Exciting news! Attention UE community artists and crafters; This year the Department of Art is planning a Handcrafted Wreath Exhibition to run in conjunction with the Annual UE Art and Craft Christmas Sale.

Please invite your creative family and friends to participate.

The Wreath Exhibition, will open on December 2 and run through December 13. All categories of art are eligible.

It does not need to be holiday themed. It could be painted, hammered, or glued, large or small, traditional or non-traditional. You may offer your wreath for sale, but are not required to do so. We are looking forward to seeing a variety of creative responses to the Wreath theme!

Entries for the Wreath Exhibition will be accepted on Thursday and Friday, November 21stand 22nd in either the Peterson Gallery during normal hours of 12:00 PM to 6PM on Thursday and 12:00 PM to 3:00 PM on Friday or in the Art Office, Krannert Hall of Fine Arts, Room 212, from 8:00 AM to 3:00 PM.

All artists and crafters wanting to participate can deliver their items for sale to the Peterson Gallery during the regularly scheduled hours of 12:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. on Wednesday, December 4.

Again, anyone in the UE community who creates art & crafts is invited to participate in these events. This includes spouses, children, relatives and friends.
