Our Twitter account pdxcsa will post regular updates from the participating artists.

What Makes PDX-CSA Unique

  • The art is limited edition. No more than twenty pieces will be created specifically for 2015 PDX-CSA.

  • The art is affordable and of high quality. Each collection is three pieces of art by three different artists curated by Portland Open Studios.

  • The program is truly artist friendly. Artists receive the majority of their payment up front in order to fund the creation of their new work. Portland Open Studios takes only a 25% commission in support of our artist-focused mission.

  • The program provides the perfect balance of choice and surprise. Before purchasing a collection, you will know the artists involved, be able to see representative images of their work, and read their project intent. But you won’t know exactly what you’ve bought until the delivery date! You’re truly funding three artists’ unique philosophies and visions—as well as their flexibility to be fully creative.

  • The program supports the artist-collector relationship. Follow your artists’ progress through regular online updates, meet the artists at program kickoff and conclusion events, and visit their studios after the program is completed.
