Artifact Open For Business



On Nov. 10, the student-run art gallery, Artifact, opened for business. The store sells student made art. The products for sale include paintings, jewelry, photography, decals and more.

Students began working earlier this year on items that would be for sell in the store. Art professor Kaitlin Botts oversees the store, but students are in charge of the day-to-day operation. They’re responsible for the marketing and selling aspects of the store.

“Art makes you happier. Art makes you more excited to be a human being. Art is what it is about to be alive,” said Botts. “That’s really what I want Artifact to be able to offer to the community.”

“I believe artifact will succeed with providing the college and the community with a variety of creative projects from students. It’s a great opportunity for art majors to practice selling their work,” said sophomore studio art major, Rebekah Kanipe.

“I hope to bring in a variety of mediums on different types of canvases. I’m currently planning to submit home-comfort like drawings/designs, as well as glass bottle designs for outdoor decorations.”

Artifact is located on the corner of Central Avenue and Georgia Street. Artifact is open Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from noon until 3 p.m. Only checks, credit or debit cards will be accepted as form of payment.
