May 3rd: 1st Friday Art Walk “ABSTRACTION: Give Photo Realism a Rest”
Join us in the BPA Gallery May 3rd for an artist reception and an enjoyable evening of art and friends. Rob Wagoner comes from a 40-year career as an architect focusing on the design of public buildings. In his passion for photography, it has become important for him to see things from a different vantage, to create an alternate meaning and blur the lines of reality (abstract them) in his images.

About the Author

Bainbridge Performing Arts: since 1956, countless acts – large and small – have informed each production that graces the BPA stage. Collectively we have grown and reaped a communal bounty of grass-roots ARTivism, with people from all walks of life gathering under one roof to laugh, rage, and cry with friends, family, neighbors, and strangers. As heart strings are plucked in a drumbeat of connection, we turn to you in gratitude for the opportunity to bring a taste of magic to the community that we love!
