Handmade Artwork at Discounted Prices at Annual Studio Sale

MILLVILLE – WheatonArts and Cultural Center will kick off the annual Studio Sale on Friday, Nov. 25 at 10 a.m. in the WheatonArts Event Center. The highly anticipated sale will feature a wide variety of WheatonArts prototypes, seconds and overstocks. In addition to the WheatonArts glass selection, pottery by artist Terry Plasket and his assistants will be available for purchase. Studio glass by Vermont-based artists Melanie and David Leppla will be on sale as well. The handmade glass and ceramics pieces will be discounted 30%-70% off of original prices.

WheatonArts members are invited to a special members-only preview at 9:30 a.m. on Friday, Nov. 25. Admission to WheatonArts is waived for the entire weekend, Nov. 25-27, through the Wheaton Wide Open initiative, sponsored by the PNC Arts Alive! program. On the opening day of the Studio Sale, the annual Glass Blast will take place in the Glass Studio. Visitors can watch the Glass Blast team, led by artist Deborah Czeresko, create a large-scale holiday-themed glass object between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. on Friday. Visitors are invited to experience standard admission offerings which include entry to the Museum of American Glass, artist studios and shops while at WheatonArts for the Studio Sale.

“Visitors enjoy the Studio Sale because there is so much variety in the selection,” said Chief Operating Officer Cathy Nolan. “Many customers purchase artwork at the sale event because the pieces are truly unique. They make great holiday gifts and each purchase supports the WheatonArts organization at the same time. There really is something for everyone.”
