exactly a year later has been selected for a special exhibition Jan. 18-March 9 at the Bainbridge Island Museum of Art.

Twelve Years In the Woods: Arts studio Gallery, features Galvani and 25 other artists who showed for a dozen years at Art Grice’s Fletcher Bay Gallery, which closed last year.  Galvani had four shows there.

Galvani executed the tryptic in sumi ink on Rives BFK while listening to the Brandenburg concertos, using the words she’d immediately penned in response to radio news reports of the incomprehensible event:

What are we waiting for in taking care

of all we hold dear

while guns plague us with losses

too awful to bear.
