CAMPBELLSVILLE, Ky. – There will be an open house at Campbellsville University’s Art Shop, located in a small cabin at 503 N. Columbia Ave., Campbellsville, Saturday, Nov. 10 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Everyone is invited.

The art shop features work by CU faculty, staff, alumni and students. Various artists who have artwork on display will be available to greet and talk with guests, as well as discuss their work.

Carolyn Ogden, president of the Campbellsville University Patrons of the Visual Arts, said, “One of the goals of the Campbellsville University Art Shop is to promote art in the community and introduce artists to the public, and the open house and Christmas Home Tour are great ways to do just that.”

Ogden said many unique items will be on display that will make wonderful gifts.

The Campbellsville University Art Shop will also be on the Campbellsville Women’s Club’s annual Christmas Home tour on Sunday, Dec. 2 from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.

Each year private homes, and sometimes businesses, are decorated for the holidays and tours are open to the public with proceeds going to the Campbellsville Women’s Club.

The shop is open from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday with volunteer artists, whose work is on display and those who are members of the Patrons of the Visual Arts, in charge of the shop.

The shop is sponsored by the Campbellsville University Patrons of the Visual Arts. Portions of every sale in the art shop goes to Campbellsville University as well as the artist. The art shop is located in the Turner Log Cabin Park.
