Lincoln, Neb.— The University of Nebraska–Lincoln School of Art, Art History & Design is hosting spring art sales by the UNL Clay Club and UNL Photo Club on May 6-7 in Richards Hall.
“Clay Club has a rich history within UNL and the greater Lincoln community, and we’re excited to connect with both new and established customers at our annual spring sale,” said Andy Bissonnette, a graduate ceramics student in the School of Art, Art History & Design and the president of the UNL Clay Club.
Hours for the Clay Club’s sale are Friday, May 6 from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday, May 7 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Their sale will take place in Richards Hall Rm. 117.
Hours for the Photo Sale are Friday, May 6 and Saturday, May 7 from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. in Richards Hall Rm. 112. Cash, checks and credit cards will be accepted at both sales.
The Clay Club Sale will include ceramic pottery and sculpture created by UNL graduate and undergraduate students available for purchase.
In addition to the sale, there will be a raffle of work donated by UNL faculty, graduate and undergraduate students. In conjunction with this year’s sale, UNL Clay Club will be collecting canned (and other non-perishable) food for donation to Husker Pantry. Every two non-perishable food items donated is worth one raffle ticket (maximum of five tickets per day, please). Any additional donations are welcome. Visit https://pantry.unl.edufor information on the most needed food items.
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 Photo Club is hosting a print sale featuring student artwork and zines for purchase.
They will also have a raffle for framed and unframed faculty and graduate student work. For the cost of $1, a ticket can be purchased for a chance to win one of the many donated artworks.
"The money raised will help the club members attend conferences, but most of the money will go back to the individual artists," said Penny Molesso, a graduate student in photography. "We hope to see lots of people there."
