Walls brought to life at Members Arts Show
Members of the Firehouse Arts Center opened their winter exhibit with a public reception on Thursday, January 18, at 6:30 p.m. The reception followed the annual members organizational meeting held in the Callahan Room at 5:30 pm. The exhibit continues to be open in the Jimmy Harrell Gallery of the Firehouse on Fridays and Sundays from 1 to 4 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. through January 28.
Members displayed some of their earlier creations, along with a collection of their latest works. A variety of mediums were represented, including photography, woodworking, oils and watercolors.
Part of the exhibit paid tribute to the late artist John Bayides, as Henry and Barbara Intilli shared a few pieces from their personal Bayides collection. It is a preview to what will be a total Bayides exhibit scheduled for September.
Renovation work continues at the Firehouse, as the downstairs room, referred to as the Kirbo Room, next to the Callahan Room is undergoing new paint, lighting and necessary changes.
