Intimate East End Studio Tour and Luncheon
 To Benefit the New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA)

 

Long Island, NY - Marjorie Silverman, J. Whitney Stevens and Carol Ross will host an intimate tour of artist studios on Long Island’s East End to benefit the New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA) on Friday, August 5, 2016. Led by Christina Mossaides Strassfield, Museum Director/Chief Curator at Guild Hall, the group will visit the studios of artists Mary Ellen Bartley, Mia Fonssagrives-Solow, Toni Ross, and Claire Watson. The tour meets at 9:00 AM and will conclude with a seated lunch at 1:00 PM at a private residence in Bridgehampton catered by celebrity chef Gabe Kennedy.

 

Tickets start at $250 and ticket sales from the event will support NYFA’s programs for artists throughout Long Island and New York State, include Artists’ Fellowships grants, in-depth professional development boot camps, and online resources.

 

This is the fourth East End Studio Tour to benefit NYFA; previous tours have featured artists Alice Aycock, Sally Egbert, Audrey Flack, Connie Fox, Christopher French, Mary Heilmann, Bryan Hunt, Joel Perlman, Joan Semmel, Nina Yankowitz and Barry Holden, and Joe Zucker many of whom will be attending on August 5th.

 

Mary Ellen Bartley is an American artist known for her photographs that explore the tactile and formal qualities of the printed book and its potential for abstraction. Her work has been widely exhibited, including in solo shows at Yancey Richardson Gallery and The Drawing Room in New York and at Guild Hall in East Hampton, New York, among others. Exhibitions exploring themes of the book and objects caught in transition from the analog to the digital realm, such as Well Read: Visual Explorations of the Book at Photographic Center Northwest in Seattle and Out of Print at the Bakersfield Museum of Art in California, along with The Thing Itself at Yancey Richardson Gallery, have featured several of Bartley’s series.

 

Mia Fonssagrives-Solow is an internationally celebrated artist and designer. As the daughter of renowned photographer Fernand Fonssagrives and iconic super model Lisa Fonssagrives, as well as the step-daughter of fashion photographer Irving Penn, Fonssagrives-Solow was born into and molded by a world of art and design. She continues to build upon this legacy as a renowned sculptor, painter and designer of fine jewelry. Fonssagrives-Solow has exhibited work throughout the U.S. and Paris and has graced the pages of many lauded publications, such as W, Elle, InStyle, Harper's Bazaar and Artnet. Her sculpture and jewelry can currently be found in locations around the world, including Louisa Guinness Gallery, London; Gagosian Gallery, NYC; Steven Kasher, NYC; Eric Firestone, East Hampton and The Maeght Gallery, Paris.

 

Born and raised in New York City, Toni Ross attended Wesleyan University where she studied ceramics and the arts, graduating with a BA in Film Studies. Her lifetime interest in the visual arts took her to Italy where she absorbed the great traditions of the Renaissance and the Middle Ages while painting and sketching in museums, piazzas and the countryside. Since then, her practice has evolved to include works in sculpture, drawing and painting; her focus on stoneware dates to 1997. She has had solo exhibitions in The Drawing Room, Celadon Gallery, Galerie Dutko, and Ricco Maresca Gallery among others.

 

Claire Watson received a BFA from the University of Texas at Austin, and an MFA from Tyler School of Art at Temple University in Rome and Philadelphia. Her work has been shown in New York at Islip Art Museum; the Anthony Giordano Gallery at Dowling College, Oakdale; Art in General, NYC; and the Lehman College Art Gallery in the Bronx. It has also been exhibited at Baxter Gallery, Maine College of Art in Portland; the Steven Wirtz Gallery in San Francisco; and at Johnson Gallery, Middlebury College, Vermont. She received a Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant in 1990-1991, and is a 2007 Fellow in Sculpture from the New York Foundation for the Arts.

 

Chef Gabe Kennedy is the winner of ABC’s primetime show The Taste where he was deemed America’s best undiscovered cook by Anthony Bourdain, Nigella Lawson, Marcus Samuelsson and Ludo Lefebvre. He is a graduate of Cornell University’s School of Hotel Administration and The Culinary Institute of America where he finished first in his class. He has worked at Bouley, Eleven Madison Park, Cru, and Blue Hill at Stone Barnes. He currently works as a private chef and runs a catering and events company.

 

The New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA) was founded in 1971 to empower artists at critical stages in their creative lives. Each year NYFA awards $650,000 in cash grants to individual artists in all artistic disciplines. NYFA’s fiscal sponsorship program is one of the oldest and most reputable in the country and helps artists and organizations raise and manage an average of $4 million annually. NYFA’s Learning programs provide thousands of artists with professional development training and support, and NYFA’s website, NYFA.org, received over 1.2 million visitors last year and has information about more than 12,000 opportunities and resources available to artists in all disciplines.
