All the Details

The Firehouse Art Studios and Gallery is as eclectic as the history of its building and the neighborhood surrounding it, for which "the Firehouse" has always been an important part. Its eclectic nature is shown in the art it displays, the artists that are a part of its community, the patrons that support it, and the energy it fosters in community development. The Firehouse was once the Meadowbrook Fire Station Number 20, proudly built in 1928 by the then prominent Fort Worth architect Wiley G. Clarkson in the traditional cottage style to blend in with the east Fort Worth Meadowbrook neighborhood. As the neighborhood flourished, the little firehouse no longer met the needs of the community and the firefighters relocated. Since the 1980s the firehouse has been a church, a wedding chapel, and a photography studio. Today, the Firehouse is known as a place where the neighborhood "owns the art," a place that does not quench the fire of creativity but instead ignites it. A place where community and artists come together - to appreciate art, support humanitarian values, and learn. Lori and Keith Thomson brought new life to the Firehouse when they opened the Firehouse Studios and Gallery in 2003. They make a great team and compliment each other in their individual artistic styles. Lori has a more contemporary vision, while Keith is more classically inspired. This comes together to offer the neighborhood something fresh and challenging - to light the embers of creativity in the community. They share a common goal to open the Firehouse to every type of art and to create an understanding of all artistic expression. Information from the gallery's site
