Bernadette Witzack (MFA 2013) is one of 10 artists chosen for the inaugural year of CSArt Madison.
Much like Community Supported Agriculture programs, in which shareholders invest in a local farm and receive shares of fruits and vegetables, CSArt Madison asks shareholders to invest directly in the arts community with a ‘buy local’ mentality. Participating artists — selected by the ALL Curatorial Board through an open call process — will each receive a stipend to create 60 “shares” for the program (50 for shareholders, 9 for the other participating artists, and 1 for ALL’s permanent collection). Interested collectors or “shareholders” purchase a share, and in return, receive one piece of locally-produced artwork from each of the ten featured artists.Shares cost $300 and will be available for purchase online or in the gallery. On July 29, 2017 shares will be distributed at a pick-up event and exhibition reception providing opportunities for artists and patrons to further connect. ALL will also organize studio visits to take place during May and June for artists to receive feedback and support from the Curatorial Board, and for the public to learn more about the artists.
