The Institution for Savings Art Gallery, located on the first floor of the Firehouse, hosts 12 art exhibits each year. Artists are invited to submit examples of their work for review and selection by our Visual Arts Committee once a year. All art is for sale and proceeds benefit the artist and Firehouse Center for the Arts. A reception is scheduled for each show and offers a great opportunity to meet the artists.
