LOCK HAVEN — Lock Haven University’s 18th annual student pottery sale is Thursday from noon to 7 p.m. and Friday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

“Students want opportunities to support causes they believe in. Partnering with HELP 4 Pets connects the students with a well respected and managed local non-profit. In addition, most of the students have never experienced marketing or selling their own creations. Working beside well-established ceramic artisans gives the students invaluable insights and experiences. And I’m so pleased last year’s guests are attending this year,” Professor Vance McCoy said.

The two returning artisans are nationally recognized Selinda Kennedy and award-winning Bonny Slopey Mardis. The sale is held in LHU’s Art Annex studio building located at 515 Railroad St. between the Student Recreation Center and the Willis Health Professions Building in Lock Haven.

All pottery sale proceeds will include a 10% donation to the local non-profit HELP 4 Pets organization. HELP provides no-interest loans to Clinton County pet owners who need financial assistance in cases of emergency pet care. HELP also supports the Chessie spay and neuter program.

HELP President Pam Blesh will attend the sale and offer additional information to the public. During the pottery sale free parking is available adjacent to LHU’s Art Annex building (former KCSD horticultural building) off Railroad Street. For more information contact L.H.U.’s Art Professor Vance McCoy at vmccoy@lockhaven.edu.
