This ArtWalk Weekend at the Firehouse

Firehouse Center for the Arts features Emily Corbato's photography exhibit, "Glorious Women" in the Firehouse Art Gallery through September 7. Meet the Artist during ArtWalk on Saturday, August 16, 3:30 - 5:30 PM.
Corbato's black and white photography documents women from many parts of the world, all engaged in ordinary daily activities. The universality of women's lives is apparent: in a city in Peru, or New York, or Martha's Vinyeard; sewing, shopping, laughing, enjoying Plum Island, Disneyland or Coney Island, the location on the globe can change but the experience does not. 

Visitors will have an opportunity to write their creative profiles of the women, or stories or poems about them, and submit them to the Firehouse gallery, on paper or by email. A panel of editors will read them all and select the five best which will be made available on the Firehouse website.
