CSA Jackson Hole August Pick-Up Party


CSA Jackson Hole August Pick-Up Party, August 20th!

Artists: Meleta Buckstaff, Hole Dance Films, Aaron Wallis

 

 

(Jackson, WY) As we enter August and the end of CSA Jackson Hole’s first season, we reflect on how thankful we are to everyone who has made this new project possible and so vibrant. The last Pick-up Party for shareholders and the general public is on Wednesday, August 20 from 4pm to dusk at the JH People’s Market at the Snow King Ballfield. This event will be held as part of the local’s favorite market, offering up local artwork and the chance to meet the month’s featured artists. A premiere of Hole Dance Film’s newest film will happen before the Bike- in movie, so please stay around until the sun goes down! Open and free to all!

The featured artists for August are: Meleta Buckstaff with mixed media collages, Hole Dance Films with a film premiere and DVD, and Aaron Wallis with a new print from his Street Bible series.  Again this month, the artists have put such creative thought, passion and consideration into their CSA work. All three will be present at the party, selling and showcasing additional artwork. Bring your checkbook!

How does CSA Jackson Hole work? Each of the nine local artists received a commission to create 40 “shares” for the program. Interested collectors have purchased shares and in return will receive locally produced artwork at the three Pick-Up Parties during the summer of 2014. Featured works will include items such as: a run of screen-prints, a series of small ceramic cups, a series of photographs, a dance performance, and small original paintings. Each shareholder will receive one piece from each of the nine CSA artists over the course of the summer.

Over the last 20 years, Community Supported Agriculture has become a popular way for consumers to buy seasonal food directly from local farms. With the same buy-local spirit, Community Supported Art programs are a similar endeavor to support local art and artists. These programs are gaining popularity all over the country with the number of CSA’s increasing every year.

There are two shares for the 2014 season still available. Contact Alissa Davies at 307.690.4757 or [email protected] or go online at www.csajacksonhole.com for more information.
