CSA+D FALL/WINTER 2013 SHARES!
FULL SHARE - 6 PIECES - $500
HALF SHARE - 3 PIECES - $250
Hello, art and design lovers! Thanks for your interest in the Brooklyn CSA+D Fall/Winter 2013 inaugural season. Shares purchased now will be available for pick-up at the CSA+D Holiday Event on December 18th from 5:30-8:30pm at 440 Gallery (440 Sixth Avenue in Park Slope, Brooklyn).
About the Selection Process
In July of 2013, we received over 300 applications from artists and designers in Brooklyn and beyond who proposed paintings, drawings, books, photographs, prints, jewelry, ceramics, textiles, collage, sculptures, housewares, and so much more for this first season!
There were some incredibly innovative ideas, amazing art and fantastic design proposals with real potential to revolutionize how we enjoy and collect original works of art and design.
By signing up for a full share, you will receive six works of art and/or design from artists and designers selected by the jury to participate in this season. By signing up for a half share, you will receive three works. This takes place at a one-time pick-up event. Visit the Artists + Designers page to see the artists selected for the Fall/Winter season.
PURCHASE YOUR SHARE NOW:
Shares purchased now will be available at a holiday pick-up event this December. If you'd like to give a share as a gift, please let us know after your purchase and we'll send you a custom gift certificate.

ABOUT THE SHARES
What can we predict?
The works created for this season will fit within an 18” x 12” x 12” box that you can carry home, and each will be part of a set of 50. Sometimes, this will mean that some CSA+D members may receive the same work by an artist (a print, for instance), other times, this could mean each one of the 50 works from one artist might be unique (a variation on a common theme). We have to wait and see what surprises the selected artists and designers have in store!
What can't we predict?
Much like a CSA for food, the exact contents of each share will be a mystery until pick-up day. With a farm, you may have a good sense of what's in season and the type and quality of food the farm is known for, but each pick-up is a unique, fresh selection. Similarly, as the CSA+D selected artists and designers are announced publicly, you will be able to discover the kind of work that they are known for, but no one will know exactly what they are making until the pick-ups, nor will anyone know which artists' and designers' work will be in their specific share.
The Next Pick-Up
Shares are still on sale for the holiday pick-up on December 18th from 5:30-8:30pm at 440 Gallery, located at 440 Sixth Avenue in Park Slope, Brooklyn.

Previous Pick-Up Events
The first pick-up events of the season happened on September 21st at Recession Art, 47 Bergen St., Brooklyn, NY and October 19th at NYFA in Dumbo.
