Beacon Institute Presents Hudson River Photo Exhibit Starting Oct. 12

A Closer Look: The Hudson River

Celebrate with the Beacon Institute for Rivers and Estuaries Saturday, Oct. 12, a Beacon Second Saturday. An opening reception will be held from 5 – 7 p.m. to welcome iconic Hudson River photographer Joseph Squillante to Beacon Institute’s gallery at 199 Main St., Beacon. Squillante first exhibited his work at the premiere of the gallery in 2004 and returns in 2013 with A Closer Look: The Hudson River.

Squillante, a resident of Peekskill, is known throughout the region as a long-time visual chronicler and passionate advocate of the Hudson River through his photography, which many consider reminiscent of the Hudson River School of landscape painters. In A Closer Look his new images, placed alongside his classic landscapes, imply a gentle bending from the traditional toward the abstract. Visit bire.org.
