The Eau Claire Regional Arts Center has announced its 2015 Community Supported Art (CSA) program, an opportunity for buyers to experience local artwork in an easy and exciting way. Like Community Supported Agriculture, ECRAC wants its members to experience local artists and artwork first hand. Throughout the summer, anyone who buys a share will receive three “farm boxes” of locally produced artwork. Every share includes a piece of art from nine local artists, a “bumper crop” of additional artwork, tickets for two events, gift certificates, and more arts opportunities. Partcipating artists are Lorrinda Benvides, illustrator; Sandra Cress, illustrator; Jane Foos, fabric artist; Katie Bohn & Christina Doffing with original paintings; Dick Milheiser, potter; Jessica Mongeon, painter; Crysten Nesseth, sculptor; Jake Ring, photographer; and Aryn Widule, printmaker. Shares are $250 each and can be purchased by contacting ECRAC at (715) 832-2787. There are only 30 shares available, so call soon.
