Residency Artist Talk

As the NARS Foundation prepares for its big summer move, please join us for our sixth annual and final Open Studios event in our Sunset Park location. The lease is up, so is the rent, and on Saturday, June 8th, don’t miss our swan song; this is a great chance to celebrate our home of nearly seven years, and the artists who help make Sunset Park the radiant creative resource that it is. The neighborhood is quickly evolving into a cultural hub; Open Studios offers an invaluable exchange that benefits artists and community members alike. 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, a glimpse into spaces that they might not otherwise see, and experience art right where it is created.

Artist Talk & Performance, 2pm
88 35th Street, 3rd FL / Parlor Room

Before Open Studios kicks off, join the artists of the 2013 Season II International Residency Program as they briefly introduce their diverse practices and mediums. Take in their insights, perspectives and sounds before checking out their group exhibition, currently on view, and exploring what’ve they working on in their studios during their recent residency terms.
