Abandoned Haunts & Curious Trappings

Abandoned Haunts & Curious Trappings is a juried exhibition of hauntingly beautiful photography of abandoned spaces and 3D works that complement this eerie theme. exhibition October 12 – November 7 in the Darcy Arts Center located on the second floor of The Firefly Artist Gallery in Northport, NY. The Firefly is honored to have Matthew Christopher of “Abandoned America” serving as the juror for this exhibition. Matthew’s journey to document abandoned sites began a decade ago while researching the decline of the state hospital system. Realizing that words alone could not adequately convey the harsh realities of institutional care, Matthew embarked on a journey to visit and photograph the crumbling state schools and asylums in our midst.

The Darcy Center for the Arts

Located on the second floor of our gallery, the Darcy Arts Center is home to special art shows, juried exhibitions and our art education initiatives. Our art classes and workshops feature talented local instructors as well as world renowned visiting artists. The Darcy Arts Center is fondly named for Firefly Jim Darcy and his deeply talented, dearly missed son US Navy Intelligence Specialist James “Patrick” Darcy. Jim Darcy has been an integral part of the gallery since we started over a decade ago, and we wouldn’t still be around if it wasn’t for his contributions and inspiration. The beautiful upstairs gallery is filled with natural sunlight and a perfect place for Firefly to hold special exhibitions, host workshops and special events. If you are interested in renting the Darcy Arts Center for your own event, please contact us. Check our website and Facebook page to watch for upcoming exhibitions and workshops.

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,
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!
