AS|ARTISTS STUDIOS is a filtered, online database of non-represented artists who live in New York City and Paris, France. Founded in September 2011 by Jill Conner and Megan M. Garwood, AS|Artists Studios currently features works by more than 100 artists. The AS|Archive provides visitors with information about each artist, updated images of artwork in the studio, and the ability to contact the artist directly. In-person studio visits are encouraged.
During the first year of the operation of AS Studios, the AS artists participated in 29 solo shows and 55 group shows that received ample coverage in The New York Times, ARTFORUM, The New Criterion, and other publications.
In June 2012, one of the artists featured on AS|Artists Studios Vicki DaSilva won the “Art Takes Times Square” competition and had her work displayed on digital billboards in Times Square through the month of July.
AS|Artist Mark Sengbusch’s work is currently included in “Intersections” at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.
To be considered for inclusion in the Artists Studio database, you must have a body of completed work, live in New York City or the greater metropolitan region, and not be represented by any New York City gallery or currently enrolled in an academic program. Artists in residency programs are welcome to apply, and formal training or art education isn’t required.
Applicants should submit a brief bio, an artist statement, resume or curriculum vitae, a maximum of ten images of artwork, and a link to a website (if applicable). Full details on the Submission Guidelines can be found on the Artists Studios website.
