“Sunset on Bannerman’s Island” Fine Art Exhibition

A Fine Art Exhibition Featuring Paintings,Watercolors and Pastels of Bannerman’s Island

Will open at Bannerman Island Gallery in Beacon, NY – on Saturday, June 11th, 2022
The Bannerman Castle Trust, Inc. (BCT) with their gallery located at 150 Main Street in Beacon, NY, will  present a special exhibition featuring art that was created on Bannerman’s Island on the Hudson River. The exhibition will open to the public on Saturday, June 11th, with an opening reception from 4:00-6:00pm.  The exhibition will remain on view through Sunday, August 7th.

On Saturday, June 4th, twenty-five professional artists painted historic Bannerman’s Island, the picturesque island, located just North of Cold Spring and South of Beacon in the Hudson River Highlands.   Bannerman Castle, its picturesque towers in the water, island gardens and the original Bannerman stone residence (a.k.a. the little castle) were all focal points for the artists – which included 28 of the Hudson Valley’s most popular Plein-Air (landscape) painters.

The art was taken back to the Bannerman Island Gallery for a special exhibition featuring Bannerman’s Island and the Hudson River.  The art-work features many different disciplines and styles from traditional to abstract.  Each original work is truly unique, and all works are for sale.  Proceeds from art sales will benefit further restoration projects on Bannerman’s Island!

The show will be on display for much of the Summer continuing through Sunday, August 7th.  Gallery hours are Saturdays and Sundays from 12:00 noon to 5:00pm and most weekday afternoons by chance or appointment, by calling 845-831-1001, or 845-416-8342.  The exhibition is FREE and open to the public and special group tours can be arranged!

Bannerman’s Island is accessible by the Estuary Steward Tour Boat, leaving the Beacon, NY Dock by reservation only.  If you are interested in taking a tour of the island or in attending one of the BCT’s fabulous island events including; theater productions, movie nights, culinary events and more, please visit www.bannermncastle.org  for information and tickets!   For more information on this event or on Bannerman’s Island, please call Exhibition Coordinator, Laurie Clark at 845-416-8342 or BCT Executive Director, Neil Caplan at 845-831-6346.  Thank you!
