FIREHOUSE GALLERY & connections program General Information

The Firehouse Gallery is a community gallery space. Availability is on a first come, first serve basis. Current availability: Fall/Winter of 2019. For inquiries and information email the Director of Visual Arts, Kelsey Livingston, at klivingston@artsbr.org.

The Connections Program serves to connect artists with local civic, retail, or educational spaces that act as alternatives to traditional gallery show spaces. The exhibitions connect artists with parts of the community that may not otherwise be inclined to go into a gallery, and improve the environment they are housed in for those that work there. They rotate on a semi-annual basis. If you are a business or artist and would like to participate in this program please contact the Director of Visual Arts, Kelsey Livingston at klivingston@artsbr.org for more information.
