CALL FOR ARTISTS

9th Annual West Chelsea Artists Open Studios 2022
Friday, May 20th, Saturday, May 21st, and Sunday, May 22nd
May 20-22, 2022, 12-6 p.m.

(New York NY) April 14, 2022, On May 20th, 21st, and 22nd from 12:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. Help celebrate the 2022 reopening of our Chelsea artist’s community by opening your studio to the public. During the week of May 18th through the May 22nd, collectors, curators, dealers, and art enthusiasts —from around the globe —will all descend upon our neighborhood for the highly anticipated 2022 Frieze Art fair held at the Shed in Hudson Yards, just blocks from the West Chelsea artists gallery district.

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 or works spaces 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.  
The 2022 spring art season is upon us, and we look forward to your participation to open your studio or workspace to show and sell your artworks to the visiting public. 

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, Monday, May 9th, 2022. 
** Download the Artists’ Application PDF at www.westchelseaartists.com.
There is a $50 Artist fee; this fee helps to cover the costs for printing and marketing.

About
The West Chelsea Artists 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 sixty 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. Self-Guided Tour Maps will be available to pick-up in the lobby of 526 West 26th Street or download from our website.

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

This Spring add some art & cultural to your entertainment calendar and get exclusive access to private West Chelsea Artists’ studios during the WEST CHELSEA ARTISTS OPEN STUDIOS EVENT on May 20-22, 2022.

The self-guided artists open studios tour is presented in conjunction with the Frieze, New York 2022 art fair, May 18-22, 2022 at the Shed in Hudson Yards.

April 14, 2022, New York, NY, The West Chelsea Artists Open Studios presents its 9th Annual Artists’ Open Studios to kick-off the spring New York art season just a few blocks from the Frieze New York 2022 at the Shed. On Friday, May 20th, Saturday, May 21st, and Sunday, May 22nd, the 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 two years for all artists during the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, the West Chelsea Artists 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 art world — the artist. As an artist organized event, we wanted to share a joint statement from our participants:

"Like many artists in this city, we adjusted and adapted to the state of the pandemic with resilience. 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."

We invite the public, to experience the artworks and studio spaces that helped us persevere, and provided direction in moments of uncertainty. We welcome the community of New York City, and travelers from beyond as our critical support structure to visit our historic neighborhood during this unprecedented moment in time.
