RVCC TO HOLD ANNUAL HOLIDAY ART SHOW, SALE
Raritan Valley Community College?s (RVCC) Visual and Performing Arts Department will present its annual Holiday Art Show and Sale, Tuesday through Friday, December 2-5. The exhibition will be on view in the Art Gallery at the College?s North Branch Campus.
The Holiday Art Show and Sale will feature a varied display of ceramics created by RVCC students, instructors and several alumni. The ceramic work ranges from low-fire smoked and Raku vessels to high-fire functional and sculptural pieces in porcelain and stoneware. The ceramics program at RVCC is known for its wide range of glazes, so the display is expected to be especially colorful and bright.
This year the show also will feature hand-painted silk scarves by artist Vera Tarantino, handmade books by Maria Pisano and drawings and pottery by RVCC adjunct faculty member Sarah Roche.
An opening reception will be held Tuesday, December 2, at noon. Refreshments will be served. Show hours are Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, noon-8 p.m.; Friday, noon-6 p.m. For further information, call 908-218-8876.
