Juried Exhibition at Firefly

In a world that has seemingly turned upside down this year, we have sheltered in our homes and expressed our feelings with creativity. Our next show at the Darcy Center for the Arts will be Out of Isolation.

What some of our students have to say about our workshops

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 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, Toni


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!



The Firefly Artists are thrilled to display "Out of Isolation" in our Darcy Center for the Arts located right above our Main Firefly Artists Gallery in Northport.

The Firefly Artists is pleased to announce the first juried exhibition in their *NEW* Darcy Center for the Arts on the second floor their Northport gallery: “Out of Isolation.”

In a world seemingly turned upside down, we have sheltered in our homes and expressed our feelings with creativity. “Out of Isolation” shares artwork created during the Covid-19 pandemic and the stories behind those expressions. As 2020 comes to a close, we are coming together to honor our experience and salute our resilience; celebrating the creative spirit and how we, as artists, adapt and respond to turbulent circumstances. 

The exhibition will run from December 1, 2020 through February 14, 2021. The Darcy Center is located on the second floor of The Firefly Artists, 162 Main Street, Northport, NY. Darcy Center hours are currently Saturdays, from 5:30-8pm, with an Open House Opening Reception scheduled during main Firefly Artist gallery hours January 8-10. (11am-8pm Fri and Saturday, 11am-5pm Sunday).

*Note: Our gallery is located in a historic building and we apologize that there is no handicap access to this exhibit on the second floor.
