“Unofficial” First Friday Art Walk – December 4, 2020 – Happy Holidays to All!

Winslow Way and surrounding area, Downtown Bainbridge Island
First Friday of every month, 6-8 PM

Although the official First Friday Art Walk, produced by Bainbridge Island Downtown Association and sponsored by the City of Bainbridge Island has yet to resume, some businesses downtown continued the tradition on a virtual basis during the last several months,  and as re-opening guidelines permitted, they began welcoming the public back into their galleries and shops.

Featuring Bergh Images, Jeffrey Moose Gallery, and SOS Bainbridge Island Holiday Shopping Guide

Please note: to adhere to social distancing guidelines, businesses will only allow a limited capacity of patrons in their shops/galleries (generally, 4-5 people at one time).

Per state health order 20-03, a facial covering must be worn in both indoor and outdoor public spaces (when you’re within six feet of people outside your household) to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Thank you for doing your part to keep our community safe and our businesses open.

Jeffrey Moose Gallery – Jeffrey invites you to join him in person or online this Friday, December 4th, to celebrate a wonderful Holiday exhibit of masks, prints and pedestal art from two exceptional Native American talents!

Native artists Jennifer Angaiak Wood (half Yup’ik) and Lillian Pitt (Warm Springs / Yakama) will exhibit from December 3rd through January 30th at Jeffrey Moose Gallery on Bainbridge Island. A reception will be held on First Friday, December 4th from 6 to 8 PM. A Facebook Livestream will be filmed from 6 to 6:20 PM for the benefit of those who prefer a virtual visit. Jeffrey Moose will walk through the exhibit with Ms. Wood and discuss the works.

Indianola artist Jennifer Angaiak Wood, who is half Yup’ik from Alaska’s central coast, will show a blend of mixed media masks and fine art prints which reflect her heritage in ways that nod both to tradition and to a fresh perspective on a style that influenced many European artists of the early 20th century including Picasso, Miro, Magritte and others.

Lillian Pitt is a living Northwest Art legend whose work has been collected by the National Museum of the American Indian in Washington, D.C., the cities of Portland and Seattle and collectors nationwide and internationally. She is known for her ceramic and cast glass sculpture, including masks and totemic figures, as well as sterling silver jewelry and, over 25-plus years, a huge variety of printmaking media.

The gallery offers not only an amazing selection of artwork, but also custom framing and restoration work (to learn more about the services offered, click here). 

The Jeffrey Moose Gallery is located at 181 Winslow Way East, Ste F, Bainbridge Island, WA 98110
