I’ve just heard of a novel concept.  Nashville-based Seed Space, is offering the opportunity  to “buy local” and support community art.  For $250 or $500 dollars, you can buy “shares” of the bounty of top Nashville artists such as the incomparable Herb Williams, Sher Fick, Derek Cote,   Ryan Hogan, Emily Leonard, Jodi Hays, and more.  Depending on your participation, you will receive a ‘basket’ of 5 or 10 pieces of their original work.    The idea was inspired by the community farms movement, except this harvest won’t spoil.   Read more by clicking here.  If you are a collector, this is an opportunity of a lifetime!!

While not local, Berlin based Yago Hortal’s paintings are about as fresh as it gets.
