Scholarship Sale to Benefit Art Students Opens

DEC. 1, 2009 | The University of Wisconsin-River Falls art department presents the Annual Scholarship Sale in Gallery 101, Kleinpell Fine Arts, December 2 13.

This annual event features one-of-a-kind artwork with a portion of sales going to a scholarship fund for continuing art students as well as the Art Society, a student organization. Participating artists retain 65-70 percent of the proceeds while the balance goes toward scholarships and the Art Society.

The annual sale offers a selection of studio arts including glass, ceramics, painting, fibers, jewelry, printmaking, photography and mixed media by current art students and faculty, alumni, retired faculty and a variety of local artisans who are excited to be a part of this worthy cause.

New this year is a raffle. Participating artists will raffle off their artwork; tickets start at a $1 each or $5 for six. This is a great way to win unique artwork and to help the art students because all proceeds from the raffle event will go directly into the scholarship fund.

Raffle tickets go on sale Wednesday, Dec. 2 at 9 a.m. in the gallery. The drawing will be held Saturday, Dec. 12 at 4:45 p.m. in Gallery 101; ticket holders need not be present to win. Special gallery hours for the sale will be 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. and 7 - 9 p.m. Monday through Friday, 2 6 p.m. Saturday and 2 - 4 p.m. and 7-9 p.m. Sunday. For more information call the UWRF art department at 715-425-3266.
