Means of Production, featuring MANDA REMMEN, NOAH BREUER, ALEXANDRA KNOX, to run from JULY 09 – AUG 29, 2021 (Opening Reception, July 9th)
In “Means of Production” the Firehouse Art Center presents work from three artists addressing issues of labor, ownership, and consumerism. Within our lives and histories all three concepts are intertwined: they are both personal and general with real-world effects. Manda Remmen and Noah Breuer present works that invite visitor participation and hands-on interaction.
Summer on the Streets Festival:
The Firehouse Art Center will be presenting ArtWalk Summer on the Streets as a recurring Saturday Mini Art Festival from 4pm-8pm. Every Saturday, from July 3rd through August 21st, the breezeways and alleys of the 300 East Block, the 400 West block and the 500 East block, will turn into mini Art Markets. Downtown shoppers can view handmade creations from 20 artists weekly, while enjoying pop up concerts featuring 6 local musicians on 3 stages.
The Firehouse Art Center is now accepting applications for our 2022 exhibition calendar:
The Firehouse Art Center is Longmont’s leading contemporary art center featuring national, regional, and local artists. Our beautiful National Historic Landmark building features two exhibitions spaces and over 1,000 square feet of space. Preference is given to submissions that are culturally relevant with a unique perspective and the ability to provide a diverse art experience. Cutting edge contemporary work and multi-disciplinary artists are strongly encouraged. Group exhibitions and curatorial proposals are welcomed, as well as solo exhibition proposals from established and emerging artists in all mediums.
Summer Resident Artist, Janelle Anderson:
This summer the Firehouse Art Center welcomes our newest artist-in-residence, Janelle W. Anderson, to take over the South Gallery as a studio space from June through August. The Artist Occupied program aims to share the creative process with visitors to the space through a behind-the-scenes approach in presenting Anderson’s work- ing methods. She will be present in the gallery every Saturday from 12-5.
