Local art patrons are welcome to attend the annual Art Scholarship Sale, from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday at Rarick Hall on the Fort Hays State University campus.
The sale will feature artwork by students, faculty, alumni and area artists -- done in a variety of media such as paintings, prints and drawings as well as handmade books, mugs and cast-iron skillets.
Faculty and student participants include Gordon Sherman, professor of art and design; Josh Knott, hometown graduate student; Charmion Arthur, instructor of art and design; and Lee Powers, chair of the Department of Art and Design. Participating local artists are Michael Jilg, Kathleen Kuchar, John C. Thorns and Pete Felten.
The event will include a wood block press in Rarick Hall, room 108, which will imprint any participant's T-shirt with original wood-cut art. The room will also have T-shirts for sale.
The sale, open to the public, will go to fund art scholarships. The event is sponsored by the FHSU Department of Art and Design.
