BOILING SPRINGS, N.C.—Unique, handmade gift items are available at Gardner-Webb University’s annual Christmas Art Sale on Nov. 15-16 from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. in the Tucker Student Center. The sale features original pieces by GWU students, alumni, faculty, and community members. A variety of items will be available for purchase including functional and decorative pottery, jewelry, paintings, photography, knitted scarves, ear warmers and hats, cards, barn quilts, Christmas ornaments and more.

“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.”

A percentage of the proceeds also goes towards the GWU Art Club, providing funding for museum trips and other learning opportunities for art students. “Come support the artists and enjoy beautiful handmade art at reasonable prices,” Bell asserted.
