BeaconArts Member Show

Opening reception
Saturday, July 13, 6 – 9pm

Hudson Beach Gallery
162 Main Street, Beacon

BeaconArts is pleased to present the first annual Member Show opening July 13 at Hudson Beach Gallery. The exhibition is organized by current BeaconArts Co-President Karlyn Benson and former President Theresa Gooby. The show features 70 BeaconArts member artists and runs through Sunday, August 4. There will be an opening reception on Saturday, July 13 from 6 – 9pm.

The BeaconArts Member show is open to all BeaconArts members and is an opportunity for members to share their work with each other and the community. Artists were invited to submit up to three works and Theresa and Karlyn curated the show from these submissions. The resulting exhibition is a diverse mix of subject matter, artistic styles, and mediums including painting, drawing, photography, sculpture, ceramics, and jewelry. The Member Show highlights the broad range of artistic practice in our community. BeaconArts would like to thank Hudson Beach Glass for hosting the show in their gallery. (more…)

Beacon 3d

The mission of Beacon 3D is to promote the arts in a public venue for the enjoyment of the community at large as well as to provide established and emerging artists with the opportunity to present their large-scale creations in a 5-month long annual installation.

Heathers The Musical (High School Edition) is the darkly delicious story of Veronica Sawyer, a brainy, beautiful teenage misfit who hustles her way into the most powerful and ruthless clique at Westerberg High: the Heathers. But before she can get comfortable atop the high school food chain, Veronica falls in love with the dangerously handsome new kid J.D. When Heather Chandler, the Almighty, kicks her out of the group, Veronica decides to bite the bullet and kiss Heather’s aerobicized butt… but J.D. has another plan for that bullet.

Heathers High School Edition is for mature audiences and contains adult themes. It may not be appropriate for kids under 14.
