Find Handmade Items from GWU Students, Faculty and Staff at Annual Event

BOILING SPRINGS, N.C.—The Annual Christmas Art Sale, sponsored by the Gardner-Webb University Art Club, is the place to find unique handmade gifts for the people on your list. 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.”
