Art at Studio 55C

Now on view at Studio 55C:

“Movement, the Arts, and Well-being”

An art gallery exhibit featuring movement and dance from March 28th-May 19th, 2019 at Studio 55C. A variety of works will be on display, including dance rehearsal art by WPA Artist Agnes Mills portraying Paul Taylor, Alwin Nikolais, Murray Louis and others, Chinese line painting by Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen, founder of Body-Mind Centering, “Nature Being Art” photography by Jamie McHugh, a dancer and movement therapist, and ‘Vespers,’ watercolors with pen and ink by Chelsea Rushton, yoga teacher and artist. The exhibit is being hosted by Moving for Life, the non-profit dance organization in charge of Studio 55C. Each exhibitor has a relationship to Moving For Life and the field of “somatic movement” – the art of paying attention to your body’s sensation.

All donations to Moving For Life go towards funding Moving For Life’s free DanceExercise community classes and wellness lectures.

Established as a nonprofit 501(c) 3 organization in 2014, Moving For Life has been providing over 50 free classes a month to older adults and people of diverse ages dealing with cancer with little access to gym, classes or the guidance to exercise safely. Classes are in the Greater NYC and Upper Hudson Valley region as well as national and international. Moving For Life recently moved to 55 Ave C a wheelchair accessible storefront in NYC, and established Studio 55C, expanding its mission to include a forum for the visual as well as the performing arts focused on wellness and artistic expression. Moving For Life invites others to consider sharing their work at Studio 55C in it’s foyer and on the wide white walls of the 46 x 24’ dance studio.  Moving For Life is supported by grants from the Komen Greater NYC Foundation, NYS Department of Health, Partnership with Parks, and the generous donations of individuals and small corporations. We wish to extend our gratitude to the individual artists and the volunteers who help to make our Studio55C art shows possible.
