A fundraiser for Beacon Open Studios
March 26, 2011    7-10pm
4 South Chestnut St. (Shambhala Yoga Center)
Beacon, NY 12508

Beacon Open Studios is now in its third year—and growing.

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 Studios 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.

Some of the artists who will be donating artworks to 20/twenty are:
Ed Benavente, Kate Daley, Michael Gaydos, Bo Gehring, Theresa Gooby, Liam Goodman, Linda Hubbard, Tom Huber, Peter Iannarelli, Hiro Ichikawa, Jinni James, Margot Kingon, Michelle Rivas, Steve Rossi, Chip Schwartz, Ed Vermehren, Amy C. Wilson

Beacon Open Studios’ 20/twenty fundraiser will be held on March 26, 2011 from 7 to 10pm at 4 South Chestnut St. (Shambhala Yoga Center) in Beacon, NY.

This year’s Beacon Open Studios is scheduled for the weekend of September 24-25, 2011. Participating artists include nationally and internationally exhibited names as well as those who will be showing their work for the first time. Interested artists may sign up for Beacon Open Studios beginning March 1st. Check the website for more details about how to get involved.

Beacon is a burgeoning art destination, and last year’s event featured more than eighty local artists and artisans, making it the largest event of its kind in the Hudson Valley.
