FireFly is Wild Arts Collective's bi-weekly summer weekend gathering series. It is an ever-evolving nature-based experience designed to connect artists and acrobats with the earth.
Wild Art's Collective's Garden Gallery serves as a nexus for flyers, painters, fire artists, and gardeners alike. Centered near the Rail Trail Cafe, Stone Mountain Farm's dance stage, and 5th Wall's outdoor fly stage, the Garden Gallery plays host to a variety of people passionate about art and the environment.
Every weekend features a rotating display of visual art curated by Amelia Modlin. If you are interested in displaying your art or hosting a makers workshop please email us here.
The Garden Gallery opens at noon on Saturday and Sunday during FireFly weekends. Please help us respect this artist's oasis by respecting our neighbors and acting as stewards of the land.

Connected through a shared mentor this past winter, this group of artists spent an intensive week together on Zoom exploring collage, photomontage, and other techniques that could be done with found materials at a small kitchen table during stay-at-home precautions. This collectively-curated exhibition is an interactive exploration into our constructions of reality.

How Are We Different?
On any given FireFly weekend, you might stumble upon an art show/workshop, a horticultural demonstration, guided nature walks, flying trapeze artists catching as the sun sets, live folk music at the cafe, fire-spinning performances, impromptu DJ dance parties under starlight,
or an epic bonfire.
Our family-friendly list of experiences are ever-changing, accessible, and affordable.
Please help us share this with others by respecting the land we call home in a "Leave No Trace" manner, and consider donating your time to our Carbon Negative/Community Positive ethos.

FireFly serves as a platform to lift up our community.
