Opening Reception: Saturday July 8th 2023 5- 8pm

I’m so delighted to have been selected to take part in this diverse 10th Anniversary group juried exhibition at the Bainbridge Island Museum of Art. I feel honored to be showing my piece Resilient Escapement with some of the best working artists in our region. Resilient Escapement is a pendulum of sorts. Measuring what is lost and what is found. Picking up the mundane detritus of our lives and honoring the seemly insignificant cast offs that connect us. Bainbridge Island Museum of Art presents BIMA Spotlight, their first-ever juried group exhibition. Six jurors reviewed approximately 3,400 artworks, submitted by 606 artists from the Puget Sound region. The result is a diverse salon-style show, filling the majority of BIMA’s two gallery floors. BIMA Spotlight is part of BIMA’s 10th Anniversary celebration. The exhibition was not juried along certain themes or art genres; however, several have emerged. These include environmental concerns, social justice issues, art from recycled and repurposed materials, installation work, landscapes, portraiture, and abstract art.

Resilient Escapment, Anna Macrae
