Unique artwork will be featured during Montcalm Community College’s annual Holiday Time Art Show and Sale, Nov. 28 through Dec. 4 in the Instruction North Building Art Gallery on the college’s Sidney campus.
The event features an open house and an artwork sale. Hours are 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Nov. 28 through Dec. 2 and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Dec. 3 and 4. Work from MCC’s art students and art club members will be featured, as well as pieces created by community members.
MCC art student Fallon Carter, who will have pieces on display, touches base with the nature of her artwork. She is inspired by many artists but thrives by exploring her boundless imagination.
“By looking at my art, I hope people find inspiration to focus on the beauty and capture it in whatever way they know how, whether it is drawing, writing, singing—the list goes on,” Carter says.
She hopes her audience will interpret the beauty in her art and appreciate what they might not recognize as beauty. Carter is a sophomore at MCC and plans to transfer to Kendall College of Art and Design in Grand Rapids.
MCC Visual Arts Coordinator Carolyn Johnson says the community is fortunate to have the opportunity to view and purchase pieces from many talented artists.
“It’s exciting to offer such a diverse collection of artwork during this show. Many of the pieces are offered for sale, which allows our community members to buy locally for holiday gift-giving,” she says. “Not only are patrons able to support American-made products, but their gifts will be unique creations by area artists.”
The Holiday Time Art Show and Sale is sponsored by the MCC Art Club. Light refreshments will be served during the sale.
