If you want to snag some one-of-a-kind
treasures for the art lovers on your holiday gift list this year, check out the
inaugural Pottery and Art Sale featuring works created by SWIC art students, as
well as a few faculty members.
The William and Florence Schmidt Art
Center at the Southwestern Illinois College Belleville Campus will host the
sale from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 1 and Friday, Dec. 2.
“Many colleges and universities hold
pottery sales during this time of the year. We thought the Schmidt would be the
perfect location to host the student art sale,” said Curator Nicole Dutton. “It
will provide a wonderful addition to our students’ resumes to be able to say
they have sold their art.”
More than 10 student artists will have
pieces for sale. Three SWIC art faculty members will have items as well. The
150-plus works are mostly pottery, but the sale will also include encaustic
paintings, Chinese brush drawings and landscape and abstract paintings.
