There's a bit of what's planned for this coming Second Saturday, Sept 13, 2008.
First, there's the Beacon Film Flam, as I have mentioned in the previous post.

400 Square - starting at 5pm. This is the inaugural opening of this photography gallery that will be located at 149 Main St. Photographer Rob Penner is opening the gallery, and the first exhibit will be comprised of his own work. Not knowing of the history of the name, Penner was planning on naming the gallery The Beacon Project space. When he learned that the name had already been used, he chose another name. (The Beacon Project Space was the exhibition space of the Beacon Cultural Foundation and was also the location of the foundation' offices from 2002-2004, until the organization moved to the old Beacon High School at 240 Main St, and the Project Space atrophied.)
