Accepting submissions from January 23-February 20, 2015 Decisions sent out March 6, 2015 The New York Art Residency & Studios Foundation is delighted to announce Celestial Sunset, our 4th Annual Spring Benefit and Silent Auction. Join us on Wednesday, April 22nd for an evening orbiting the stars from our home in Sunset Park. Spring will be in bloom giving way to a time meant for dancing under the paper moons and reveling with friends old and new. The walls will be alive with art and the cocktails will be flowing. So tuck away your sweaters, put on your party outfit and dancing shoes, and come celebrate another year of successful programming with us!
As you may know, it is you, the artists that make our benefits truly successful. We are grateful to you for making our past Benefit the most popular yet. To shake things up, this year we’re doing things a little differently by holding an open call for donated art work.
Many of the donated works are now in new homes and collections. Our benefit is an excellent opportunity to expose your work to New York gallerists, collectors, and curators. All proceeds from auctioned artworks go directly towards supporting our diverse programming efforts. Your contribution is vital to helping us provide creative support for the community. All donating artists receive complementary admission to our benefit!
