Get a gift for the art lover in your life at the SWIC Pottery & Art Sale Nov. 26

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 Southwestern Illinois Colle Art students, as well as a few faculty members.

The William and Florence Schmidt Art Center at the SWIC Belleville Campus will host the sale from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Tuesday, Nov. 26.

“We thought the Schmidt would be the perfect location to host the student art sale,” said Interim Curator Paula Haniszewski. “It will provide a wonderful addition to our students’ résumés to be able to say they have sold their art.”

More than 50 artists will contribute to the pottery and art sale. The 150-plus works are mostly pottery, but the sale will also include encaustic paintings, jewelry and landscape and abstract paintings.
