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 annual 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, Nov. 29.

“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 20 student artists and six SWIC Art faculty members will have items for sale. The 150-plus works are mostly pottery, but the sale will also include encaustic paintings, jewelry and landscape and abstract paintings.

For more information, contact the Schmidt Art Center at 618-222-5ART (5278).
