I am pretty excited to be able to attend CSA's Art Party in Belltown this Sunday. Have you heard of CSA? Here is how it works. (taken from their website)
How CSA works:
Selected artists will create 10-50 “Art Shares” for the program. A typical share consists of art/object of artistic production – multiples are encouraged, however creative ideas that translate your practice into this format or connect to themes like sustainability, farm, or food are also welcome. For example a limited edition of vinyl 7”, a run of screen-prints, series of small tea cups, run of photographs, tickets to an upcoming performance or event, letterpress editions of a poem or short story, or even 10-50 small original paintings. Collaborations between artists or work by collectives are also welcome.
Interested consumers/collectors will purchase a share (aka a “membership” or a “subscription”) and in return receive 3 “farm boxes” of locally produced artwork at intervals this season. The pick-up evenings will be at local art sites and will feature music, food and entertainment.

Pretty cool concept don't you think? At the art party they are holding a silent auction benefitting Young Empowered Women http://youngwomenempowered.org/. I have donated Peony 1 to the silent Auction.
