Columbus, OH - Ohio Dominican University (ODU) will host the 8th Annual Holiday Art Market in the Wehrle Gallery located in Wehrle Hall on ODU’s main campus, 1216 Sunbury Road, beginning Monday, Nov. 30 through Friday, Dec. 4 from 10:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.

This annual event features a variety of items handcrafted by Ohio Dominican students, faculty members and local artists. Items for sale include jewelry, pottery, prints, paintings, paper crafts and many other items that are perfect for holiday gifts.

The current Wehrle Gallery exhibition, “Dreamers of the Day: Images from Ohio Dominican University Study Abroad in Egypt,” will continue through December 6. Admission is free and is open Monday through Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

This exhibition was inspired by an ODU study abroad trip to Egypt last May which included a guided tour through most of the ancient Egyptian wonders and a chance to experience the growing modern country. ODU Professor and Wehrle Art Gallery Director, Dr. Janette Knowles organized the trip with assistance from ODU Professor Jeremy Glazier and Professor Jessica Larva. Together they helped the students learn about the art form of the ancient Egyptians tomb and temple constructions.
