Annual Holiday Art Scholarship Sale to be Held

NOV. 17, 2007--Art can be an investment as well as a gift that keeps on giving--consider this when you're buying for the person who has everything.

To help you find that perfect, unique gift for the person who is hard to buy for, the UWRF art department is hosting its annual Scholarship Sale in Gallery 101 of the Kleinpell Fine Arts building from Nov. 29 to Dec. 14.

The array of works available for purchase includes intricately wrought ornaments, glassworks, ceramics, paintings, fibers, jewelry, printmaking, photography and mixed media. Participating artists range from students, faculty, alumni and local artisans, all eager to contribute to the UWRF art department scholarship fund through their art.

The sale benefits a scholarship fund for continuing students as well as the Art Society, a student organization. Participating artists retain 65 to 70 percent of the proceeds, and the balance goes to the scholarship fund. Organizers say it is great place to find holiday gifts, as every purchase supports local artists and gives back to benefit deserving students.

Gallery 101 is open Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and 7 to 9 p.m. and Sunday from 2 to 4 p.m.
