This week is an exciting mix of art talk derived from an event at the Beacon Art Salon that took place earlier in the summer of 2011.

Organized by Stacy Ward Kelly, the Beacon Art Salon was an ongoing series of conversation between artists in the Hudson Valley about their work. The word "was" is important here as the salon is now fading into the ether of history as Stacy has sadly left us for far off places. We wish her good luck.

In what was the last session, Simon Draper and Elia Gurna both talk about their artistic practice. Both are engage in a more direct, participatory way of working that includes the community in the production of their art. Throughout their talk they dig deeply into what it takes to develop such a practice and how they've come to realize the importance of working in these ways.
