HUNTINGTON, IN -- The Huntington College Department of Art will host its second annual Christmas Sale December 14-15 at the Robert E. Wilson Gallery of the Merillat Centre for the Arts.

"'Tis the season of gift giving and what better way to show your loved ones how much you care than by giving them a unique, hand-made work of art?" asks Professor Rebecca Coffman . "Various art students will have works ranging from jewelry and pottery to drawings and photographs."

Works by Huntington faculty will also be offered for sale. Department chair Kenneth Hopper will offer acrylic portraits done either from a sitting or from a photograph. Coffman, an award- winning ceramicist, will have hand-made casserole dishes, luminarias and other pieces available.

Sale hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Thursday, December 14, and 9 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. on Friday, December 15.

"This is the place for those one of a kind gifts for that special someone," Coffman says. For further information, contact the Merillat Centre for the Arts at (260) 356-6000, extension 2060.
