OCAC’s annual Student Holiday Sale offers a venue for 60 plus artist makers to sell their works. As always, the characteristic great array of the high-quality work that comes from the OCAC community will be available for your shopping pleasure. And remember, 30-50% of the total sales go towards student scholarships and the remainder to the artists themselves. Last year a record breaking $16,300 plus of hand crafted pieces was sold; a great year for OCAC’s scholarship fund raising efforts.
Art is available from $1.00-$100, with an average price of $25. The pieces range from humorous to glamorous, functional to decorative and come in many shapes, sizes, and media. Ceramic objects are a highlight of the sale, as are unique hand crafted jewelry. Other popular pieces include knitted ornaments, hand-dyed silk scarves, hand-made books, prints and much more.
The sale is kicked off by a one hour of Pre-Event festivities at 5:00 p.m. on Friday Nov. 23. The first 100 shoppers will receive OCAC shopping bags and will enjoy live music, hor d’oeuvres and refreshments before the sale begins at 6:00 p.m. Bring your friends to the Pre-Event and increase your chances of walking away with a certificate for Sunday brunch at the Hands on Café, an original piece of artwork, or free tuition to a Studio School weekend workshop of your choice, and more. Suggested donation of $10. On Friday pre-event attendees will receive a raffle ticket upon entry.
