The Lyon College Clay Club and Art Student League are teaming up for a Lyon College Art Sale taking place from 2:30 p.m.-6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, March 14, and 10 a.m.-1 p.m. on Wednesday, March 15, at the Mabee-Simpson Library. There will be multiple tables set up with different works to purchase from including pottery, paintings, prints, stickers, and more!
“I’m really excited about having an on-campus art sale,” said Kim Ho, Art, Computer Science, and Data Science triple major and Clay Club President. “Lyon College’s art students are so incredibly talented, and the College’s Art department does a great job of providing avenues for students to grow.”
Kim said events like these help promote dialogue and interaction with artwork which in her experience, “is really encouraging.”
“Currently six students have signed up to sell work, and each of these students would have their own table space,” said Kim. “Student-work wise, we have around 60 pottery pieces ready with 40-50 more ready to be fired. Apart from that, there will be at least 10-15 drawings, approximately 10 stickers, and 5-10 paintings and prints.”
In addition to each student-led table, KILT Radio plans to have a table selling bandanas with screen-printed designs, and the Art Student League will have their own table with t-shirts showcasing manhole prints from around campus.
The money raised throughout the event will not only benefit the students, but also their respective departments. 10% of all sales of student work will go toward Lyon College’s Art department, while The Kilted Kiln and Clay Club’s funds will go fully towards the ceramics department. The Art Student League’s sales will be used to fund future art events.
“This is an opportunity to showcase our art in a less structured fashion, compared to gallery exhibits, and gain more exposure,” said Kim.
