Fine Art & Craft Sale To Benefit Youth Arts Education Programs

Bainbridge Island, WA — Bainbridge Island Museum of Art (BIMA) presents a special three-day sale of high-quality fine art, craft and jewelry donated by regional collectors. The Art Collectors Marketplace - Fine Art & Craft Sale will take place Friday, October 4 from 10 a.m. - 8 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday, October 5 & 6 from 10 a.m. - 6 p.m. in the Museum’s galleries at 550 Winslow Way East, Bainbridge Island, WA 98110. Open to the public, proceeds support the Museum’s exceptional youth programs that happen throughout the year—including field trips, workshops, summer camps, teen events, and more.

Through the generosity of collectors and museum supporters in the region, the Art Collectors Marketplace - Fine Art & Craft Sale will feature more than 500 works from the Northwest and beyond. Shoppers will find artwork in all forms, price ranges, styles and media by artists representing the range of emerging to master level.

The sale will fill the entire downstairs galleries of BIMA, with many pieces priced under $100. Media include painting, sculpture, glass, ceramics, prints, photographs, artist’s books, jewelry, textiles, and mixed media. Artists include Leo Adams, Alfredo Arreguin, Michael Dailey, John de Wit, Kathryn Glowen, Lois Graham, Art Hansen, Barry Harem, Clayton James, Faye Jones, Amos Kennedy, John Franklin Koenig, Phillip Levine, William McEnroe, Jimmy Mirikitani, Marianne Partlow, Mary Randlett, Selene Santucci, Gale Sterrett, and Richard Stine to name a few. Shoppers will have the opportunity to own highly collectible fine art and craft for well under the estimated value.

“BIMA is so lucky to have the blessing of a large group of collectors to sell this work on their behalf, with 100% of the proceeds supporting Youth and Family Programs at BIMA,” said Kristin Tollefson, Education Director. “These programs serve a broad variety of ages, abilities and access points throughout the region. Our subsidized school programs allow student access to gallery learning and in-classroom artists in residence. Art After Dark, our annual teen museum takeover, offers pathways for high school student arts leaders to design their own night of art, words and music at the Museum. Families of all configurations enjoy free Art in Action art making projects both at BIMA and at pop-up outreach locations throughout greater Kitsap County.”

A special BIMA Members-only pre-sale event will take place on Thursday, October 3 from 6:30 - 9pm. Members will get first access to the sale and will be able to use their 10% Museum Store Discount during that one evening. Memberships can be purchased at or by calling Shehalee Smyer, Membership Coordinator, at (206) 451-4002.
