Club Mud Exhibition returns for annual Spring Sale
Georgia Southern University’s annual Club Mud Spring Exhibition and Sale will celebrate its 24th year May 1 through May 3. More than 40 undergraduate and graduate art students will exhibit their work in ceramics, porcelain, stoneware, jewelry, small metals, prints and handmade books.
‘Every year Club Mud changes,” says Jane Pleak, professor of ceramics. ‘We have different students working on different projects and research.”
Consistent from year to year is the opportunity for student artists to show their work, network with the public and earn money. Club Mud, says Pleak, gives art students the opportunity to ‘see what it’s like to become a professional artist.”
Students exhibit and sell artwork they have created over the semester in a variety of courses, from Ceramics, Sculpture and Jewelry Making.
‘The local community really enjoys [Club Mud],” continues Pleak, ‘They like to support and encourage young artists and, over the years, see the student work evolve and get better.”
This year, Club Mud takes place from 10 a.m. until 9 p.m. Thursday and Friday, May 1 and May 2, and from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, May 3. Located in and around the Ceramics and Sculpture Studio on 236 Forest Drive, admission is free of charge. The prices of student work will vary.
