Masks, vases, bowls and other ceramic works of a unique variety only appear at American River College’s ceramic department’s “X-Sale,” held by art classes 390 and 391.
This sale takes place at the end of every semester so money can be raised for the ceramic department.
The ceramics being sold were made by students and individual artists looking to sell their art.
Linda Gelfman is an art professor on campus who is leading the sale with her students.
“We’ve been selling our ceramics every year for 13 years. You can find us behind the ceramics lab room 502 at the end of each semester,” said Gelfman.
Lina I. Kalilets, a child care and development major, had some of her art sold at the X-Sale.
“I took this class last semester. It’s very fun and you get to be creative. I was happy to be able to have some of my art sold. The woman who bought them fell in love with them as soon as she saw them,” said Kalilets.
Success seems to gravitate around the X-Sale. According to Gelfman one student sold 15 pieces in one day.
“Even the individual artists see a lot of success here. I believe buyers appreciate the time and work that’s been put into these pieces.” said Gelfman.
The ceramics department also sells leftover art from students who never took their art with them.
“If you’re looking for a great holiday gift or just a unique piece of art please come support the ceramics department. We have a variety of pieces waiting for a home.” said Gelfman.
The X-Sale ends today at 2 p.m., with the pieces ranging in price from $5 to $15. In the evnt of rain, the sale will be located under the overhang near the theater department.
