In 2004, a group of 3-dimensional artists led by sculptor Lane Laffoon, with the help of sculptor Tuck Langland, were looking for a building with enough space for a small foundry, metal working, ceramics, and a gallery area. Thirteen artists pooled their money and invested a great deal of sweat equity into the building on the corner of Colfax and Sycamore streets.
Fire Arts provides a well-equipped studio and space to create work, a showroom to share it with the community, workshops and a mentoring program to broaden your skills, and a gathering place for shared values, ideas, support, and friendship.
Currently Fire Arts gallery space is closed to the public due to COVID-19, but shared studio space to create 3-D work such as pottery, sculpture, jewelry, and more, is open and available for experienced student artists for a special rate of $50/mo. More information is available at fireartsinc.com.
