Over the last twenty years, Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) has become a popular way for consumers to buy seasonal food directly from local farms. With the same “buy local” spirit in mind, the Community Supported Art (CSA) Valpo project supports local art, artists, and collectors.

Phil Herrold has enjoyed all things artistic, since he was a child. Born in 1989 and raised in the cornfields of Wanatah, Indiana, is something you probably wouldn’t have guessed based on the eccentricity and flare of his paintings. With only a little formal training, besides college classes here or there, Phil’s natural talent has created a style that is uniquely his own. As a young artist, his next step is to begin sharing his art with the public through his online gallery, online representation, and gallery shows. Phil wants to expand his opportunity through online submissions and gallery interviews. According to Phil,
Art, for me, is a way I can express challenging feelings that are otherwise hard to approach. In my work, I hope to create pieces that allow others to do the same as they personally connect with my work from the context of their own lives.
