Ron English extravaganza in Beacon, NY


Update: Ron English just announced TWO MORE events of his opening this Saturday in Beacon, bringing the grand total up to four.

Ron English is taking over Main Street in Beacon, New York this week with two shows opening at 6pm on Saturday. Both shows offer insights into English’s artistic process, showing a bit of behind-the-scenes preparatory work. At X on Main, English’s Between The Scenes show is made up of his first new series of photographs in 25 years. The photographs will be the ones he uses as studies for his paintings, which are often based on extremely complex dioramas that he creates in his studio. Between The Scenes runs through July 26th. Just down the street at Clutter Gallery, Thought Factory will be a show of the sketches and drawings that serve as the basis for English’s toys (plus some custom toys and special releases).

Caroline and I will be there, and we’ll be coming up from Philadelphia, so surely some New Yorkers should be making the trip as well.
