RiverWinds Gallery presents Robert Ferrucci: Contemporary American Folk Art, scenes of Hudson Valley farms and New England. His strong pallet of rich colors, bold shapes and forms has grown over the years, bringing a new series to delight the eye and heart. The show opens on Beacon Second Saturday Jan. 11, and runs through Feb. 2, 2014. The artist reception will be held from 5 to 8 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 11.

Ferrucci has a lifelong love of rural landscapes. His family’s country home, a red cottage surrounded by farms, gave him memories of farms, cows and black and white barns.

“I try to convey the serenity I feel by simplifying the images I see; strong landscapes, old homes, barns and faded images in the distance,” Ferrucci said. “I love combining soft quiet areas with a strong central image.”

RiverWinds Gallery is located at 172 Main St., Beacon. Call 845-838-2880, or visit Hours:  Wednesday – Monday, noon to 6 p.m. and Beacon Second Saturday, noon to 9 p.m.
