Spring 2015 shares delivered April 23

April has been branded “Eat Local Month” in the Lowcountry and Charleston Supported Art, LLC, is offering up a visual feast for “localvores” consisting of curated collections of artwork by artists living and creating in our community. The debut pick-up event of the year, dedicated to the spring season, takes place on Thursday, April 23, at Faculty Lounge (391 Huger Street, downtown Charleston). Shares may be purchased online or at the event.

The twelve artists participating in the second year of Charleston Supported Art (CSA) were announced in February and the public was invited to get to know them and their work at a Meet and Greet event at Redux Contemporary Art Center shortly after. The gathering provided potential shareholders a glimpse of the quality and variety in styles and media of the works offered in each of CSA’s 2015 seasons.

CSA’s spring season features works by Chambers Austelle, Elizabeth Calcote, Chris Nickels, and Karin Olah. The four artists will be present at the April 23 pick-up event to mingle with patrons and speak about the 32 pieces of original artwork they each created specifically for and exclusive to Charleston Supported Art at 6:30pm. The pick-up event, open to current and prospective shareholders, will be the first time these works will be revealed. The pieces, which include paintings, block printed textiles, digital illustrations, and mixed media works, will not be available for purchase anywhere else.

Spring shares may be purchased and carried home on the night of the pick-up event. Summer and fall shares may also be reserved, with pick-up events scheduled for August 6 and November 5 respectively.
