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.

Celebrating the wildness and delicacy of roses, poppies, peonies and hibiscus in full bloom. Through remarkable color blending, shadowing and modeling, the eye is drawn toward the infinite regress of petals unfurling from the heart of each blossom and wherein each micro-detail appears a virtual world in itself.
“Jazz Art”- An exhibit of linoleum, wood and mono prints by Peter Bodge is on view at the Institution for Savings Art Gallery at the historic Firehouse Center for the Arts from December 7, 2016 – January 1, 2017.
With an old world patina - grainy, misty, almost haunting - these black and white photographic images capture the timeless essence of Paris and the Seine.
Celebrating the infinite and eternal in the simplicity of natural objects. Freely suspended in shadow, assorted beach stones are meticulously telephotographed and backlit by an otherworldly glow.
Vehicles for introspection, these ethereal freeform abstractions aim to evoke emotive states within the viewer.
A remarkable collaboration by a richly diverse group of photographers, this beautiful collection of images flows seamlessly in theme, texture, color, and hue as a truly cohesive body of work.
Vibrant, colorful scenes of boats, buoys, ropes, and traps celebrating the beauty of the spaces and objects that surround and define the day of the hard-laboring fishermen and women of the working waterfront.
An elegant photographic series of woodlands, meadows, and dunes infused by the low-angled light of spring and autumn. These dreamy landscapes capture the color, form and rhythmic patterns arising from the interaction of light and substance.
With masterful color-blending and brushwork, these fine oil paintings of serene farmhouses and rustic barns, off-season beach towns and weathered cottages, serve as a nostalgic tribute to a simpler, more essential American way of life.
A union of fine art and design where modernist forms are crisply delineated and cast in bold, saturated color. These geometrically stylized landscapes offer an intimacy of place and a visceral immediacy of the natural elements.
