Buy An Art Share!
My work on this project
is complete! All 50 paintings were completed, and in 2017 a new group of artists participated. If you're interested in purchasing a share, visit www.csartcambridge.com
In 2016 I received a grant from the Massachusetts Cultural Council to create a body of work for an Art Share project promoted by the Cambridge Arts Council. After many months of work, I produced, packaged and created marketing materials for 50 paintings for the share.
"Cambridge Arts Council presents Community Supported Art, an award-winning program that operates much like an agricultural CSA share – with a clever twist! Instead of enjoying a harvest share of farm vegetables, Community Supported Art provides an opportunity to directly support local artists by purchasing a share of original artwork made by a neighbor, friend and member of the Cambridge community. Participating artists are hard at work on an exciting new crop of artworks."
I was selected, along with eight other talented artists, to create art that you can purchase as part of a 'share' of art ready to display in your home. It's a great way to start an art collection and it makes a unique gift idea and each year the collection and artists involved expands. In 2017 an entirely new group of artists participated and the work was exceptional.
