The Compound Gallery’s art subscription service, Art in a Box, began in 2009, and has delivered over 1,500 original works of art (made by Bay Area artists) to subscribers all over the world. For 2013, we are excited to announce the launch of our first limited edition ceramic plate series, and this ain’t your grandma’s plate collection. We are working with some of the finest Bay Area artists to create a series of one of a kind plates that collectors will love to eat their peas off of. There are only 12 editions available for 2013!
LAUNCHING FRIDAY MARCH 15TH, 3PM PST!
Why have we chosen this delightfully practical medium for our latest project? Because we love functional art and we love the idea of bringing back the tradition of fine artists working with the ceramic plate. We are making plate collecting a modern experience. Who wouldn’t want to eat his/her mashed potatoes and green beans on a set of magnificent one of a kind plates?
Art in a Box is offering collectors an opportunity to acquire one of a kind works of art on ceramic plates by exceptional Bay Area artists. Of course, subscribers will have to appreciate the unexpected because they won’t be able to select which artist’s work they will receive. (Although, we will be offering collectors the opportunity to select one of their plates in person, at the Compound Gallery during the Outside the Box exhibition from March 16th- April 28th, 2013 on a first come basis).
