DEADLINE TOMORROW!!!! – Gulf Coast State College Amelia Center Gallery Cup Show

Thirteenth 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 Cinelli Mike Cinelli is a ceramic artist, father and occasional husband residing in Taylor, Mississippi. His
work has been displayed nationally and internationally in numerous juried and invitational exhibitions, with work
displayed as far away as Skopelos, Greece, where he attended a one month residency at the Skopelos Foundation for
the Arts. He has received various jury awards, including the Studio Potter Merit Award. He was featured in the
August 2016 issue of Ceramics Monthly as a contributor to “From Idea to Finished Form”. Currently, he is
attempting to juggle his studio practice, being a father and husband, and maintaining a rigorous schedule of
complaining on the internet.

$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.

(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.
