Humboldt State art students showcase work in artisan fair
ARCATA- A group of students are attempting to provide inspiration to striving artists. On Thursday, young artisans at Humboldt State University had a chance to sell their work for profit.
“Even if it's not your major, studio arts is not you major, I think it's a very approachable realm in life and I think really anybody could step into these doors and find something they love and be inspired,” HSU Senior and Organizer Victoria Bruner said.
Three clubs and nearly 30 students showed off their work at the Fall Artisans and Arts Fair on campus. Students in HSU’s Museum and Gallery Practices course organized the fair as part of a final project. The two-day event was open to the community and allowed students to get paid for their hard work this semester. Student artists paid a fee for the table, but could take home all revenue made.
“It's a great opportunity for students who may never had had an opportunity to display their work and let alone sell their work and it comes with the holiday so it's a great time for students to get last minute Christmas gifts and things like that,” HSU Senior and Organizer Brianna Goldstein said.
