With its facilities closed and its patrons at home due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Firehouse Arts Center’s Harrington Gallery is taking its exhibits online with “Art in Place.” The virtual exhibition showcases artwork created by Bay Area artists during the statewide shelter-in-place directive.
More than 90 local artists submitted works for the exhibit, and every piece will be on display, from the works of budding middle school artists to professionals who have been honing their talents for decades.
“We were delighted by the incredible response to our call for art, and we continue to be surprised by the amazing talent and creativity of our community,” said Rachel Montez, Visual Arts & Gallery Curator for the Firehouse Arts Center. “The beauty of the community coming together and sharing their message through art has been overwhelming. It shows that the power of art shines through even in the toughest times.”
To take a tour of the virtual exhibition, go to www.firehousearts.org/gallery/art-in-place. The exhibit will be on the website through May 29. For questions about specific artwork, the public is encouraged to contact the artists through their listed emails and websites.
