SANFORD–The Central Carolina Community College (CCCC) Lee campus library will double as a miniature art gallery for the next month.

Works created by degree students in the CCCC professional arts and crafts program, which is based in Siler City, are exhibited throughout the library.

The artwork of program graduate Randi Jean Veiberg and current students Emily MacFadyen and Carlyne Thomas will be on display until early July.

Lead pottery instructor Dan Rhode said each student has her own artistic area of interest. He said Veiberg works with functional pottery and higher-end sculpture, MacFadyen specializes in salt-fire functional pottery and, while Thomas initially fell in love with clay, she now dabbles in welding and metal sculpture as well.

“ She’s really getting into the sculpture side of things,” Rhode said of Thomas, “and is really excited about the metal.”

The library and exhibit are open to the public. Artists can be contacted about an item’s sale price and availability. Artist contact information is available at the library.
