New York Art Residency & Studios (NARS) Foundation


The NARS Foundation invites you down to Sunset Park to experience artists in their natural habitat: the studio. The NARS Open Studios offer a platform to foster the invaluable exchange between artist and community. Artists open their doors to expose an otherwise private workspace, gaining feedback and broader exposure that might lead to other opportunities. Neighbors and visitors, in turn, get access to the creative process happening right next door and a glimpse into spaces that they might not otherwise see.

Participating artists: Elodie Abergel, Jose Arenas, Niamul Bari, Ross Berry, Santiago Silva Daza, Ana Delgado, Tai Hwa Goh, Katya Grokhovsky, Ronald Hall, Noël St. John Harnden, Delphine Hennelly, Yi-Boe Huynh, Aleksandra Ioseliani, Tadasuke Jinno, Sophie Kahn, Jan Kaláb, Liliya Lifanova, Cristian I. Mejia, Tracy Miller, Kristine Moran, Ann Oren, Nicola Page, Min Ho Shin, Mark John Smith, Carly Snoswell, Brian Stinemetz, Kate Stone, Masaki Takizawa, Austin Evans Turner and Matt Whitman.

Opening Reception: Friday, May 30th from 6-9pm
Open Studios continue to May 31st from 1-6pm
