Up Close and The World's Smallest Museum of Controversial Art at BAU 

Beacon Artist Union (BAU) hosts two art exhibitions from August 8 to September 8, "Up Close" and "The World's Smallest Museum of Controversial Art."

"Up Close" is a group show with Faith Adams, Erica Leigh Caginalp, Ivan Sanford, and Naomi Teppich. Faith Adams is a local ceramics artist whose work features opposing or interdependent forces like organic and inorganic, nature versus man, and feminine and masculine. Erica Leigh Caginalip is a professional artist who makes functional bowls and pottery using different ceramic techniques. Ivan Stanford currently employs the grid pattern in his heavily worked surfaces of oil pigment sticks on panel. Naomi Teppich creates carved ceramic wall sculptures and three-dimensional pieces that are inspired by primordial sea creatures and their fossilized forms and textures.

Local mutlimedia artists Molly Rausch, Norm Magnusson, and David Goldin transform the Beacon Room into "The Worlds Smallest Museum of Controversial Art"—a traveling exhibition from KMOCA in Kingston. The Beacon Room is a 10' x 10’ project space in BAU Gallery that exists to strengthen the link between visual artists in the Hudson Valley and the community of Beacon.
