With two floors of ballroom sized gallery spaces and artist studios, this burgeoning group of artists has been in this space since 2004 taking over the abandoned lace factory building. For a time it was also home to an electrical components firm called “Firing Circuits” whose name is still displayed on the building and hence it became the name of the artist space. The artists are juried in by committee and there is a waiting list for studio space.
“Artists love to work out of lofts and this really gives us an authentic loft experience,” Sue Brown Gordon (one of the artists) states. “This space takes away inhibition about being messy while creating arts. And what’s really wonderful about this is that there is a camaraderie and fellowship among the artists. It’s almost as though they are having a dialogue with one another through their art.”
This event is free and open to the public. The studios are not handicapped accessible.
Participating Artists: Peg Benison, Cecilia Moy Fradet, Mindy Green, Susan Grissom, Mari Gyargyey, Elisa Keogh, Lydia Larson, Emily Laux, Cate Leach, Susan Leggitt, Pam Lindberg, Mary Manning, Claudia Mengel, Mary Elizabeth Peterson, Valerie Rovins, Mark Schiff, Karen Vogel, Rachel Volpone, Brian Walker, Nancy Woodward, Marc Zaref.
