The event will be held on Nov. 17-18 from 4 to 8 p.m. and Nov. 19-20 from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. in Tucker Student Center. Chris Dover, president of the Art Club, said art majors look forward to displaying and selling their work each year. “This semester we will have around 20 vendors,” he shared. “In addition to art majors, we will have faculty and outside artists participating this year. The sale will include paintings, drawings, ceramics, jewelry, crocheted items, and much more.” Dover explained that a percentage of the proceeds goes to the Art Club to help fund field trips and materials for the Art Club. “This year, the sale will be on the main floor of the Tucker Student Center rather than one of the halls,” he stated. “We’re hoping that this will make it easier for customers to come and see our items. Everyone should come out to support their local artists, find some holiday gifts, and enjoy our amazing artwork.” Learn more about the Department of Communication, Art and Design.
