Currently Obsessed With: Art in a Box

July 16, 2009

Pretty sure I just found an awesome birthday gift to give to myself:

The Compound Gallery, located in Oakland, offers a subscription service featuring the works of local Bay Area artists. You can choose either a standard $30 ‘Supporter’ package or $50 ‘Collector’ package, both with a 3 month minimum. The Collector Package includes bonus pieces and shipping, as well!

Each piece you get is a surprise, but you can email your preferred mediums: choose from painting, printmaking, photography, mixed media, watercolor, drawing, collage, ceramic, and sculpture. And if you don’t like what you get, the gallery will be having exclusive subscriber events that include the chance to trade pieces with other subscribers.

What an absolutely amazing idea is this? I’ve entertained the thought of ‘investing’ in artwork many a time, but this way I don’t have to feel pressured to have good taste! From what I can tell though, it’s a pretty safe bet that subscribers shouldn’t be disappointed.
