The Clay Guild, a Ball State student art organization, is hosting its spring pottery sale April 25-27 in the Art and Journalism Building Atrium.

From 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., students will sell ceramic bowls, cups, pitchers, vases and other useful items. The proceeds from the fundraiser go directly to students and the visiting artist program.

"The visiting art program is critical to the ceramics area and brings exposure and diversity to the students and community," said Ted Neal, assistant professor of art. "Inviting national and local artists, educators and professionals to our campus provides illumination to new concepts, viewpoints and techniques."

This year, student sales of ceramics have generated funds for three visiting artists on campus.

The sale is open to the public. For more information, contact Neal at (765) 285-5800 or tneal2@bsu.edu.
