“We are excited for our Clay Club sale this spring,” said Dehmie Dehmlow, a graduate student in the School of Art, Art History & Design and the president of the Clay Club. “We are grateful to be partnering with the LUX, a local arts center that is a pillar in the Lincoln arts and broader community.”
Dehmlow said the group is eager to hold an in-person sale this spring.
“We are looking forward to having an in-person Clay Club Sale where we can show the great work made by our graduate and undergraduate students and engage with our community again,” Dehmlow said.
The Clay Club Sale will include works of art created by graduate students, undergraduate students, alumni and faculty in the School of Art, Art History & Design representing a broad range of aesthetics, techniques and concepts.
Proceeds from the sale go to the artists, as well as funding the Clay Club. This student-run organization brings in visiting artists to the community and sends students to national clay conferences.
The Clay Club will be participating in a raffle put on by the LUX Center that will include a number of pieces by UNL faculty and students. The proceeds from the raffle will support the LUX.
