The donated artwork pictured represents just a few of the pieces that will be available during the Bacchanal 2008 auction.
Featured work includes a stoneware platter by Susan DeMay, a ceramic artist and Vanderbilt University faculty member; a hand-blown glass lamp by Curtiss Brock, professor of glass at Tennessee Tech University’s Appalachian Center for Craft; wood sculpture titled Aloha Series #38 Mango Burl by renowned artist Brad Sells; a screen printed 100 percent silk pillow by Jeanne Brady, associate professor of fibers at the Craft Center; and an oil on canvas landscape painting by regional artist Mitchell White.
The live auction of these and other items highlight an exciting community event that supports scholarships and programs in art and fine craft at TTU and the Craft Center.
