Ceramics Sale Benefits VSU Art and Design Students

Artist: Karley Hamm

VALDOSTA — Valdosta State University’s Department of Art and Design will host its 18th annual Holiday Ceramics Sale from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 6, and Saturday, Dec. 7, in Room 1054 of the Fine Arts Building.

All of the pieces available for purchase were created by VSU students currently enrolled in advanced ceramics courses. A selection of “beautiful, functional, and affordable” items — mugs, bowls, pitchers, jars, vases, plates, platters, and more — will be available for purchase during this two-day event.

“Our students work very hard throughout the semester to build their skills and to express their creativity with clay, and the holiday sale is their opportunity to showcase their dedication to craftsmanship, to bring awareness to our department, and to gain real-life experience in promoting themselves as artists,” Errol said. “Sharing their well-made items really helps build our community, bring in visiting artists, and give our students firsthand experience on the business side of being an artist. We hope to see you all for this wonderful tradition.” 

Proceeds will benefit the individual student artists and their pursuit of a fine arts education at VSU, as well as the Department of Art and Design’s Visiting Artist Fund, which allows the university to bring visiting ceramics artists to the campus for one- or two-day workshops and lectures.

The Fine Arts Building is located at the intersection of Brookwood Drive and Oak Street. Please note that only cash and checks will be accepted.
