7TH ANNUAL COMMUNITY SUPPORTED ART (CSA) BOX ON SALE JUNE 1

The 7th annual Community Supported Art (CSA) box is available for purchase on June 1. Artist reception and remarks are June 7th at 6pm at Bunnell Street Arts Center. CSA artist talks follow the First Friday opening and artist talks of Kathy Smith and Bonilyn Parker’s June exhibit.

This program, now in its seventh year, elevates the practice of collecting work by local artists to strengthen the economic fabric of Homer. This year’s CSA opened applications to Alaska artists alongside Homer ones. The unique collection of small works created especially for the 2024 CSA box features six Anchorage artists: Danielle Larsen, Kellie Kekich, Krista Etzwiler, Meriam Linder, Natasha Toyukak-Johnson and Sarahlily Stein. Join us for an artist talk and reception on June 7th, in conjunction with June’s First Friday exhibit opening.

The 2024 collection includes:

  • Danielle Larsen: Watercolor paintings in acrylic magnetic frames
  • Kellie Kekich: Alaskan wildlife playing cards
  • Krista Etzwiler: Ceramic pinch pots on wood
  • Meriam Linder: Handmade Book
  • Natasha Toyukak-Johnson: Fishskin with fur or bent wire fish earrings
  • Sarahlily Stein: Natural watercolor palette

“Making an edition of books for the CSA will be a graduation of sorts, my first commercial venture in bookbinding. It’s exciting to imagine these blank journals, with all their potential, going out in the world.” -Meriam Linder

“Participating in the CSA would be my first-time using art to support myself financially.” -Sarahlily Stein

What is a CSA? Over the last 20 years, Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) has become a popular way to buy seasonal food directly from local farms. With the same buy-local spirit in mind, Community Supported Arts is a similar endeavor to support local art, artists and collectors. It’s been replicated in over thirty cities in North America over the past five years. This is Bunnell’s 6th annual CSA and the first to partake in Alaska. Alaska’s first art CSA was begun in 2018 by Bunnell’s Board of Directors to connect emerging artists with a community of collectors.
