Mark your calendars and plan to visit Beacon the second weekend of May for a self guided tour of over 50 artist’s studios. This free, citywide, weekend long event kicks off on Friday, May 12 at Oak Vino Wine Bar on Main Street, with an opening party and reception featuring the artworks of all participating artists. Saturday and Sunday, May 13 and 14 studios are open to the public between 12 and 6pm. Easy to follow signs and maps will be available throughout town.
Each year thousands of visitors come to Beacon for Open Studios. It is one of the largest events of its kind in the Hudson Valley. It’s a rare opportunity for the public to experience the private working spaces of a multitude of diverse artists. Visitors are invited to view works in progress and talk to individual artists, including some nationally and internationally exhibited names. For art lovers, dealers, collectors, and curators, Beacon Open Studios is a great way to discover new talents, make worthwhile connections, and purchase artwork directly from the artists.
This year Beacon Open Studios falls on Second Saturday, another longstanding community event, where shops stay open late, and local art galleries, restaurants and bars host openings, tastings and music performances. For a full listing of participating artists and to pick up a free color catalog and map, stop by Hudson Beach Glass at 162 Main Street, open daily 10-6, Sundays 11-6.
