About the CSArt Program: With support from the Massachusetts Cultural Council, Creative Marketplace began in May 2016, following the selection by professional jury of nine local artists to participate as the inaugural class of CSArt. Much like an agricultural share, Community Supported Art provides a “harvest” of work from local artists to share purchasers. The CSArt model encourages the artists to learn as a cohort and to translate their studio practice into a series of fifty, reproducible and highly marketable small works. As part of their engagement, artists’ receive an honorarium along with a variety of opportunities to participate in a professional development and exhibition opportunities. All proceeds from the sales of CSArt shares directly benefit the artists and will support the continuation of the program in 2017/2018.
