Dordt artists to sell work at Centre Mall

November 23, 2006

Art Sale

Original artwork perfect for holiday gift-giving will be available for purchase at the Centre Mall in Sioux Center Thursday through Saturday, Nov. 30-Dec. 2, during regular mall hours.

Photography, ceramics, drawings, paintings and other forms of art by more than 60 Dordt College students, alumni and art instructors will be on display in the center court area.

“The sale is an important link between the college and Sioux Center, allowing us to share what we are doing in the art department and providing affordable original artwork for people’s homes,” said Susan Van Geest, assistant professor of art at Dordt.

The art sale provides hands-on learning for the students, who have taken the responsibility of displaying the work, advertising and providing customer service. “This is an opportunity for students to both use their artistic gifts to serve the community and get the valuable learning experience of how to price their art work, how to market it with integrity and how to select the kind of work that has consumer appeal.” said Van Geest.
