So far, the Station North CSA is doing remarkably well. All the art shares sold out quickly and the participants involved seem pleased. On Wednesday, May 7, four CSA Artists gave short presentations on their work to help CSA investors choose the right work for them. After a presentation from Full Circle, a Station-North based archival framing shop, artists Mary Anne Arntzen, Christine Buckton Tillman, Felipe Goncalves, and Adam Estes all introduced the audience to their work which ranged from abstract paintings, to narrative mixed media pieces, to a lenticular high five limited edition print. There was a range of styles, sizes, and enough variety and quality that everyone in the packed audience could choose something that appealed to them. This was the second round of presentations and CSA investors got to pick up their first round of art, which made them very happy.
The next event will occur in June 25, when the last four of twelve CSA Artists will present their work and and pick-up two will occur. After each session (3 in all), CSA investors choose their top choices from that grouping, to ensure that everyone gets at least one or two of their top choices.
For those who are sad they missed a chance to buy four great works of art for three hundred bucks, Station North is planning a second round of the CSA soon.
