I had the privilege to experience the opening of the FRIDMAN Gallery located on Main Street Beacon, May 1st, and we've been back several times to see this awesome inaugural exhibit. You should follow suit!
Founded in 2013, Fridman Gallery represents a roster of artists working across disciplines, from painting and sculpture to performance, video and sound art. The current show in Beacon features artists:
Nanette Carter, Athena LaTocha, Wura-Natasha Ogunji
May 1 – June 27, 2021
475 MAIN STREET, BEACON NY
My daughter Erin, and I got to meet and speak with Iliya Fridman, Founder & Karlyn Benson, Director (Beacon) and had a special treat to speak and ask questions and learn first hand, about her art; Artist "Wura-Natasha Ogunji": "My drawings and stitchings on tracing paper, videos and public performances are deeply inspired by interactions that occur in the city of Lagos, Nigeria". "My performances explore the presence of women in public space, often at the intersection of labor, leisure, freedom and frivolity".
It was such a pleasure meeting the llIya Fridman, and the Artist "Wura-Natasha Ogunji":
come see this wonderful art!
On display till June 27th!
