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 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.

New Orleans and the region are frequently invoked as one of the areas most vulnerable to the effects of environmental change. Our highly manipulated landscape can be seen as a microcosm of the global environment, manifesting both the challenges and possibilities inherent in the ways humans interact with urban and natural ecosystems. With nearly half of the world’s population living within 40 miles of a coastline with rising seas, the concerns of Southern Louisiana resonate globally. Adaptations Residencies invite artists to examine how climate driven adaptations – large and small, historic and contemporary, cultural and scientific – shape our future. Adaptations Residencies will provide artists with time, space, scholarship and staff support to foster critical thinking and creation of new works. The call is open to artists of all disciplines who have demonstrated an established dialogue with environmental and culturally related issues and a commitment to seeking and plumbing new depths. We ask artists to describe in detail how the region will affect their work, to propose a public component to their residency and to suggest ways in which they will engage with the local community. Direct questions to Cammie Hill-Prewitt at info@astudiointhewoods.org. Application Deadline, April 22, 2019.
