Pecos Valley Potters Guild is holding its 29th annual Arts Sale thru Sunday at the Roswell Convention and Civic Center, 912 N. Main St.
The sale, whose theme this year is A Fall Festival, features handmade ceramic ornaments by more than 50 artists, according to Sarah Kelly, program coordinator.
â€œWe have a really great group of artists this year. Some are local, and we also have artists from all around New Mexico and Texas,â€ she said.
A silent auction begun Friday will continue through 5 p.m., today.
â€œAll of the work has been donated by our artists. The proceeds go toward getting a new kiln at the Roswell Museum and Arts Center and supporting clay-art education. We have a great variety of work in the silent auction,â€ Kelly said.
The Art Saleâ€™s hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. today, and 11 a.m to 4 p.m., Sunday.
