An artist-run rental gallery space at 137 Main St in Beacon, NY.
A catalyst is..
Something that accelerates a reaction and causes activity between two or more persons or forces, without itself being affected. The space will be continually used and transformed to fulfill various needs, and by doing so will create new opportunities for communication and creativity. Essentially unchanged, yet always different.
A person or thing that precipitates an event or change; a person whose talk, enthusiasm, or energy inspires and motivates others.
In this spirit, we prepared the space and developed ideas of how it could be used, and who might be interested in making something happen here: for their own work, for the community, for experience, for fun, for a living, for art. For our part, we plan to do the same.
This well-located storefront is ideal for art exhibitions, installations, curated projects, creating a short-term showroom for craft or design, or similar uses.
It is designed to create an opportunity for individual artists or groups to show and sell work in a vibrant community that supports the arts.
We can also provide a venue to galleries and curators seeking additional or alternative exhibition space.
Rental is generally on a monthly basis with longer or shorter terms considered.
The telephone booth will often be on view and will feature changing art installations.
