Darryl's Women's Clothing Boutique
155 Main Street

In Darryl's Clothing Boutique now is the line, Petit Pois, by Vivian G, an American designer with a European flair who produces her collection in the USA.  She is known for her eclectic mix of prints and patterns in light weight mesh fabrics that are unique to her designs. While the fabrics are part of her signature, they are the secret to packing for travel, as they do not wrinkle and take up minimal space when packed for a weekend get-away or vacation.

Happening This Weekend - 6/28/2019

We know that Beacon’s fireworks are June 29, but what we didn’t realize is that Saturday, June 29, is actually here - as in tomorrow. Maybe that’s because of the time-speed issue our publisher talks about in her column at our friends the Highlands Current.

Start looking for them - summer is high time for shop openings in Beacon, like the Crafty Hammer’s Grand Opening this weekend on South Chestnut Street, across from Rite Aid! Everything you see in the shop, they have built. And their DIY Workshops are going to get you handy too! Plus there will be power drill-shaped cookies. Their flair for DIY is no joke, and their love for you readers is strong, as they are a main sponsor of our Classes and Events Guides! See you there!

Darryl's Women's Clothing Boutique
155 Main Street
www.darrylsny.com

No doubt you've walked or driven by this fresh window display lately. Now it's time to go inside Darryl's, to check out the styles for yourself. We found a bathing suit cover-up that will work perfectly at the Beacon Pool. (It's technically a dress... but does that really matter?) From flouncy to fringe, you'll find it in Darryl's. Located across the street from Hudson Beach Glass.


 
Luxe Optique
183 Main Street

www.luxeoptique.com
These Anne & Valentin frames just came in, and have already been favorites with many. As you can see from the photo, the frames are simply stunning. Delicate, yet will stay solidly on your face. You must try them on, to see what we mean about the effect they will have around your eyes.

And don't forget, the eye doctor is in at Luxe Optique! Schedule your appointment, but walk in any time to shop frames.

Happening This Weekend - 5/24/2019

Wishing you the best Memorial Day Weekend, and a sunlit slide into summer! Will you be wearing white pants? Darryl's can certainly give you more colorful options, as can many stores on Main Street in A Little Beacon Blog's Shopping Guide. Stop into their neighbor, Knot Too Shabby, to get gorgeous furniture paint and stencils as you start a new summer project. Owner Caryn is an amazing furniture painter and can give you tips! And here's one more hot tip: To-go wine sippy cups (for lack of a better word) are at Beacon Natural right now, located in the middle of Main Street near the post office. Get your drink in a stemless glass, but in a to-go cup with lid!

Pick up a brochure map in different stores around town, or click here to visit Beacon Open Studios' map and have it open as you walk around. This year they have created Studio Tour lists, which are suggested micro-lists of artists to hit up in a group. This is helpful for those who can't decide who to visit.

Sneak Peek Into Beacon Open Studios 2019 - Kickoff Is This Weekend!

Time: Noon to 6 pm
Location: Citywide in Beacon, NY!
Get the map online, or find their brochure in stores!

While Beacon celebrates its local artists all year long, the Beacon Open Studios weekend is special because once a year, the artists of Beacon open their art studios to the public. This free, citywide, weekend-long event has become one of the largest of its kind in the Hudson Valley. A Little Beacon Blog is happy to once again be a sponsor for Beacon Open Studios, the weekend of May 17-19, 2019.

Sneak Peek Into Performances and Art

The artists have been promoting their studios and exhibits in anticipation of this weekend. A few interesting pieces crossed our inbox, so we’re spotlighting them here on the blog.

Visit the Beacon Open Studios website for a directory and map of participating artists, and you can plan out your visits. The organizers even offer four different tour suggestions to help you navigate through the area. You can also pick up a brochure and map at various businesses along Main Street. You can also wing it on your own, and just follow the red dots that will be all over the city.

A-Y/Dancers Perform at KuBe (aka the Old Beacon High School)

Included with the open studios will be a live performance from the A-Y/Dancers at the KuBe Theater in the old Beacon High School on Saturday, May 18, at 5 pm and 7 pm. They will also perform at the Ethan Cohen Gallery beforehand in the hallway.

As part of their inaugural season, A-Y/Dancers licensed a unique “MinEvent” from the Merce Cunningham Trust. The performance, titled “Embodied Time: A Collaborative Performance,” is an arrangement of excerpts from works that Cunningham choreographed across three decades, from the ‘60s to the ‘90s, strung together by Jean Freebury, a former member of the Merce Cunningham Dance Company. A unique score composed and performed by sound artist Mark Trecka will consist of audio recordings of the dancers’ bodies during rehearsals, transferred to cassette, but into loops, and amplified back into the room in real time. In a synchronistic approach, artist Joseph Ayers created a unique animation that samples the dancers’ movements recorded during rehearsals, and then projects the resulting abstraction as a backdrop to the live performance.

Having a hard time imagining all of that? Below is a teaser video of what you will see live on Saturday!

3 Artists at Caiming Cheung’s Studio

Sexy mama! Ladies, dry eyes are no joke, especially when you're tired. If you're wearing your glasses more and more (and skipping the contacts), maybe it's time for prescription sunglasses, available at Luxe Optique. These frames are from the French eyewear designer Anne & Valentin. Luxe is really good at using colored lenses, like the faded purple you see here, or traditional black, or even mirror. For Mother's Day, enjoy a glass of champagne with them!

Happening This Weekend - 5/3/2019

This weekend includes some popular annual events, such as Crafts at Lyndhurst in Tarrytown, the Cupcake Festival at Stormville Airport, and celebrating the centennial of Pete Seeger at various Beacon venues. And whoa! There are a lot of runs this weekend! Get your running shoes on.

What you won't want to miss is the Pete Seeger-inspired song circle happening down on the Hudson River at the Beacon Sloop Club from 2 to 4 pm. The friendly musicians from Jake's Main Street Music, who played with Pete many times, encourage everyone to come down and bring their instrument and/or voice to join in and sing by the river.

If you're new to Pete Seeger and his involvement with the Hudson River, and why there is a celebration of him, know this: He is one of the biggest reasons the Hudson River is being cleaned up. Carrying on his legacy helps ensure that the river stays protected, and that cleaning continues even when corporations who caused damage want to pull out. Read this journalist's feature about Seeger in Hudson Valley Magazine after he died.

The Beacon Sloop Club is down by the Metro-North train station. It's on the west side of it, literally right next to the Hudson River. It's quite relaxing, so even if you don't sing, do go down and enjoy.
