Beacon Institute is proud to present the work of renowned artist Fredericka Foster in Water Way, a vibrant collection of oil paintings depicting waters from Norway to the industrial Hudson River. Foster's Water Way exhibit will open on Sat, 3/8, with a free public reception to welcome the artist beginning at 5 pm, at the gallery at 199 Main Street in Beacon.

 

Foster brings her continuing series to the Institute after having her fifth solo Water Way exhibition at the Fischbach Gallery in New York City in May 2013. 

 

In 2011, Foster guest-curated and exhibited her work in the Value of Water art exhibition at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine in New York City.
