The beautiful Firehouse Art Center historic building features a large exhibition space for premier artists and a smaller space for emerging talents. Exhibitions in the main gallery are confirmed one year in advance, while exhibitions in the Art Department can be confirmed throughout the year.

Artists that are interested in showing their work are invited to submit an ARTIST PROPOSAL for an individual or group show in any and all mediums, including contemporary art and installation. Our open submission policy allows any artist to submit their work to us at any time. Submitting to the Firehouse is an opportunity for Solo Exhibition space with a proposed theme of your choice. Sometimes we combine several artists into one exhibition.

All Colorado submissions will also be considered for the Curators Choice Showcase, featuring the best Colorado-based artists of the past year.

Criteria for Exhibitions

The following criteria are based on broad goals relating to the Firehouse Art Center mission which includes enriching the community through quality visual art exhibits. These criteria allow the artist to determine the appropriateness of the exhibit in meeting this mission. Any exhibit that the committee develops will be done so with these criteria in mind.

•The exhibit provides a unique and diverse art experience for the community.
•The exhibit has potential to attract a regional audience that ultimately expands the Art Center's audience base and increases awareness of the Art Center.
•The exhibit meets expectations based both on artistic excellence and the material's relationship to the audience of Longmont and Boulder County.
•The exhibit positively promotes area artists both professional and emerging.
•The exhibit appropriately uses the gallery space.
