Library Art Exhibit - December

December 1, 2023  |  5PM - 7PM  |  Bainbridge Public Library

"Holiday Art Exhibition and Sale: Landscape, Plein Air and More!"

by the "Rockettes"

Celebrate the holiday season with First Friday Art Walk, December 1. This show features the work of seven women who first met and painted together at Winslow Art Center on Bainbridge Island. In 2020, when COVID-19 restrictions limited their in-person gatherings, they turned to Zoom and weekly prompts to stay connected as a community of artists. Over time, "The Rockettes" have had various paint-outs and exhibitions. Each artist's work is a unique expression of their individual journey, showcasing their personal growth and creative style. The hope is that these paintings inspire and delight you, as well as provide you an opportunity to share with your loved ones during the holiday season. Thank you for your support of the arts.  The exhibit can be viewed at the Library's main meeting room throughout the month of December.

The Artists

Fatima Young "On location I study nature and simplify it. My goal is always to capture the freshness and rhythm found in majestic landscapes." 

Diana C. Benjamin "Just like in my photography, I love capturing moments, movement, tone, and color; always intent on evoking emotion and nostalgia." 

Nora Masters "I paint from life, expressing nature as I see and feel capturing that moment in time." 

Tannis Moore "My art is inspired by and created in times of personal peace and reflection. Light, strong value contrasts and color are what intrigue and draw my attention.” 

Joanne Onorato "I paint to explore the beauty of form through the language of paint. I am drawn to light and shadow, creating dramatic space through these natural illuminations" 

Gigi Godfrey "For me painting is about observing and experimenting. I enjoy discovering nuances in color, pattern, and light. I try to interpret gesture and emotion with the medium to evoke intrigue with the viewer." 

Wendy Armstrong "Life is a journey, and I live it with intention that everyday counts. The life of intention encompasses traveling populated and well-known paths as well as breaking new ground and creating one’s own path. It is my own passion to make things that I hope will add to the quality of life of others, as well as my own."
