Building an art viewing itinerary for your next trip to Bainbridge Island can be exhausting!Let us take the guesswork out of planning your visit. Here is a sample itinerary from some of the most popular art destinations around Bainbridge Island – from local coffee-hosue artwork to live performances and much more.
To start with art, head straight into downtown Winslow. Artisanal offerings abound at Blackbird Bakery, from the hand crafted espresso drinks and pastries to the art on the walls. Paintings, photographs and other creations are rotated through, and you might even catch a busker playing on one of the benches outside.
From your seat in a booth or by the front window, give your butter knife a spin. Chances are good it will point toward a gallery. Stepping out of the bakery, Roby King Gallery is just a couple doors down; look across the street and you can see The Gallery to the right and Danger to the left. Each of these shops showcase locally made artwork.
To include music or theater arts in your mix, check out the schedule for Bainbridge Performing Arts. You’ll find choices that include chamber music, the symphony, improv performance and a complete season of theatrical productions.
After a day of indulging your eyes and ears, be sure to give your palate a turn. There are plenty of choices; try Ba Sa, which anchors one end of Winslow Way and offers the kind of rarefied experience your tastebuds can enjoy. — Cindy Jones
