How our CSA (Community Supported Art) works:

Artspace is excited to introduce the Artspace CSA, a new way to buy local and support artists! Six Artspace member artists were selected to participate in our second annual CSA.  Each of the six artists received a stipend to produce a series of 40 works of art. The resulting 40 CSA collections contain one work of art from each artist; that’s 6 pieces of art in each collection!

Join the CSA by becoming a collector!

Collectors will purchase the 2017 CSA collection for $250 (Artspace member price) or $300 (non-member price) beginning December 18th. Collections will be available for pick up from the Artspace Gift Shop. Each share includes SIX unique works of art (one piece from each of our participating artists).

Works represent a range of subjects and mediums from fiber arts and abstract collage to sculpture and traditional oil painting. This is an amazing way to begin your art collection, add to an existing collection, or help someone else start their collection.  The Artspace CSA provides something for everyone!

The 2017 CSA collection will be available for pick-up now. There is a limited quantity of 40 and will be sold on a first come, first served basis. 

Benefits for CSA Collectors:

  • Receive multiple works from local emerging and mid-career artists
  • Develop relationships with the local artists and art community
  • Discover new artists and explore a variety of disciplines
  • Support local artist’s careers and a vibrant community while growing a collection of visual art

The Artspace CSA is modeled on Open Art Society’s 2014 art CSA, featuring work by Artspace members Warren Hicks and Heather Gordon as well as local artists, Tamara Galiano Bagnell, JR Butler, Kimberley Pierce Cartwright, Gracelee Lawrence and Matt Zigler.

Many other communities have engaged in programs similar to the Artspace CSA, but ours is the first of its kind in Raleigh.
