Beacon Open Studios, the largest event of its kind in the Hudson Valley and growing, will hold its 4th annual city-wide event on Saturday and Sunday, April 28 & 29. This free event invites the public into local artists’ studios, allowing visitors to meet them, view their past and current works-in-progress, and get an up-close look at the spaces in which they create. A diverse network of artists will be participating, from nationally and internationally exhibited names to exciting new faces of the Beacon art community.

 Beacon Open Studios takes the unique approach that every artist should have the opportunity to publicly display their art, supported by promotion and events. Truck City, a pop-up open studio site introduced last year with great success returns this year at Spire Studios, 45 Beekman Street. Artists participating in Truck City will transform moving trucks into mobile galleries and installations, which will be open to visitors to explore during Beacon Open Studios hours from noon to 6pm.

Hudson Beach Gallery is pleased to host the Beacon Open Studios Kickoff Party on Friday April 27, from 7 to 10pm. The annual Kickoff Party is a great opportunity for the public to meet local artists and participants in Beacon Open Studios and pick up the Open Studios catalog, which includes a map to all of the participating studios across town.

An established art destination, Beacon is the perfect venue for this exceptional event showcasing over 50 very talented individuals.


Fri. April 27,  Kickoff Party 7-10pm at Hudson Beach Gallery 162 Main St., Beacon, NY

Sat. & Sun. April 28-29 studios are open throughout the city of Beacon from 12-6pm both days.
