Mark your calendars for Sept 24-25

Beacon Open Studios is coming up

Mark your calendars for the last weekend of September. Beacon Open Studiosis back! Over 60 artists all over Beacon will be opening up their studios to you for the most important art event of the year. Pick up a catalog to find a map that will guide you around town. Catalogs can be found at Hudson Beach Glass, RiverWinds Gallery, Beacon Bagel, The Beacon Natural Market and many other Main St. businesses.

Begin your weekend at Hudson Beach Glass located at 162 Main St. which serves at the weekend’s headquarters along with RiverWinds Gallery. The Hudson Beach Glass gallery is host to the Kickoff Exhibition featuring a single work from each of the participating artists. The HQ Annex and an extension of the Kickoff Exhibition can be found a few doors down at Riverwinds Gallery 170 Main St.

Art in the Face of Hard Times-Truck City is a special part of this year’s Open Studios not to be missed. In response to the universal conundrum that artists face of space and affordability, many artists are renting moving trucks and creating their own pop-up studios. Come to 45 Beekman St. in the parking lot of Spire Studios to see this 2-day only manifestation of ingenuity and resourcefulness.

The weekend of art begins with the annual Kickoff Party on Friday September 23rd  from 7-10pm. Everyone is invited to come and mingle, enjoy a beverage and have a great time at the Kickoff Party located in the gallery of the Kickoff Show at Hudson Beach Glass 162 Main St. All studios will be open from noon-6pm Saturday and Sunday September 24-25.
