BPA Gallery to Present REFINED RAW Next MonthBPA Gallery to Present REFINED RAW Next Month
October 21, 2014

Stop by the BPA Gallery this November for an exhibit of abstract paintings by Amos Staffler Edwards. Refined raw is a mixed-medium process created on Bainbridge Island, and this collection features elements reminiscent of encaustic and glass work, oil, and watercolor. The nuanced combination of color, texture, and depth of focus encourages viewers to travel off the path of the linear and into the realm of the visceral, offering a journey through time and the collective unconscious where words cannnot reach. The pieces are living and will subtly patina over time, becoming richer with age and bearing witness to our lives. View more of the artist's work online at www.byamos.com. (more...)

October 21, 2014

Luxembourg & Dayan is pleased to announce an exhibition of seminal works by Mario Schifano (1934-1998), one of Italy's most significant postwar artists.

His prodigious talent, somewhat obscured in his day by an eccentric personality and self-destructive drive, was at its height in the 1960s, a decade in which he experimented extensively with ever-changing media and techniques, traversing a wide spectrum of styles that he made entirely his own.
