Brianna Charter and Elizabeth Peralta grew up in Poughkeepsie, N.Y.
Since their meeting in 1996, they have been inseparable. Growing up as minorities in a time of local financial hardships, they realized fairly early that Poughkeepsie didn't necessarily have many outlets that residents can use to express their culturally rich aptitude. With Brianna's degree in art history and Elizabeth's prosperous tattoo studio, they have a fair understanding of the dire need for expression. Having found BE Events in hopes to give a platform to talented local artists, their sole purpose is to help the community express their multifaceted and talented artistic vision through representation and exhibiting local artists creations.
