Northwest art groups hosting annual spring art, pottery sale

The Clay Club and Art Association at Northwest Missouri State University present their annual Spring Art Show and Pottery Sale, April 26-27, in the Fire Arts Building, located south of the Olive DeLuce Fine Arts Building at West Third and Munn Avenue.  

Hours for the event are 4 to 8 p.m. Friday, April 26, and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, April 27. Artwork may be purchased by cash or check. A line of customers often forms before the show opens, so patrons are encouraged to come early.

Students from all studio emphasis areas are encouraged to participate, and the event features pottery for sale as well as displays of sculpture, paintings, drawings, prints and photographs.

Art student group Kappa Pi also will display information and offer small items for sale to raise funds for their international program, Kashmir Crossover, a partnership developed among Northwest art students and students at the University of Kashmir in Srinagar, Kashmir. 

“The Spring Art Show and Pottery Sale is an excellent opportunity to support our students in their studies here at Northwest while purchasing one-of-a-kind handmade gifts for the holidays,” said Laura Kukkee, associate professor of art. “Prices are extremely reasonable, and there should be something to fit everyone’s taste and budget.”

Kukkee added, 85 percent of the proceeds go directly to students to help offset the cost of art supplies. Remaining proceeds support art-oriented activities, visiting artists, field trips and other co-curricular activities for the Clay Club and Art Association.
