RiverWinds Gallery at 172 Main St., Beacon, marks its 11th anniversary with a group show, Celebrating Summer, highlighting photography by 13 Hudson Valley artists. The show opens on Beacon Second Saturday Aug. 9, 2014, with an artists’ reception from 5 to 8 p.m., and runs through Sept. 7, 2014.
These Hudson Valley photographers have captured moments of summer from the excitement of a bicycle race, to the beauty of a flower, to the serenity of a summer sunset. Everyone today views themselves as photographers – it is just a click of your phone. But composition, lighting and subject matter takes time, talent and passion as demonstrated by these photographers.
RiverWinds Gallery will also have a sound installation by Beth Haber and Stephen Lewis. Here; Hear is multiple sensors in the window that allow people to activate a musical note from a a set of possible notes. Multiple players can hold place at different sensors – working out how they might play together.
The participating photoraphers are: Lori Adams, Mary Ann Glass, Phil Haber, Linda T. Hubbard, Christine Jacques, Karl LaLonde, Arnold Most, Rafael Quirindongo, Claudia Schellenberg, Richard Spisto, Rebecca Tocci, Brandon VanVlack, and John Verner.
Gallery hours are Wednesday through Monday, 12-6 p.m.; Second Saturday until 9 p.m.
