This summer the Firehouse Art Center welcomes our newest artist-in-residence, Janelle W. Anderson, to take over the South Gallery as a studio space from June through August. The Artist Occupied program aims to share the creative process with visitors to the space through a behind-the-scenes approach in presenting Anderson’s work- ing methods. She will be present in the gallery every Saturday from 12-5.

Throughout the residency Anderson will solicit image submissions from the public, to use on constructing her fullgallery installation titled “All Together Now.” Composed of collage-like paintings on different sized supports. The collage elements are in the paintings as well as in the different shaped supports that link together. The painting will continue off the supports and onto the walls of the gallery, creating a continuous piece that is site specific.

This residency is supported in part by our partnership with NeST Studio for the Arts.
