call for entries: Fifteenth Annual Cup Show: “Form and Function”

Gulf Coast State College Amelia Center Gallery is hosting its annual juried exhibition that explores the idea of the drinking vessel. The focus of the exhibit is on the function and concept of the drinking vessel, including its relation to history, politics, craft, technology, utility, and narrative. It is a survey of the wide variety of approaches to contemporary ceramics through the lens of the most intimate and accessible vessel the cup.

Mike Stumbras makes ceramic vessels that are inspired by 18th and 19th century European production ware. His work is created primarily on the potter’s wheel with the immediacy and individuality attributed to hand processes and alternative firing methods. Mike was born in Chicago, IL. He studied at St. Olaf College (BFA 2007), and Louisiana State University (MFA 2017). He has completed numerous residencies across the country, and is currently Assistant Professor at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville.

$100 Best of Show prize will be awarded by the juror.

The exhibition is open to both functional and sculptural work that addresses the idea of “the cup”. Please submit only original work that has been completed in the last three (3) years. Amelia Center Gallery reserves the right to reject any work that is not suitably prepared for exhibition or that differs from the original submission.
