Here’s how it works:
- Purchase a Trenton CSArt share by check, or by PayPal, which entitles you to one piece of original art produced by eight artists we’ve selected (eight works total). Only one share per person please.Pick up your eight original art works approximately 6-8 weeks later. The pickup is a mixer which enables you to meet and get to know your artists. An alternate pickup date will be scheduled for those who cannot attend the first pickup.
- Frame your art (some works may be ready to hang/place already, others may not) and display around your home. Repeat step 1 as needed.
- You may do a split share with a friend – but you have to hash out, who gets what.
For each CSA, SLOW ART will curate a diverse group of artists, mixing veterans with young turks, and soliciting work in all mediums.
SLOW ART selects a rich mix of artists to make art for Trenton CSArt, but gives these artists free reign to create work for our shareholders. As with CSA farm shares, you have no idea what you are going to be receiving until you pick it up. Some artists may create a single edition of work for shareholders, resulting in largely identical art for each shareholder. Others may make individual, unique pieces for every shareholder. Still others may choose the CSA to experiment stylistically, challenging themselves and giving you the first peek at their latest creative evolution.
We can’t guarantee you won’t get “too much kale” in your pick-up, but we can assure you that you will receive eight pieces of real art, industriously and lovingly made just for you, plus a rich experience, and the feeling of being a part of something bigger than any one of us.
