Mendocino Art Center and ceramic artist, CHRISTA ASSAD, invite you to submit images for a national juried exhibition entitled, “To Go,” a statement on today’s fast-paced, particularly American on-the-go style of dining, working, multi-tasking, etc.

Open to interpretation, the theme, “To Go,” hopes to inspire both vessel and sculpture creation, from the obvious flasks, thermoses, car cups, lunch boxes, things with lids, wheels… to the more outrageous or unpredictable. The possibilities are endless – surprise us!
