Stonehenge NYC Announces One-Year Residency with Free Housing for Creatives in NYC - 'Still Standing'
NEW YORK, Oct. 22, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Stonehenge NYC, a leading real estate company in New York City, announces the official launch of Still Standing - a one-year residency with free housing for 20 artists and creatives in NYC, in exchange for regular commissions of their work.
Stonehenge NYC has recognized that, like many New Yorkers, artists have been hit particularly hard by the COVID-19 pandemic. It will actively support these essential members of our community by offering free apartments within its portfolio of luxury rental buildings across Manhattan and Long Island City. By supporting creatives across all mediums -- including (but not limited to) literature, performance, design, cinema, music, photography, and visual arts -- Stonehenge NYC hopes to give artists the time and space needed to create groundbreaking work that will lead the city into its next chapter, while supporting its ongoing campaign, "New York is Still Standing!"
The artists and creatives will be selected by a special committee via an application process, which will consist of two primary components -- the personal statement and the art submission, and will open on October 22nd and close at midnight on November 30, 2020. The residency will commence in March of 2021 and is open to any artist or creative who is eligible to live and work in New York City.
"The wellbeing of our community has been tested by a global pandemic," said Ofer Yardeni, chairman and CEO of Stonehenge NYC. "New Yorkers are no stranger to struggle, and we will show the world our strength and resilience. It is the people that make this city great, and we at Stonehenge NYC are dedicated to the task of bringing new life to the city. We are excited to use this partnership with New York's most creative minds to help support and promote our amazing city."
The Still Standing Application is officially live on the Stonehenge NYC website. All creative disciplines are welcome.

Hot on the heels of one of our most successful show, with an almost sold out exhibition, we are delighted to be presenting five new artworks by Emilie Arnoux. They will be on display at our gallery on Thursday, October 22nd from 6 to 8pm.

Please RSVP at email@example.com so we can plan accordingly.
Emilie Arnoux’s paintings are brilliantly paired with American photographer Lynn Savarese. Together the two artists' work comes to life in vivid juxtaposition; the gentle flow of water in motion with the play of sunlight on its surface offers up endless summer reveries all the more apropos with dog-days now sadly coming to an end. This exhibition seeks to satisfy our intense longing for one last tryst in the sun.
Arnoux hails from Normandy, France. From a young age, she became fascinated by the ocean and the laid back lifestyle surf-culture engenders. Her work captures the divine energy and the jubilation experienced when diving into cool water for relief from the hot-hot heat; tan bikini-clad bodies soaking up vitamin D by the pool while bobbing enticingly in bright-red inflatable rafts. Arnoux’s neo art-deco style is drenched in a certain Americana nostalgia, reminiscent of David Hockney and at times Toulouse-Lautrec. She reduces three-dimensional objects to flat geometric shapes that feel at once contemporary and modern, recalling beach-side postcards of the 1950s and 60s.
Savarese’s favorite subject, too, is water, in all of its manifestations from calm to turbulent; from gently lapping to crashing in frothy tumult. In her portrayals of water, she strives to evoke the ways in which this universal elixir uniquely soothes, excites, inspires, consoles, renews, delights, and awes. Savarese has traversed the globe to capture water’s beauty; from the Hamptons, the Adirondacks, and Martha's Vineyard, to Iceland, Australia, the Caribbean, Patagonia, Europe, and Japan. Her featured images focus on the mesmerizing ways in which water surfaces collaborate with intense summer light and serve as exquisite canvases for abstract artistic renderings. Savarese’s aquatic portraits offer a dynamic connection with Arnoux’s paintings of glimmering water, with each artist inviting or daring viewers to dive right in.
POOLSIDE resonates with a complex prism of sun-drenched hues; Savarese’s images are rich in cobalt blues, teals, and whites, while Arnoux’s vivid pastel color palette employs a range of saturated blues, greens, and oranges. The two artists’ intimate portrayals of water reflect a deep affinity, while retaining an inspired uniqueness. Together, the exquisite works illustrate in living color the exhilarating sensations of summertime. You can still feel the heat from the sun on your skin, the lovely relief from the weight of gravity that water provides, the subtle burn of chlorine from the pool, coconut flavors from thickly applied suntan lotion wafting on the balmy air, and the delicious taste of salt from the ocean on your chapped lips.
