The holidays are right around the corner, and finding gifts for loved ones is number one on the to-do list.

Luckily, the University of Louisiana at Monroe Annual Holiday Art Sale took place last week, Monday, Dec. 4 through Friday, Dec. 8. 

The School of Visual and Performing Arts sale was held in Bry Gallery.

Students, faculty and alumni make art during the semester that they then put up for sale. Pottery, prints and paintings are just a few of the many things that were available for purchase.

Brooke Foy, assistant professor of art at ULM, said that people from the community and surrounding cities love the art sale.

“People come looking for handmade, one-of-a-kind art works and crafts,” Foy said.

The artist keeps most of the money earned from their work, but 15% of all sales was donated to the art fraternity, Kappa Pi. These students put together the entire gallery and are required to work the sale during finals week.

Aiden Warren, a senior art major, said the art sale is a great opportunity for fellow students and faculty to come show their support of the ULM Art Department.

“We have beautiful works for reasonable prices that are perfect gifts for the holiday season,” Warren said.

Whether someone was looking for a statement piece of art or simply a set of dish ware, the art department was excited to see people stop by the sale.
