23rd Annual Holiday Art Sale

The 23rd Annual Holiday Art Sale was held Dec. 3, 4 and 5, 2009, at the Tarble Arts Center. It was a record-breaking year. Thank you to all the artists who sold items and to the wonderful people who came and bought them. The proceeds from this sale go to support the art department scholarship fund. We hope to see you all again next year. Click on a picture below for a sample of items available this year.
