SPECIAL EXHIBITION Honoring Our Firefighters

February 23 to April 4

The Firehouse Arts Center was home to Pleasanton’s first firefighters. This exhibition hearkens back to the original purpose of this building in an attempt to honor the generations of firefighters who served the community. Vincent Liu’s large format oil paintings depict firefighters in action and Robin Purcell’s watercolors are a series of landscapes she has painted on location since the devastating 2014 Mt. Diablo fire.

The artwork is on display in the lobby and hallway during the Firehouse Arts Center’s open hours and prior to theater events.

Come and meet the artists Wednesday, March 11, from 7-9 pm, and enjoy the Harrington Gallery’s abstract art exhibition, “Order & Chaos” while you are here.
