OCAC’s annual Student & Alumni Holiday Sale offers a venue for over 60 artist makers to sell their work. As always, the great array and variety of the high-quality work that comes from the OCAC community. 30-50% of the total sales go toward student scholarships and the remainder to the artists themselves. Last year was a record breaker 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 Pre-Event festivities kick off at 5:00 p.m on Friday, the 23rd (the day after Thanksgiving) with an hour of live music, hors d’oeuvres and fine refreshments before the doors open for the sale at 6:00 p.m.. The first 100 shoppers at the Pre-Event will receive OCAC shopping bags. Bring your friends, family and colleagues 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. Suggested donation Friday of $10, and all Pre-event attendees receive a raffle ticket upon entry.
