"Mounting this project every year takes an enormous amount of coordination, energy and time," says BeaconArts president, Kelly Ellenwood. Your contribution in any amount will make a difference!

This is Stanley Lindwasser. Stanley is an artist. He enjoys being in his studio painting and marveling at the Hudson Valley sunsets as they inspire his work. But he's also a go-getter. This is a picture of him as he passes out flyers he made to promote his most recent show, and he's dropping one off at Tin Shingle's office in A Little Beacon Space. He also hired Tin Shingle to write and distribute his press release to a select group of local media. Tin Shingle has a DIY promotion membership platform, but they can also be hired guns. We call them Buzz Builders.
