The New York Art Residency & Studios Foundation is delighted to announce Late Autumn Fling, our Second Annual Benefit and Silent Auction. The cold of winter may swiftly be settling in, but we’ve got the goods to warm you up. Join us on Saturday, November 10 for a celebratory evening down in Sunset Park. We’re setting the mood and revamping the space in spicy and unprecedented ways. We guarantee it will be the hottest spot you’ll hit up that night. All ticket and artwork sales go directly towards artist fellowships and our educational outreach initiatives.

Since our founding in 2006 and the launching of our programs in 2011, we’ve had quite a growth spurt. We continue to provide professional development opportunities through our affordable long-term studio spaces, progressive exhibition programs and short-term integrated international residency programs. Our new partnerships with MoCADA, Residency Unlimited and Abrons Arts Center have us pooling our resources to support each other’s programming efforts and enriching the experience of our artist communities. Additionally, we’re delighted to have recently joined hands with two Brooklyn middle schools as part of our effort to launch our Education and Community Outreach Programs. We will be implementing afterschool and mentorship programs and opening up our space to the community for exhibition tours, and children’s workshops. Your contribution will propel our vision and reflect in our ongoing effort to provide successful and enriching programs.

Our annual benefit is an affirmation of our steadfast commitment to emerging and underrepresented artists and curators as we carry on our mission to provide them with opportunities to discover just how far their creative processes can reach. It is also a step towards strengthening our ties with the local community and creating greater accessibility to the fine arts. NARS is a destination, a Sunset Park nexus which aims to generate inspiration and dialogue from as far away as Australia and Kenya and as close as from down the block. Tell your friends, your family, your lover: your attendance at our Benefit will make a big difference. We look forward to welcoming everyone on November 10.
