Ware/ Wear: Drinking Vessel + Earring Show Opening Reception

From Pocosin Arts School of Fine Craft

Join Pocosin Arts for the opening of the third annual Drinking Vessel & Earring Show- Ware/ Wear- on Friday, February 28, 2020.

Functional objects differ from decorative objects through user interaction. With the intent that the object is handled and used, certain aspects of its formal creation are called to attention. Comfort, familiarity, and usability all introduce essential considerations for the functional object. Ware/Wear seeks to gather and celebrate these concerns in the form of cups and earrings, both long-standing objects in human history.

This exhibition showcases handcrafted mugs, cups and earrings from nationwide artists. All exhibited works were selected through a competitive process with artists Mark Arnold, Zachery Lechtenberg and TaeHyun Bang serving as jurors. Exhibited cups and earrings will be for sale in Pocosin Arts’ gallery beginning February 28th. Opening reception attendees will have the privilege of first-choice for cup and earring purchases.

Exhibiting artists include; Emily Blodgett-Panos, Lakyn Bowman, Dan Dicaprio, Michael Bridges, Ben Cooke-Akaiwa, Marion DiCaprio, Chase Gamblin, Vershali Jain, Laura Konecne, Sarah Loch-Test, Beth Lonsinger, Nathalie Maiello,  Aaron Moseley, Robert Mullen, Stephen Mullins, Audrey Peck, Tyler Quintin, Jenne Rayburn, Andrea Ring, Emily Rogstad, Alejandra Salinas, Liz Steiner, Vivienne Varay, Nick Grant Barnes and Eric Heersprink. Opening Reception Details:
