Heading into its third year, Community Supported Art Pittsburgh is poised to launch a season of shares showcasing several local artists and creatives.
For 2015, only 20 shares of editioned artwork will be available from artists including, Jeremy Boyle, Jakob Marsico, Joshua Reiman and Addy Smith-Reiman, Lizzee Solomon, Reiko Yamamoto. In addition to these pieces, Casey Droege and Corey Escoto of CSA PGH are bringing innovation to the original model with two new upgrades.
First, this season’s shares will include editioned collaborations between the CSA PGH team and literary artist Yona Harvey, actor and mime Mark Thompson, and fashion designer Tammy Jackson from Saani Mac. Editions, such as lamps, precious ceramic objects, puzzles and a mime kit will include eight artworks and are focused on “pseudo-functional” objects.
Then, a Pop-up Shop in Downtown Pittsburgh, called the Small Mall, will feature programming from this year’s artists during the month of June. The CSA PGH Small Mall, to be located at 820 Liberty Avenue, will be open 12 p.m. to 8 p.m. daily from June 5th thru the 14th during the Three Rivers Arts Festival.
Shares go on sale at 10 a.m. May 22 on the CSA PGH website.This content was provided by a local, independent contributor to Made in PGH, a lifestyle blog.
