Walking through the cafeteria you can see the door to Room 1 draped with colorful Christmas lights and a sign that reads “Holiday Art Sale.”

The annual Holiday Art Sale is the Kondos Gallery’s “bread and butter,” according to Jennifer Griffen, an instructor assistant in art.

“The gallery receives no outside help,” Griffen says. “We get a $1,500 yearly stipend and the rest of our revenue comes from our annual art sale.”

Art student Barbara Gouvea, who does silk screen shirts, also helps with the sale.

“As participating art students we receive 85 percent of the price marked and the gallery receives 15 percent for their help and support,” Gouvea says.

The art sale is traditionally held in the art gallery, but since the new Fine Arts building and Kondos Gallery are under construction and won’t be finished until next year, the event moved temporarily to the cafeteria meeting rooms.

“We’ve seen more traffic this year than usual but sales are not significantly better,” says Griffen. “We are getting more exposure to different types of customers being here in the cafeteria.”

The art is a collection from current students, faculty and art student alumni. Anyone is welcome to participate in the sale. There are even hand-blown glass ornaments for sale from Girls Glass, where they teach classes in glassworks.

“I’m just checking to see if there is anything new today,” says Dean of Planning, Research and Instructional Effectiveness Marybeth Buechner. “I came yesterday but I don’t want to miss anything.”

The art sale is the first week of December annually.

“We encourage anyone to participate, any medium of art is accepted,” says Griffen. “We hope to be back in the new gallery by fall of next year.”
