Our Fireflies have traded in their elving gear for Cupid bows! For the last month, they’ve been bringing in lovely things — cards, a wide array of  jewelry, paintings and photos, pretty pottery, lovely felted wool things…so much more. The glasswork is divine. Come find that unique and perfect gift for yourself or someone you care for.

We’re also a great place to stop in with a love, savor the art, perhaps chat with an artist or two and find that perfect thing together… Come see! 

Our address is 162 Main Street, Northport. We’re open:

Tues – Thurs, 11am-6pm

Fri – Sat 11am-8pm

Sunday 11-5.

We’re usually closed on Mondays but will be open Valentine’s Day until at least 6pm!

About The Firefly

The Firefly Artists was established in 2011 to create a gallery setting for local artists. It is a space where artists can meet, collaborate, and sell their beautiful creations. Over the past decade, we have been privileged to display a stunning variety of work by hundreds of local and regional artists, both in our Main Street locations and in pop-up galleries throughout the community.

We boast some extraordinary talent, while maintaining a very down to earth and supportive atmosphere that is unique to Long Island. Every time you shop at The Firefly, you help make sure we can continue to serve local artists and people like you who appreciate them. Now, you’ve made us the Best Art Gallery on Long Island. Thank you!!!

The Philosophy That Guides Us

We’ve been reflecting quite a bit as we endeavor to develop this communications platform centered on our Synchronicity Network Newsletter. Our mission, as currently understood, is this:

“The mission of Synchronicity Planning & Communications is to serve and celebrate folks who care for art, science and the common good, improving the quantity and quality of community engagement on Long Island via a networking and communications platform centered on the Synchronicity Network and its Flagship Newsletter.”

Digging deeper, we ask ourselves WHY? For her part, Katie has offered the following:

Artist Profile: An Original Firefly – Kate Sydney

Dr. Kate Creasey-Krainer seems as much an elegant permaculturalist, dedicated to environmental health and sustainability, as she is a highly trained and published plant geneticist. She believes that science is only as good as the integrity of the science communication with those of us who aren’t experts.

Guest Post by Jed Morey: We’re Not Here for Long. Let’s Do Better. Together.

Photo of soaring gull by Katheryn Laible

A couple of days ago I joined the chorus of self-righteous outrage and posted the image of the now infamous MAGA hat wearing kid and Indian activist face-to-face.
