A few months back I shared a few images from an outing to Red Goose Gardens outside Shelly, Minn., and talked about my vision for an upcoming call for entry. Well, I’m happy to share that my proposal was accepted and I will be one of five local artists and four groups participating in The Arts Partnership’s inaugural Community Supported Arts project. The concept mirrors that of food-based CSAs except those purchasing a share receive an assortment of original art.

For more information about the project and those involved, check out The Arts Partnership‘s website or read an article published in the local newspaper. Word on facebook is shares are selling fast. Last time I checked just 20 of the initial 50 shares remained available. At just $300 per share, it’s definitely a great deal for anyone who enjoys art and wants to support local artists.

In the meantime, I’ll leave you with a photograph from last week’s farm outing. I spent seven glorious hours exploring, photographing and considering. I’m headed back to the farm in a few short weeks and can’t wait to see the collection of photographs grow and evolve.

Thanks for looking. – Ann

    Awesome picure. Brings back memories of when I was a child growing up on the farm. My mother raised all sorts of chickens and roosters. I love the red color with the white chicken….its like she is almost walking on a carpet out of her home!!

  2. Thanks for sharing, Marla. I’m so fond of this farm, in particular. There is something special about the landscape, the people and all that happens there. I’ll be occasionally sharing photographs from the farm over the next four or so months. I have lots of work ahead of me. – Ann
