The Beacon Arts Community Association will celebrate its 10th anniversary at a benefit in the Waterfall Room at The Roundhouse at Beacon Falls on Nov. 1, 5:30 – 7:30 p.m.
BeaconArts will honor at the event three individuals who have played vital roles in supporting the arts in Beacon. Thom Joyce is a long-time Beaconite and one of the founders of Beacon’s Second Saturdays. Margery Groten is the Long Dock project director for Scenic Hudson and was instrumental in bringing Long Dock Park and the River Center for Beacon. Susan Sayre Batton, Dia:Beacon’s managing director, has striven to form a mutually beneficial relationship between Dia, Main Street, and the Beacon arts community.
BeaconArts is a nonprofit organization with the mission to support art events, encourage a thriving arts community, and to promote Beacon as an arts destination.
Proceeds from the event will benefit the BeaconArts’ general fund with a portion going to the Clara Lou Gould Fund for the Arts, which endeavors to fund art projects by local artists that benefit the Beacon community. This annual event is BeaconArts’ sole fundraiser.
Reservations are requested by Oct. 16. For more information on how to purchase tickets or to become a sponsor by paying online, visit beaconarts.org.
