Happening This Weekend - 5/17/2019

Beacon's long awaited, first interactive art event of the Spring season has arrived - Beacon Open Studios. This weekend, dozens of artists open their homes or studios to you so that you can see their work, and see how they work. Pick up a brochure map in different stores around town, or click here to visit their map and have it open as you walk around. This year they have created Studio Tour lists, which is a suggested micro-list of artists to hit up in a group. This is helpful for those who can't decide who to visit. Read up on the different artists here before you head out.

Lots to do this weekend! Happy planning.
Sponsored by Antalek and Moore for car insurance.

Tin Shingle
Did you ever wonder why or how someone got featured in a magazine or newspaper? If you have competition, or even a business or person who you admire - when they "get good ink" as the term goes when something is written about in a publication - was that just something wonderful that happened ot them? Most likely not. They most likey "pitched" the media outlet with a good angle or story idea. Tin Shingle teachers business owners, artists and makers how to do this. And can teach you too.
