This free, city-wide art event invites the public into local artists’ studios, allowing visitors to chat with artists, view past and current works-in-progress, and get an up-close look at the spaces in which they create.
In order to minimize costs for all participating artists, Beacon Open Studio
s is pleased to announce a fundraising art party extravaganza: 20/twenty
. 20 artists. 20 artworks. 20 chances. 20 bucks.
Hosted by the feisty and vivacious Miss Trixie Star, this fun-filled evening will culminate in a raffle that no art lover will want to miss. Each $20 donation entitles guests to 20 raffle tickets and 20 chances to win one—or more—of 20 original artworks donated by 20 talented local artists. Admission also includes a special “Double Vision” cocktail from the cash bar.
