Harvest CSA


What is Harvest?

Based on the model of community supported agriculture (CSA) programs, CSAs for art have sprung up all over the country in the last few years. Harwood Art Center is pleased to present New Mexico’s first art CSA, "Harvest," in partnership with community coordinators Jill Riester and Rachel Harris-Huffman.

Harvest CSA provides an opportunity for new collectors ("shareholders") to connect with local artists and for each participating artist to explore their practice in a new way, for an alternative purpose and with financial support. Each of our 40 Harvest CSA Shareholders will receive a box of thoughtfully curated, original pieces from 10 local artists.

There are still a few shares available (yes, even now in 2017), so order online today!

HARWOOD STORIES

Richard Goulis

Former Harwood Employee

In 1992, I answered a HELP WANTED ad for substitute teachers at Escuela del Sol Montessori. There I met Friedje, who astutely noticed I had some experience in organizing artists and arts organizations. I began searching for interested artists and set out creating art workshops for the community. We soon began offering about 30 workshops, in everything from pinhole photography, drawing, performance art, to ceramics, mask making, video production and more.  After this successful summer session, I was offered a managerial position and began to see what could come of the newly minted “Harwood Art Center.”  After about one year we had 65 amazing artists in the studios, with a growing waiting list of well over 50 people, a working performance space, dance floor and darkroom, various gallery spaces, as well as classes just about every night of the week.
