Available 2019 dates to book shows/events at Catalyst!

Interested in installing a show or event at Catalyst Gallery in Beacon, NY? We offer 450+ sq ft storefront space on Main St for short term pop-up events, such as exhibitions, book releases, pop-ups, open studios, sales, performances, benefits and workshops.
These may run from 1-2 days to 2-3 weeks to 4 weeks and the fee ranges from $200-$1400. We take no commission on sold work; the artist receives keys and handles all aspects of their show, and the fee helps us maintain the gallery.

All proposals will be reviewed by Catalyst Gallery. We are open to many ideas. We suggest you visit the gallery or request a floor plan to see if it’s the right fit for your project. For pricing and more information please email Erica at info@catalystgallery.com and include a description of you (or the person you are representing) and your proposal, any questions you may have, and a website link or images of your work. Or call us at 845-204-3844.

We are actively booking for 2019, which will be our 7th year! Visit our blog archive of over 80 exhibitions and events since opening in Feb 2013. We are proud of being known as one of the most interesting, diverse, and consistently satisfying venues for art in Beacon.

Salon Series continues with 2 events Sat Aug 25

Authors Kat Savino & Sarah-Jane deBrito Martin will read new works at Catalyst this Saturday evening Aug 25 at 7:30pm.

Sarah-Jane deBrito Martin will also be holding an interactive storytelling event at Catalyst earlier on Saturday afternoon at 3pm, see below for details. All are welcome! These events are part of the summer salon series that Carin White is hosting at the gallery during her exhibition of paintings, which is up through Sept 3.

Paintings by Carin Jean White

Spontaneity, physicality, and expressive force are prioritized in Carin Jean White’s artwork. Her oil paintings are in the vein of gestural abstraction as she finds the composition through the process of creating the work. Often playful, often reminiscent of natural landscapes, White’s paintings are a joy to experience.

On view now through September 2.

All Is Fair: Stamper Dear, Cory Spraker, Amanda Henneberry July 3-16

All Is Fair with works by Stampie Dear, Cory Spraker and Amanda Henneberry opens July 3 with an artist reception Sat July 7, 6-9pm. Closing reception Sat July 14, 6-9pm.

Stamper

Stamper will be showcasing her “Scar Series,” a collection of poems that flirt with the idea of hurt and healing, as well as her “She(Her)” photography works – an ethereal and overtly feminine self portrait series, exploring the dreamy and pastoral backdrops of yesteryear and today

Cory Spraker

Cory will be displaying works that explore the softness of the human body. The use of ballpoint pen juxtaposed with delicate plant pressings allow him to explore a quiet intimacy with nature.

Amanda Henneberry

Amanda’s work will bring together several of her large points of focus in art: abstract thought, abstract photo, politics and contemporary activism, writing, painting, nature and color theory – all organized by color, in tribute to the way she organizes her personal book collection at the home she shares with Stamper and Cory. Special printed copies of her art/poetry book, “Growth,” will be on display and available to purchase with hand-painted covers.

SK8 Art: sculptures by Coulter D. Young III, reception Sat Jun 9

I have a natural understanding of electro-mechanical devices and of how things work, enhanced through the formal study of electronics.
My fascination with form, shape, light, and composition took form in a lifetime of photography. My structural art started with looking at how things would fit in the space and form of a skate…
In my retirement, I now have the time to pull together all these disparate influences, as well as my love of collecting, into 3-D assemblages. I hope you enjoy them!
