Meanwhile, Portland Open Studios’ third annual PDX-CSA is off and running. Based on the concept of agricultural CSAs, or Community Supported Agriculture plans, in which you pay for your veggies at the beginning of the season and get them delivered as they ripen, the art version gives you a chance, on a low-cost basis, to act like an old-fashioned patron of the arts – a Peter the Great or Henry the Eighth or Louis Quatorze.
Here’s the deal: You choose an artist (or two), commission a work of art (or two), then wait for the artist to deliver the goods. The artist, prepaid by you, then gets to work knowing what she creates will have a home. It’s open until April 16, and artworks will be delivered in late June. Most works will sell for about 150 bucks. The artist gets some work, and you get the excitement (and surprise) of commissioning something from an artist whose work you like. Ten artists have been chosen, working in teams, and if you like you can commission work by both members of a team. Go get ’em, aspiring lords of the realm. The art’s in your court now.
