Happening This Weekend - 1/11/2019

Happy Sunshine!!
TGIF, and we highly encourage you to have a dance party with yourself in your office or at home. Celebrate the weekend.

It's the first Second Saturday of 2019, and the art galleries in Beacon have really good exhibitions to show you. In these cold winter months, do you know where it is the coziest? In an Beacon art gallery on an opening day/night, and the days after. Take yourself on a walking tour of Beacon's art galleries anytime with the help of A Little Beacon Blog's Guide.

Second Saturday Art Gallery Sneak Preview

Those who loved Theo Ganz Studio (it has since closed its storefront, replaced by the boutique Lauren + Riley) have a chance to see the curator's efforts, Eleni Smolen, at Hudson Beach Glass with The imPerfect Poetics of Place, in which a dozen artists explore diverse landscapes, from big sky to big city, via hologram, photographs, paint, sculpture and drawing. Participating artists include Joseph Ayers, Samantha Beste, Cathy Cook, Jill Enfield, Elana Goren, Kevin Kearns, Meelia Kelly, Flynn Larsen, Herman Roggeman, Ooloosie Saila, Emma Tapley, as well as “anonymous creatures.”

Time: 11 am to 3 pm
Location: The Blushery, 528 Main St., Beacon, NY



Luxe Optique

183 Main Street
(across Cliff Street from Beacon Bread Company)
In your hand, this line of minimalist Japanese luxury eyewear is extremely light and precious - as precious as the metal used in the frames' design. 10 eyevan is the name of this collection (see all of the frames here) and they use solid Japanese titanium, plated with heavy metal gold and silver. Solid sterling silver is on the temple to balance the frame, and the nose pads are made from mother of pearl. Ultimate luxury. Go in to Luxe Optique to hold a pair yourself to see what we mean.

L a M è r e Clothing + Goods
436 Main Street
The first of several pop-up shops from L a M è r e starts this weekend! L a M è r e has partnered with The Blushery - the makeup and beauty lounge located down a few blocks on Main Street - to bring you a shopping experience at The Blushery (528 Main Street) from 11 am to 3 pm. Exclusive merchandise will be available, including shoes, purses, coats, and more. L a M è r e's regular shop will be open as usual, should you want more from the store. Sip, Shop and Beautify with these girls!
