One Night Only:

NEW YORK: Harold Arts (Chicago) is pleased to announce their first trip to New York, in an effort to raise awareness and funds in support of the 2010 Artist-in-Residency program taking place this July and August. For one night only, Harold Arts presents works by former residents and colleagues in a silent auction, complimented by the sounds of Matt Bauderand Jeff Kimmel, for one night only at Chelsea's SALT gallery.

The Harold Arts Residency Program is a unique opportunity for emerging and mid-career artists and musicians to work alongside their contemporaries in a pastoral environment. Located on a tree farm in Chesterhill, Ohio, their fifth annual program offers self-directed residencies with a strong emphasis on collaboration across artistic disciplines. New to the 2010 program are two sessions led in partnership with DFLuxand threewalls, designed to for artists interested in grappling with questions of context, specifically on the tree farm and within the surrounding Appalachian community.

The Harold Arts Residency Program lays a foundation for projects to be deployed throughout the year. Upcoming curatorial projects include Chicago's NEXT art fair, Nathan Bakerand Irena Knezevic@ Heaven Gallery, and a few top secret initiatives brewing in Ohio. Our recording studio (constructed in a reclaimed indoor swimming pool) will host the projects of independent labels Captcha Records, Vosotros, and Sundmagi Records, while a resident recording engineer and producer aid the efforts of musicians. Each Fall, we celebrate the efforts of our evolving collective through the Harvest Festival, a multimedia arts festival held at a variety of venues around Chicago. As always, Harold Arts aims to foster exchange and dialogue amongst innovative artists in providing a platform for the production and dissemination of new works.

Join us, and help support a burgeoning community of innovative visual artists, musicians and cultural producers.
