Dia:Beacon

Opens May 5, 2019

Dia:Beacon
3 Beekman Street, Beacon

A pioneer of the Mono-ha movement in Japan, Lee Ufan developed a sculptural practice in the 1960s that explored the tension between natural and man-made materials and the dialogue between object and space. In 1972 he changed the titles of the works that he had made up to that point to Relatum, referring to a concept in Heideggerian philosophy, which conveyed the artist’s interest in contingent circumstances.

The exhibition at Dia:Beacon, resulting from close collaboration with the artist, will showcase Dia’s 2017 acquisition of three sculptural works by Lee – Relatum (formerly System, 1969), Relatum (formerly Language, 1971), and Relatum (1974)—alongside several important loans.

Collaborative Concepts is all about Large Sculptural Art Works; think Storm King, but with a herd of cattle! The combination of the two makes a great interaction of animals with art.

Experimental art is encouraged. The result of combining art with animals, however, is hard to predict. It never creates repetition, only surprises and discoveries of how the two interact with each other. The cows have been great critics of the sculptures each year, having favorites and some that they serenade.

New work by Emil Alzamora.

September 14, 5:00pm - 8:00pm


No. Three Reading Room & Photo Book Works
469 Main Street, Beacon

On view in the Reading Room are 18 works on paper selected from the larger body of work by Mariam Aziza Stephan. Small, intimate 6 x 18” drawings; India ink on paper, but paper that has been cut open and reassembled with additions and deletions, like the sacrifice zones they represent. Each poem by Julia Johnson is numbered to accompany its corresponding image. Of her project, the artist Mariam Aziza Stephan states: “This work is about loss. The drawings serve as mediations and records of both places and states that either no longer exist or are in the process of disappearing. These constructed landscapes piece together fragmented scenes of conflict, abandonment and disarray and attempt to link ecological and psychological upheaval.” Also on display and available for reading are books that have informed or relate to the artist’s and poet’s work. Novels, photobooks, poetry and essays on the notion of place and displacement are featured. Ongoing through October 27th.

September 14, 5:00pm - 7:00pm


Howland Public Library
313 Main Street, Beacon

The Howland Public Library invites you to the opening of the Second Annual Spirit of Beacon Exhibit. HPL and the Spirit of Beacon Committee asked the community to submit photos they felt captured the essence of the “Spirit of Beacon.” Is it the people, the connection to the river, the historical buildings, the beautiful mountains, all of the above, or something else? This year more than 30 local photographers answered the call. Stop by the library on Saturday, September 14th, from 5-7pm to see their visions of the Beacon in this annual community “portrait” of the City of Beacon. The exhibit, curated by Michelle Rivas and Jennifer Blakeslee, opens on September 14th and will be on view through October 6th.

The Howland Public Library is centrally located at 313 Main Street in Beacon, NY. For more information go to beaconlibrary.org. Ongoing through October 6.

RiverWinds Gallery
172 Main Street, Beacon

Opening Reception

Presenting “Both Sides Now: New Work by Virginia Donovan.” Donovan explains the dichotomy, “In the past couple of years, I have been working back and forth between contemporary painting in acrylics and more traditional landscape paintings in oils. While the two may seem totally different, I find that each inspires the other. In both genres, I am working with brush and knife and looking to affect texture. But it is more than that… The landscape paintings tend to be of places I have loved, that really spoke to me and added roots to my life. In the contemporary work, I am paying attention to feelings and events that have moved me and grounded me.” Ongoing through October 6, 2019.

 

September 14, 6:00pm - 9:00pm

bau: Beacon Artists Union
506 Main Street, Beacon

Opening Reception

Whether you find yourself seeking solace away or at home, September’s two solo artists Joan Phares and Andrew Rust Barger have you covered.

In Gallery 1:  Joan’s exhibit “Beached” includes a collection of paintings and assemblages on wood along with a series of boats, ships, water features, and dwellings. The artwork she created for Beached is an attempt to portray imagined lives, buildings, and vessels that inhabited historic coastal towns and cities. Her inspirations for the exhibit are from diverse sources. This past year Joan spent a lot of time on Cape Cod. The harbors of working boats and antique humble homes with intriguing pasts housed the creators of unique towns and stories that peaked her imagination. Says Joan, “Simultaneously binge watching far too many episodes of the PBS series Doc Martin set in the fictitious village of Portwenn, Cornwall, England, further inspired my current work. Infusing my penchant for the darker less tangible aspects of life inspired by found objects provided the final impetus for this show.”

In Gallery 2: Andrew Rust Barger invites you to sit a spell on his “Porch” in Gallery 2.  The American porch is a space of community, inclusion, and friendship. The Porch lives in a space between the privacy of the home and the visibility in the community. There is an importance to be present and visible within one’s locality and the porch can serve as that medium. Andrew says, “Along with highlighting and promoting the porch as a community spotlight, I have built a modular moveable structure to grant me the ability to install a porch wherever I want and with it, the concepts that exist within the porch. The porch is an all-embracing space for everybody, something that has become more and more important daily.”

In the Beacon Room: A collection of small works under 12” by BAU artists.

This is the 177th consecutive exhibition at BAU Gallery. For more information contact Carla Goldberg- PR manager, 845 222-0177 or goldbergstudioart@gmail.com

University Settlement Camp Theatre

Beacon Fairy Walk is a walking theatre production incorporating Beacon’s beautiful landscape. Local artists and community members create a magical path that follows a story set in a hidden Fairy grove within Beacon’s University Settlement Camp.

Eight actors play characters representing different parts of the forest. For example, Spruce is the Fairy of the Trees and keeps watch over the forest while helping the other Fairies stay grounded. The show explores the themes of conflict resolution, finding one’s voice, friendship, and doing what’s right in the face of fear. When the Worry Witches start to steal the fairy dust from the trees, will the Fairies come together to restore the color and magic to Beacon? Come see the show to find out!
