Student Art Sales are May 6-7 | Nebraska today

The University of Nebraska-Lincoln School of Art, Art History, and Design Hosts Spring Art Sales by the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Clay Club and Photo Club university on May 6 and 7 at Richards Hall.

“Clay Club has a rich history within ONE and the greater Lincoln community, and we are excited to connect with new and established customers at our annual Spring Sale,” said Andy Bissonnette, graduate ceramics student in the School of Art, History of art and design and president of the Clay Club.

Clay Club hours of sale are 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. May 6 and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. May 7. Their sale will take place at Richards Hall, room 117.

Photo sale hours are 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. May 6 and 7 at Richards Hall, Room 112. Cash, checks and credit cards will be accepted at both sales.

The Clay Club sale will include pottery and ceramic sculptures created by Nebraska U graduate and undergraduate students available for purchase.

In addition to the sale, there will be a raffle of works donated by professors, graduate and undergraduate students. Along with this year’s sale, the Clay Club will collect canned food (and other non-perishables) to donate to Husker Pantry. Each donation of two non-perishable items is worth one raffle ticket (maximum of five tickets per day, please). Any additional donation is welcome. Visit the Husker Pantry website for information on the most needed food items.

Proceeds from the sale go to the artists, along with funding for the Clay Club. This student-run organization brings guest artists into the community and sends students to national clay conferences.

The Photo Club is holding a print sale featuring art and student zines for purchase.

They will also have a raffle for both supervised and unsupervised work from faculty and graduate students. For the cost of $1, a ticket can be purchased for a chance to win one of the many works of art given away.

“Money raised will help club members attend conferences, but most of the money will go to individual artists,” said graduate photography student Penny Molesso. “We hope to see a lot of people there.

Richards Hall is located at Stadium Drive and T streets on the University City campus. Public parking is available at the Stadium Drive garage. For more information, call the School of Art, Art History, and Design at 402-472-5522 or email [email protected]
