FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Visit THE RESILIENT Artists’ studios to see pandemic-made artworks during THE HIGH LINE OPEN STUDIOS OPEN STUDIOS EVENT on September 11-12, 2021 during Armory Week.


September 5, 2021

(New York, NY) The High Line Open Studios presents its 11th Annual Artists’ Open Studios to kick-off the fall New York art season just a few blocks from the Armory Show at the Javits Center. On Saturday, September 11th and Sunday, September 12th, the RESILIENT artists of West Chelsea will re-open their studios to the public for a free, self-guided art tour from 12 to 6 p.m. each day.

After an especially difficult year for all artists during the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, the High Line Open Studios seeks to remind the public that our West Chelsea-based artists are: Still here. Still creating. As visitors walk from artist studio to studio, they will witness a changed neighborhood of numerous gallery (and studio) closures or relocations due to the financial hardships many have experienced during this global pandemic. Although we typically do not rally behind an event theme, this year we felt compelled to focus on the tenacity and resilience of the foundation of the artworld — the artist. As an artist organized event, we wanted to share a joint statement from our participants:

Like many artists in this city, we felt Resilient was an apt description of our current state. We’ve done our best to keep pushing forward and continued to do the only thing that was within our control — we kept creating. For us, it was the act of art-making that helped us cope during these chaotic times.

Many of the works that will be on view in our studios were made during the pandemic. All represent the breadth of art that perhaps commented on, were inspired by, reacted against, or, were created in spite of these unprecedented times. We invite you, the public, to experience each piece that helped us persevere, and provided direction in moments of uncertainty. We welcome the community of New York City as both our audience and as our critical support structure to visit our historic neighborhood during this historic moment.

The High Line Open Studios provides a rare opportunity for the community and tourists to meet our local contemporary artists who keep this historic art neighborhood vibrant. Over seventy artists will be on-hand to show their most recent artworks and discuss their artistic practice. Artworks will be available in a wide range of media including — but not limited to— painting, sculpture, photography, mixed-media, textiles, prints, collage, street art, and much more! While typically only accessible by appointment, visitors will be granted access “behind the scenes” to explore each artist’s creative space. The intimate setting gives collectors the rare opportunity to purchase artworks directly from the artists’ inventory without the gallery markup. It’s also a fantastic way to discover new emerging talent while their work is still affordable.

The two-day event attracts art enthusiasts, collectors, curators, artists, and tourists to the neighborhood making it a community-wide celebration. This year we’ve expanded to thirteen locations near the High Line Park and West Chelsea gallery district. Self-Guided Tour Maps will be available to pick-up in the lobby of 526 West 26th Street or downloadable from our website. And now with the Armory Show at the Javits Center — just a few short blocks away — we anticipate a fantastic turnout for our highly anticipated, art-filled weekend event!

The High Line Open Studios provides participating artists with an opportunity to open their studios, re-engage with the public, and — together—showcase our art community’s collective resilience through even the worst of times.

About:
Spearheaded by a handful of artists working in West Chelsea, The High Line Open Studios evolved out of an annual grassroots movement in the early 2000s. By 2007, a group of four artists formalized the event under its current name, the High Line Open Studio. The collective’s objective is to support the careers of West Chelsea artists by organizing open studio events that are free to the public, and that draw visibility to their historic art neighborhood.

The High Line Open Studios is organized and presented by West Chelsea artist, Scotto Mycklebust, artist/executive producer and the Public Art Squad Project.

CALL FOR ARTISTS

11th Annual High Line Open Studios 2021


(New York NY) August 30, 2021, On September 11th and 12th 12:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. Help celebrate the 2021 reopening of our Chelsea artist’s community by opening your studio to the public. On the week of September 6th, collectors, curators, dealers, and art enthusiasts —from around the globe —will all descend upon our neighborhood for the highly anticipated 2021 Armory Show.

This will be a prime opportunity for artists, like yourself, to capitalize on the foot traffic, discuss your works in-person, and importantly, sell your art. In past years, artists have reported on the many different types of positive exposure they’ve received. This has included: numerous sales of their work, large commissioned projects, their first exhibitions, critical essays written about their work, and excellent networking opportunities with art collectors — to highlight a few.

This event is open to all West Chelsea artists with studio space in West Chelsea accessible to the public. This will be as far North as Hudson Yards, as far South as the Whitney Museum of Art and Westbeth Artists Housing, as far East as 6th Avenue, and as far West to the Westside Highway and 11th Avenue.
We are looking to connect the High Line neighborhood with the Armory Fair, which will be held at the Javits Center this year during the High Line Open Studios tour.

We are also hopeful to invite confirmed artists to participate in a curated Preview Exhibition, pending the confirmation of an exhibition space. The title would be, Made During the Pandemic, which would have an opening night reception during Armory Week.

Made During the Pandemic would exhibit works created from the first whispers of Covid-19 in early January 2020, through to our present day hybrid-Covid/Post-Covid existence.

We are interested in presenting the breadth of artworks made during this chaotic period that may have commented on, been inspired by or reacted to: the Covid-19 death toll; a state of depression or languishing; the unprecedented economic fallout; the civil rights movement; the 2020 vote; existing in quarantine; the insurrection on the US Capital; the catastrophic climate events; the rise of zoom communication; our pandemic pods; the vaccination/anti-vaccination campaigns; to highlight a few topics.

Perhaps the subject matter of your work changed, or you created more work than usual, or you even switched to a different medium while unable to use your studio during lockdown — we would be interested in seeing all forms of your resilience and dedication to your artistic practice. The objective would be to place your work in a larger cultural dialogue about this unparalleled chapter in our history.

The 2021 fall art season is upon us, and we look forward to your participation and support!
Eligible Participants: Open to all artists in the West Chelsea area who can open their commercial studios, rented spaces, accessible apartments or pop-up spaces to the public.

Application DEADLINE: Thursday, August 26th.

** Download the Artists’ Application PDF at www.highlineopenstudios.org. There 
is a $50 Artist fee, this fee helps to cover the costs for printing and marketing.
