Gulf Coast State College Amelia Center Gallery is hosting a juried exhibition that explores the idea of the drinking vessel.

The
exhibition will focus on the function and concept of the drinking
vessel; including its relation to history, politics, craft, technology,
utility, and narrative. The goal is to offer a survey of the wide array
of approaches to contemporary ceramics through the lens of the most
intimate and accessible vessel, the cup.
