I am wholly willing to be here / Between the bright silent thousands of stars / And the life of the grass pouring out of the ground. / The hill has grown to me like a foot. / Until I lift the Earth, I cannot move. - Wendell Berry

HALLOWELL, ME – The Harlow Gallery announces 13 artist/farm partnerships for Community Supporting Arts (CSA 2017) project taking place across Maine in 2017. Participating artists will visit their partner farms regularly beginning in January, at the very start of the 2017 growing season, creating art inspired by their farmer’s lives, work, and landscape.
All the participating farms are Community Supported Agriculture (CSA farms). A CSA farm sells shares at the beginning of the growing season and then provides fresh, seasonal food on a regular basis to each shareholding household throughout the growing season. CSA II will use the power of art to promote the economic and environmental benefits of organic farming and of buying locally grown food. Our food industry is a critical key to a sustainable economy and the health and well-being of Maine citizens in an age of accelerating climate change.
