The Firefly Artists- Voted Best Gallery 2022 has lost our lease and are forced to move.
The bad news is, Firefly was forced to hire an attorney to protect our gallery and our artists when our landlords decided to challenge the lease that they themselves had originally written. Firefly’s mission for the past 11 years has been to support our Long Island Artists and give back to our community. Our goal has always been to give as much of our sales back to our exhibiting artists. Unfortunately, we have exhausted all of our reserve funds in order to pay our legal fees. We cannot afford to fight our landlord any longer (even though we were sure we would win if we went to court). We will be closing our doors at 162 Main Street, Northport as of September 30th.

Testimonials from our workshop students

Just wanted to let you know that Andy Evansen’s workshop was wonderful. ClapBlushNot only do I appreciate his looser painting style (if only I could paint looser…lol) but he is a good teacher…explained what he was doing and why… and repeated it so we had a chance to really grasp it. Cant wait until we can do an in-person several day workshop with him..

Thank you and the Firefly for arranging this workshop and others. It is greatly appreciated.

Painterly yours,

Thank you Jan for bringing yesterday’s amazing workshop to us. Although I have heard everything Andy had to say before in different workshops, it is finally starting to make sense. Andy has a unique way of making these concepts palatable. He is really a great teacher. This workshop inspired me to take out the books I’ve collected on watercolor painting and to revisit and practice all of the techniques I’ve learned and forgotten along the way. I am also going to make a concentrated effort to do value studies as they are so important to beginning painters such as myself. I can’t thank you enough for mentoring and nurturing me as an artist. I am forever grateful!
