Norman OK. Firehouse Art Center Showcases Artwork by Faculty. From June 6, 2014 through July 26, 2014. Enjoy your day, Yareah friends. Art is everywhere and up to you!
From June 6, 2014 through July 26, 2014 the Firehouse Art Center Gallery will feature an exhibition of recent work from its faculty members. The public is invited to meet faculty members at the “opening” reception on June 20, 2014 from 6:00 to 9:00 pm.
The FAC Gallery also will have extended hours for the 2nd Friday Circuit of Art on June 13th from 6:00 to 9:00 pm. Join us as we unveil new work from the talented faculty of the Firehouse. The faculty are known for being quality educators and this is an excellent chance to view a wide variety of talent displayed in one location. Artists from each medium taught at the Firehouse will be represented, including painting, fiber, stone carving, jewelry, sculpture, ceramics, drawing, printmaking, glass and more. The gallery is also open to the public Monday – Friday from 9:30-5:30, and Saturday from 10:00-4:00.
“The Faculty Show is a great opportunity for our community to experience the art of our gifted faculty. It is through their work with the community that, in 2012, we became the proud recipient of two awards for accomplishments in art education; the Governor’s Award for ‘The Arts in Education’ and the first Norman Arts Council ‘Art Education Award,’ sponsored by Fowler Volkswagen. During the gallery reception, guests will have a chance to speak with artists about their work and the classes they teach,” said Douglas Shaw Elder, Executive Director of the Firehouse Art Center.
Firehouse Art Center sponsors include: Allied Arts, The Kirkpatrick Family Fund, the National Endowment for the Arts, the Oklahoma Arts Council, the Norman Arts Council, Republic Bank and Trust, Sarkeys Foundation, Target, the Anne V.
