Bay Street Landing Artists in Residence

Bay Street Landing Artists In Residence comprises an evolving group of painters, sculptors, photographers and others in less traditional media -- e.g., a "miniature" builder who uses real beetles in her dioramas -- ­ who live and create in their home studios, taking inspiration from the open, airy spaces, water views and great light abundant in this unique harbor-front complex. These are guided tours which begin at 30 Bay Street Landing (across from the Lyons Pools, Victory Blvd between the railroad tracks and New York Harbor).

This evening is also a Call for Artists and Curators who would like to show at the Center! What better way to pitch a show than with some jpgs and sweets?! 
We are truly your Community Center and have been showing artists on a monthly basis since 2011, we have also been a regular participant of the Second Saturday Staten Island Art Walk.
