Until recently, Justin was a resident in the Alliance’s Atelier, our very first artists-in-residency program supported by the Esther B. Kahn Foundation. The program, which ran for three months, provided five up-and-coming artists (all past Scholastic Awards winners) with a storefront studio space donated by arts>Brookfield, along with a monthly stipend and general supplies, to create new works of art. You can learn more about Justin’s experience in the Atelier here: From the Atelier: Creating Art in a Public Space.
Saints and Sinners will feature 21 of Justin’s newest paintings, including pieces he created during his time in the Atelier, as well as some recently completed works that have never been shown before. We would be delighted if you will join us for the opening on May 3 from 7 – 8:30pm to celebrate this milestone in Justin’s career! The show will be up for a month, so be sure to check it out at some point if you can’t make it to the opening.
Splashlight Studio is located at One Hudson Square, 75 Varick Street, 3rd Floor, New York, NY 10013. We look forward to seeing you there!
