Phi Beata Heata Jewelry Sale


Now this is our version of micro-small business Tuesday - businesses before they are businesses, buying from artists while they are still students. It's the student-made jewelry sale in the Lamar Dodd School of Art, 10 am to 3 pm, today only.



UPDATE: I was just over there and... it's a ceramics sale, too. Through tomorrow. Presents!

Ceramics & jewelry and metals sale in LDSOA


Student work from the school of art is on sale today from until 5 p.m., get your original pottery and jewelry from the hands that made it:

The Ceramics Student Organization, the student group for ceramics majors, and the Phi Beata Heata, the student organization for jewelry and metalwork majors are holding two different art sales at the same time to raise money for their separate student groups.
Half of the proceeds from the pottery sold will go to help the members of the Ceramics Student Organization attend the National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts conference this year. The other half will go straight to the students who made the art.
Thirty percent of the money earned from the jewelry and metalwork sale will go toward keeping the art rooms supplied with equipment and supplies, and the rest of the money earned will go to the student artists selling their work.

Support for the programs, a chance for the students to offer their work to the public and unique gifts for your family. Great for everyone.

MFA at Aurum Studios



Inroads connecting town-and-gown are some of the most important in our localized orbit. Downtown Athens stalwart Aurum Studios is partnering with the Lamar Dodd School of Art to create new opportunities for UGA art students:

The University of Georgia Lamar Dodd School of Art and Aurum Studios in downtown Athens will present the inaugural LDSOA/Aurum Studios Juried Exhibition and Sale April 19 from 6-8:30 p.m. at Aurum Studios, located at 125 E. Clayton St. The juried exhibition presents two-and three-dimensional artwork created by master of fine arts students. 


"Whenever I see student work displayed at the art building, I am so impressed with the quality and creativity and feel regret that more people do not have the opportunity to see it," said [Aurum owner Tricia] Ruppersburg, a member of the art school's board of visitors. "While Aurum Studios is primarily a jewelry store, we thoroughly enjoy the gallery aspect of our shop, showing work by artists in many media and being able to brag on them and share their work with the public."

The UGA community: thinking globally, acting locally.
