In addition to the Summer Art Market, BIMA is proud to present BIMA Spotlight, their 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. BIMA Spotlight is part of BIMA’s 10th Anniversary celebration. The BIMA Spotlight runs from June 30th through September 10th.

Please note that all sales at the Summer Art Market go directly to the independent vendors and are not associated with the Museum Store. Due to this, the BIMA Member Museum Store discount will not apply to any purchases from vendors at the Summer Art Market.

Open late – Beginning June 30, 2023 (through September 2nd) the museum will stay open until 8:00 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays. The effort builds upon BIMA’s success with extended hours on First Fridays. Not only will the galleries be open later, but the BIMA Bistro will be open and serve beer, wine, and snacks while the Museum Store will be open for shopping.

Opened in 2013, Bainbridge Island Museum of Art (BIMA) is located in downtown Winslow on Bainbridge Island in the heart of the Puget Sound (550 Winslow Way E.). The museum’s mission is to inspire curiosity, wonder, and understanding by connecting people with the contemporary art and craft of the Puget Sound region.
