Beacon Arts Guild
You are invited!
Beacon Arts is putting together a guild, a directory of local artists, musicians and performers, that will be public on our website. We want our community to know who you are, what do you do and what kind of services you offer. The end goal is to raise awareness and help promote you in our community. Being listed in the directory is free, if you are interested in joining please fill out the online guild application part of the form, we will review your application and contact you before posting any information online. Joining the Guild is free but we ask that you commit to 12 hours of volunteering annually to support the Guild.
A panel of Beacon Arts volunteers will review your application on the following criteria:
Quality of services
The first half of the form is a survey is to guide Beacon Arts on what kind of services you need to grow and prosper, even if you are not interested in being listed on the website we would appreciate your feedback. With the current pandemic and economic crisis, knowing what you need is even more vital. Let us know so we can grow and expand with you.

I enjoy bright colors, altered forms, and spontaneity. Right now I am creating colorful, stylized landscape pieces using watercolors and ink. These pieces are technical and controlled but painting with water allows for a certain amount of chaos and I try to use that. I am currently making high-quality prints of my pieces for sale, and looking for inspiration, motivation, and collaboration in Beacon Hill.
I just sold my creations for the first time last Saturday at the Day Moon Press South End Public Market. Selling my art has been a dream I have had for a long time. This is just the begining of my journey and I'm excited to connect with the artist community on Beacon Hill. I try to communicate a bit of who I am in my projects, with a focus on bright colorful fabrics, joyful self-care, and my Chicanx heritage.
I am creative with a background in graphic design and video production. My passion for creative planning has lead me to a position where I manage advertising and branding projects from concept, production, to post-production. These projects include social media strategy for boosting online presence of artists in Seattle, logo and web design and art work and print designs for a variety of products.
My skills include creative planning, video production, art direction, graphic design and project management.
Tara Kraft loves paint. And ink. And rocks. She thinks of her works as geology in fast-forward, allowing the characteristics of a material to interact with her intentions in an ever-alluring play of forces. She enjoys allowing her materials to express their unique qualities and physics, creating unexpected and powerful moments.
