The 28th annual Printmakers’ Exhibition and Sale will be held from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 7, in room 127 of Illinois State University’s Center for the Visual Arts. All sale items are original artworks by Illinois State students, faculty, staff and visiting artists.
Hundreds of prints will be on display with most prices ranging from $2 to $50. Payment may be made by cash, check or credit card. The net proceeds from the sales of prints by students will support Illinois State’s printmaking program.
There will be five silent auctions with prints from artists Sarah Smelser, Morgan Price, Richard Finch and Rudy Pozzatti. One hundred percent of proceeds from selected works will go to the Printmaking Student Travel Fund to support student participation in national conferences.
