Beacon Institute is proud to welcome artist/biologist Brandon Ballengée to its gallery at 199 Main Street in Beacon for a new show that will be on display through March 8, 2015:

Ghosts of the Gulf  is an exhibit of strikingly vivid images of marine species collected in the Gulf of Mexico after the 2010 Deep Water Horizons (DWH) oil spill, the largest environmental disaster in the history of the United States.Through the colorful art and biology of Brandon Ballengée, these once-common species seem to rise as apparitions from the depths, haunted icons of contemporary environmental chaos.

Organized by Amy Lipton of ecoartspace. Courtesy of the artist and Ronald Feldman Fine Arts, New York, NY. Artist talk & reception:December 13, 2014.
