Gayle Bard: A Singular Vision celebrates the long and rich career of one of Bainbridge Island’s most respected artists, Gayle Bard (AR '83). From her early installations that challenged viewers’ perceptions to her groundbreaking Bunker series of large-scale paintings that blended abstraction with representation, to the majestic landscapes within massive dark frames that have become her hallmarks.
From an early age, Bard was encouraged to explore art, and the prospect of creating an illusion made such a significant impression upon her that it has informed her work through its shifts in scale, medium, and subject matter to the present day. Bard’s inspiration include art history, architecture, interior, garden, and set design, as well as the varied landscapes of her many travels throughout the region and beyond. Motivated by exploration itself and the process of discovering and capturing what she sees during her journeys, Bard’s large-scale paintings are unparalleled in the northwest for their splendor and timeless qualities.
