We were more than happy to part with $50 for this:

NurtureArt, a non-profit dedicated to helping promising artists become self-supporting professionals, asked twelve of their artists to contribute to a collection of works called Fresh — signed and dated photographs, illustrations, digital prints, and mixed media that come packed in a pastry box (Fluxus artists in the 60s used to do similar kinds of projects). It's $50, plus $5.95 shipping.

You can look over the works at their website, (click on the 'shopping' and then 'artwork' sections). Fresh was produced in a limited edition of 100.

Young professionals looking for a chance to hang out with same should know about the new ACCESS group, which is under the City Center umbrella. The group attends events there (Eddie Izzard is coming up) and there are volunteer opportunities with the center's education outreach program. The launch party is tomorrow, 9/17, at City Center's Studio 4, 130 W. 56th [6th/7th] 212.763.1206, from 6:30-9:30pm. $25 gets you in, plus food from, among others, Osteria del Circo and Petrossian, Beaulieu Vineyards wines, and more.

Ballet's Peter Boal performs "A Shropshire Lad" at Theatre of the Riverside Church, 120th and RSD, on Thursday at 8pm. Tickets are $25. More info at
