"The instructors here have a way of getting the amazing to come out of us," says glass artist-student, Christopher Gray.
"The instructors are reputable artist and the facilities here are just remarkable," Lambert adds. "Anoka-Ramsey is known for its great art program, and no other Minnesota college offers glassblowing."
The result of great instructors and facilities as well as unique programs is outstanding art and student-artists, who grant meaning to the often-used phrase, Starving Artist Sale.
"I've been supporting myself since I moved to Minnesota from Iowa," Gray says, having traveled to ARCC for the unique glassblowing program. "I know almost all of the other art students are working either full- or part-time just to get a chance to bring their art into the world."
Gray, as well as most of the student-artists, will be available during the sale to discuss their vision or intention for their work. "I just hope the community comes out to take a look at what the kids [college students] are passionate about."
