Art-Appeal, an exhibition and art sale, will be held Friday, June

furniture, sculpture, jewelry, and photographs will be among the
many pieces offered at the sale. A list of participating artists

The sale, organized by members of The Art Gallery's Board of Advisors,
is one of the many events offered throughout the university’s
Alumni Reunion Weekend. Purchases will support both the production
and presentation of the visual arts in the region; 50 percent of
the proceeds go to the artists, with the remaining proceeds earmarked
for exhibitions and programs presented by The Art Gallery.
A sale preview and reception in honor of the artists will be held
Friday, June 10, from 4:30 – 5:30 p.m. The sale begins immediately
following the reception, from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m., and continues
