Once a year artists of Beacon, New York open their art studios to the public. This free, citywide, weekend long event has become one of the largest of its kind in the Hudson Valley. This year marks the 10th Anniversary!
Robin Rice is a successful gallerist and photographer having spent the past 40 years living and working in New York City and Bridgehampton. While still the owner of the Robin Rice Gallery in New York City, where she continues to represent and nurture artists from around the world, she has taken the bold step of moving to the Lofts in Beacon, NY to focus on her own work as a fine art photographer.
Robin fell in love with the unique 12-acre property of a 19th century textile mill, just along the banks of the Fishkill Creek. The 20 foot ceiling, live/work Beacon Lofts, nestled in the Hudson Valley, are also home to a thriving modern day artist community.
With Beacon’s rapidly developing art scene and its close proximity to the Dia Beacon Art Foundation, Robin saw the opportunity for her own creation and growth. “It’s all the inspiration I needed to make the loft a space for my own work. It’s a dream come true”, she says.
Robin is carefully unearthing and curating her extensive personal collection dating back to when she was 16 years old. Her mission is simple: to document the world around her in a cinematic way. Whether capturing the grit of New York in its glory days of Studio 54 or the innate beauty of tucked-away South American landscapes or the reflective moments of unknowing subjects, her photographs are always authentic.
As a photographer, she has a dreamy and bohemian way of portraying people and situations that is reflective of the way she lives her life situations connecting to people through art, food, travel and dance. Her meticulous eye, attention to detail and innate instinct for visual excellence are only some of the traits that make Robin’s photography exceptional in every way.
