CELEBRATE LONGMONT AND SHOP LOCAL AT THE FIREHOUSE THIS SEASON!

MAIN GALLERY

The Firehouse Art Center has opened up their Main Gallery to their Artist Members for Hang Time at the Firehouse. All members, whether painters, potters, photographers, or sculptors, were invited to share, hang and display their work. Created as a community building, collaborative exhibit, members were invited to line up to hang up on Sunday, November 6th, with the early birds getting to pick their spots first. At the close of the exhibits, the artists will return and deinstall their work, including time to patch the walls and help paint.

“This exhibit allows us to highlight our local creatives as a great way to shop local and support living artists.” says Elaine Waterman, Executive Director of the Firehouse. “With our Holiday Market on November 26th and 27th, and Hang Time on the walls, the whole gallery will be filled with unique, creative and beautiful options for gift giving!”.

Hang Time opens on November 11th at 6pm during Downtown Longmont’s 2nd Friday festivities.

SOUTH GALLERY

We are excited to introduce our Winter Artist In Residence, Nancy Eastman.

The Firehouse Art Center’s Winter Residency supports a working artist in the South Gallery for three months before a culminating solo exhibition in the Main Gallery, and the opportunity to guest curate the accompanying South Gallery show. The program will run from November 13- Feb 1 (exhibit in February).

The Artist Occupied program at the Firehouse Art Center is intended as a professional development opportunity for emerging and experienced visual artists, exposing visitors to working artist environments and processes.

Previous resident artists include Heather Kegel, Sean Faling, Jessica Forrestal, Chris Blume, Kaitlyn Tucek, Roberta Restaino, and Chelsea Gilmore.

“Colorado is an intimate story of the mountains and plains.  As a second-generation native Coloradan, re-siding here for more than half a century, I have witnessed Colorado’s evolving suburban landscape, and changing agricultural, ranching and rural identities. I am sensitive to the variations of my surroundings, in-terpreting the forces that affect a particular place.” shares Eastman.

Through her use of found and natural objects, Eastman’s work confronts the loss of cultural and indigenous knowledge as well as our lack of connection to the land. She integrates metal, wood, papermaking, printmaking, photography, and book art.  Eastman will be offering two community workshops where community members will assist her in the meditative practice of yarn wrapping, as well as creating a paper collage landscape quilt.
