(a ceramic cup show)

The cup, one of ceramics’ more iconic images, has been used as a metaphor, a sculptural element, a sculptural foundation and a functional daily piece of dinnerware. The New Harmony Clay Project in cooperation with the New Harmony Gallery of Contemporary Art (NHGCA), a University of Southern Indiana division of outreach and engagement, is now accepting entries for its first annual juried cup show set to be exhibited in historic New Harmony, IN, at the NHGCA, December 5, 2020-January 22, 2021. Whether you choose to fill your cups with beverages, food, pencils, or ideology, this exhibition will feature over 100 handmade creations from artists across the country. This exhibition is made possible in part by the Arts Council of Southwestern Indiana, Lenny and Anne Dowhie Trusts, and the Indiana Arts Commission, which receives support from the State of Indiana and the National Endowment for the Arts.
