Happy Second Saturday, Beacon! This is one of the most action-packed Second Saturdays in recent memory: More than a dozen new shows are opening, so don’t delay - head out there and see some art! We’ve got the whole roundup in our Second Saturday Art Gallery Guide.
Notable: The sculptures around town of Beacon 3D are set to come down soon, probably end of November, so make sure you spot them all! Also in its waning days: Anthrotopographies, John Sabraw’s look at the effects of human development on natural places. A brand-spankin-new gallery is open with the Global Art Museum. At No. 3 Reading Room and Photo Book Works, artist Mariam Aziza Stephan and poet Julia Johnson will be at the gallery for a reception for their Hatched in the Drift. Longtime Beacon studio-gallery Maria Lago has new work up in her studio on the mountain side of Main Street. Hudson Valley photographer Randy Calderone has his first solo show, What I Saw, up at Oak Vino. And at Bau, photographer Meghan Spiro puts a face to the horror of domestic violence - and also recovery - in her Without Fear & Full of Love.
Full descriptions of all of these shows - and so very many more! Once you've figured out where to park, what's next? If you're in need of a bite to eat, check out the Restaurant Guide.
