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 January 14th through March 6th, with the opening reception to be held from 6pm-9pm on the 14th. Dwayne Wolff, one of Firehouse’s resident artists, will be playing music at the event, with beverages provided by Left Hand Brewing Company.
“I am grateful to Firehouse Art Center and its members for this invitation to survey the work submitted. It is a testament to the vitality of Longmont’s artist community.”- Jane Burke
