The Firehouse Cultural Center’s Firehouse Pub has an eclectic lineup of entertainment for the community this February. Georgia Vahue, Executive Director for the Firehouse Cultural Center said, “Our talent comes from Florida, the United States and throughout the world.”
Fans of artist Georgia O’Keefe can come to Theatre: Georgia O’Keefe Pioneer, an original piece by Anna Brennen and Midge Mamatas for two shows. The first will be held on Saturday, February 9 from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. The Second will be as a matinee on Sunday, February 10 from 3 to 5 p.m.
Viewers of the film will catch an intimate glimpse into the life of this iconic artist. O’Keefe was a pioneer of modern art. She created large scale paintings of natural forms and flowers.
