Storefront Comes to Life with Book Signing by Photographer Ronnie Farley


For those who like to find tucked away events that may fly past your radar, then the book signing (dare I call it a pop-up book signing?) by renowned photographer Ronnie Farley is for you. It takes place over October's Second Saturday weekend, Saturday, October 14, and Sunday, October 15, from noon to 8 pm. The storefront space is that of the designer Gwenno James, and is across from The Roundhouse, and down the street from Dogwood.

Ronnie has just released a new photo book "documenting the 'chemtrails' (albedo modification) and other geoengineering effects on the atmosphere in the lower Hudson Valley in New York," according to her website. Books, prints, paintings and T-shirts by Ronnie will be available. This is your chance to get art that is otherwise hard to find. You'll also get exposure to a special performance by Craig Chin of Errant Space: Ambient Soundscapes from 5 to 7 pm.

Ronnie lives in Beacon, and is a well-respected and documented photographer. If you'd like to experience some inspiration, check out her body of work below (and check out her impactful portrait photography here). This may push you over the edge to add this book signing to your to-see list for a wildly busy Second Saturday (we have the full Second Saturday Guide for you here!).
