February BPA Gallery: “Geology in the Abstract”
Oil on Panels by Mary McCann
Exhibit Continues through
February 29 at Bainbridge Performing Arts (BPA)

Mary McCann’s two-month exhibit of oils on panels continues through February 29 in the BPA Gallery. In this body of work Mary explores outcomes of events in the geologic story of our planet Earth. Ocean floors spread. Tectonic plates move. Continents collide. Subduction thrusts up great mountains. Huge land masses slide past one another. One side drops. Another side rises. Unimaginable pressure squeezes rock and rearranges crystalline structure. Millions of years pass – the Precambrian, the Paleozoic, Mesozoic, and Cenozoic. These transformations require time that humans cannot comprehend.

The BPA Gallery showcases regional artists in revolving exhibits in the C. Keith Birkenfeld Lobby. Gallery hours are 1:00 – 4:00 p.m. Wednesday – Friday plus one hour prior to each performance. Admission is free, and information is available online at, by phone at 206.842.8569 or in person at BPA, 200 Madison Avenue North, Bainbridge Island. Please check with the BPA Box Office for specific exhibit dates, as the length of each show varies.

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!
