Students host 35th annual ceramics and jewelry sale at UW-Whitewater
November 29, 2012
Art and design students are gearing up to host their annual ceramics and jewelry sale at UW-Whitewater. The event, which features work from students and professors, will mark its 35th year.
"This was started as a means of building funds to bring in visiting artists, and to date the ceramics program and club has brought to campus well over 60 visiting artists, with many of those artists having national and international notoriety for their ceramic artwork," said Jared Janovec, associate professor of art at UW-Whitewater.
The sale, held by the Department of Art and Design, features everything from decorative pots to earrings, and the price range fits all budgets. Retired professors also contribute pieces.
"We have many repeat customers year after year, and if it's anything like years past, there will be people lined up and waiting for the sale to open," Janovec said. "It's great to be part of a successful ceramics program, and it's also great to be reminded of the public's interest in supporting artists and the work they make."
The sale will be held in the Greenhill Center of the Arts atrium on Monday, Dec. 3, from 5:30 to 8 p.m.; Tuesday, Dec. 4, from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m.; and 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 5.
