BeaconArts' mission is to foster and encourage the advancement of the City of Beacon as a center for arts and culture. We work to enable resident artists of all disciplines to live and thrive in Beacon by widely promoting their projects and events, as well as to develop and facilitate inspiring, and inclusive, creative experiences and programs that promote a vibrant community and enrich the lives of our local citizens. 

BeaconArts works to promote the cultural vibrancy that has become our community's trademark. Founded in 2002, BeaconArts proudly promotes and nurtures the city’s multi-faceted arts community while actively engaging in the vibrancy of the greater Hudson Valley.

Thanks to the ongoing support we receive through membership, BeaconArts provides resources and support for artists throughout the community. Much like the art itself, these support systems derive from intimate relationships and look different for different projects. Some of the methods by which BeaconArts supports the artist community include: fiscal sponsorships, annual artist member shows, curation and management of art in public spaces, artist networking events, facilitated collaborations between artists and local businesses, and more. BeaconArts prides itself on being a resource for an arts-oriented community and aims to provide creative experience for makers, consumers, and businesses alike. We are all connected through the creative economy.

Ethan Cohen Gallery has represented both emerging and internationally renowned artists for over thirty years. Many of the emerging artists have now become household names. The gallery occupies a distinct place in contemporary art as a center of innovation across disciplines and countries. It serves artists and clientele through global art fairs, curatorial projects with top institutions, and as a center for seminal cultural events. Today Ethan Cohen Gallery has two gallery locations, one in Chelsea in the heart of New York City and the other in The Kube Art Center in Beacon, New York.


The Ethan Cohen gallery was first founded in 1987 as Art Waves/Ethan Cohen in SoHo, New York City. A groundbreaker in the field of contemporary Chinese art, Ethan Cohen was the first gallerist to present the Chinese Avant-Garde of the 1980s to the United States.


Ethan Cohen Gallery today represents a diverse global mix of contemporary and postwar contemporary art, with a continuing focus on emerging as well as established artists.


Ethan Cohen advises private, public, and corporate clients and is a certified appraiser with the Appraisers Association of America, specializing in contemporary Asian art and contemporary African art.
