BOILING SPRINGS, N.C.— Gardner-Webb University’s annual Christmas Art Sale will take place on Nov. 16-17 from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. in the Tucker Student Center. The sale features original pieces by Gardner-Webb students, alumni, faculty, and community members. A variety of items will be available for purchase including pottery, jewelry, paintings, photography, fiber arts, and wood crafts, all of which make perfect gifts for the holiday season.

“Our annual Christmas Art Sale highlights the creative energy of our students, art faculty, and the GWU community,” explained Susan Bell, Gardner-Webb Professor of Art.  “The students operate the sale and learn marketing skills in the process, an important practical component of their education. Come support the artists and enjoy beautiful handmade art at reasonable prices.”

A percentage of the proceeds also goes towards the GWU Art Club, providing funding for museum trips and other opportunities for art students.  “The sale proceeds helped three students to afford our semi-annual New York City museum tour this year,” Bell explained, “allowing them to be immersed in some of the world’s greatest museums.”
