"Long Range" Exhibit Opening Reception

Firehouse Art Center’s “Long Range” opens on Jan. 14, celebrating the art of four local artists. Artist members at the Firehouse are an integral part of our community: supporting events as volunteers, contributing to exhibitions, participating in pop ups, and attending social artist gatherings, critiques and workshops. The Firehouse Art Center is committed to sharing thought provoking contemporary art with Boulder County, and we are proud to celebrate four artists exploring media and meaning in our own backyard. The Firehouse is honored to have Jane Burke as our juror for the show. The exhibit’s title “Long Range” is Burke’s nod to Longmont and the Front Range, but also a comment on the ongoing commitment of these artists and the long-range goals of their practice. “Long Range” will be on exhibit from Jan. 14 through March 6, with the opening reception to be held from 6 to 9 p.m. on Jan. 14. Dwayne Wolff, one of Firehouse’s resident artists, will be playing music at the event, with beverages provided by Left Hand Brewing Company.

South Gallery Exhibit Opening - "Stripping the System: The True Cost of Fast Fashion"

Teen Artists take on the Fashion industry in an exhibition focused on the environmental impact of fast fashion. Studio Project, facilitated by BMoCA and the Firehouse Art Center, helps teens find their creative voice in order to make positive change in their communities. It is an education program that provides purposeful opportunities for high school youth to create dialogue about art, art making, and social issues as they affect young people. The students work with a different professional artist and local nonprofit each semester. This fall, they learned relief printmaking under the mentorship of Boulder artist Theresa Haberkorn, who guided them as they created art for this show. Each participant designed and created a relief cut plate that they then printed on an item of clothing they already owned but no longer wore. “Stripping the System” is a culmination of their work. The Jan. 14 exhibit opening from 6 to 9 a.m. at the Firehouse Art Center will include a teen led clothing swap, as well as a clothing mending station.
