Firefly Lights: Kindred Spirits

Come to our community-oriented gallery created by and for local artists at 162 Main St, Northport. We’re open Tues-Thurs 11am-6pm, Fri and Sat 11am-8pm and Sun 11am-5pm. There is ALWAYS something new on the wall, and often being created on site! Send Katie an email if you’d like to meet up down there!

We are soooo thrilled to have found ourselves actually GROWING over the past year, creating new space where we can host full-scale special exhibitions, classes and events!

Now on View in our *New* Darcy Center for the Arts: “Kindred Spirits” This exhibition of the NYS Art Teachers’ Association (NYSATA) will run April 11-April 25

The show is beautiful…and if you know anything about the Firefly you know that even though it’s technically not “our” show, the exponential impact of our dear Queen of Education is one of the primary things on display here. Beth Atkinson will quickly tell you how it’s not about her, and how much she loves and is inspired by her students and the amazing things they do…it’s really cool…

Given Beth’s propensity for helping people learn to be more themselves, we bet you can’t guess who her students are! Except of course, fellow Managing Partner Drigo Morin, whom she’s partnered with as her own “Kindred Spirit”…tho you can still see they’re very different artists! We love them….

Next up: “Honey I Shrunk the Art!” We’re filling the gallery with mini masterpieces! Running from May 1- May 30, we’ll have an Open House Reception May 8th!

Firefly Lights!

First, Long Island’s Best: Share these amazing High School artists far and wide, would you? These kids are amazing. We at The Firefly Artists in Northport were honored to be among those giving a few of them scholarships. These kids should have gallery receptions and award ceremonies. At the very least, we can plaster them all over the internet. Follow the Heckscher Museum to see the awards ceremony and find more great stuff to share.

Meanwhile, as a Managing Partner of the Firefly, Katie has crafted a “Firefly Lights newsletter to send our love and care, assist our dear fellow Fireflies in marketing their wares, and share some of the ways our amazing artists have been lighting up our lives lately….Please enjoy and let us know what you think!

If you wish to receive these, please let us know – folks on our regular newsletter list are NOT automatically receiving them!

We look forward to crafting another soon — can’t fit all our amazing artists into just one!!! Do check out our page: The Firefly Artists and our brand new group, The Firefly Artists Gallery & Community Square, where our artists can speak for themselves and post art for sale!

It’s not the same as getting to gather in our beautiful gallery, but it’s something we hope continues to grow!

We asked. Here’s what you told us! We warmly encourage you to join us in celebration of Small Business Saturday every day by going out and supporting Long Island local businesses. This list barely scratches the surface of favorite local places that only exist because people like us spend money there. We’ll keep updating it and encourage folks to keep adding to it. We’re thankful for every one!

Shop Down Town — It’s Worth It!

Main St, Northport

Shopping on Main Street, Northport the other day was a terrific experience. This downtown has been a favorite of mine for many years. It has waterfront, history, a beautiful park, and lots of shops and restaurants. At the top of the road is The Engeman Theater, which imports Broadway talent to Long Island. I used to go to the 99 cent movies there. Raise your hand if you did, too.
