Scholarship Art Sale Fall 2023 at Gallery 120

Now through Thursday, December 14, 2023

Gallery 120 at Inver Hills Community College is hosting the Scholarship Art Sale for fall semester 2023 now through Thursday, December 14, 2023. The sale features artwork created by area artists, including Inver Hills faculty, staff, and students.

Forty percent of sold work from artists goes toward art scholarships; 100 percent of proceeds from donated work goes toward art scholarships. Gallery 120 accepts credit and debit cards, checks, and cash—the latter needs to be exact change.

“The Gallery 120 Scholarship Art Sale is a great opportunity to support local artists, artisans, and our art students,” said Janell Hammer, Gallery 120  coordinator. “People can shop ceramics and framed or hanging work as well as repurposed, recycled, handmade, and/or wearable goods.”

Art shows and exhibitions are hosted at the Gallery 120 brick-and-mortar location in the atrium of the Fine Arts building on the Inver Hills Community College campus in Inver Grove Heights, Minnesota.
