BIMA Spotlight – Juried Exhibition
Past Exhibition

Bainbridge Island Museum of Art presents BIMA Spotlight, our 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 with the work of 150 artists from the Puget Sound Region. BIMA Spotlight is part of BIMA’s 10th Anniversary celebration and opens Friday, June 30, 2023 with a public opening reception on Saturday, July 8, from 4:00-9:00 pm, and closes on Sunday, September 24, 2023.

Spotlight 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. Diverse media include: painting; printmaking; photography; sculpture in metal, wood, ceramic, glass, and mixed media; artists’ books; fiber art and textiles; and jewelry art.
