GrowlerFest 2015 East + West – Upcoming events



GrowlerFest 2015 East + West is a project that will showcase the ties between the local food movement, craft beer, and ceramic art.

Project Art (Cummington, MA) is partnering with artist Bradley Klem
(Phoenix, AZ),The Eutectic Gallery (Portland, OR) and Portland Growler
Company (Portland, OR) to bring GrowlerFest 2015 East + West to the East
and West Coasts for the first time.

Project coordinators Alexandra Jelleberg and Bradley Klem’s aim is to
create a narrative about the link between the craft brewery movement
and the vitality of handmade pottery:

Through the intersection of collaboration and individual
aesthetic, we hope to spark investment in handmade objects among a group
of people who share a common interest. The enjoyment of food and drink
can be greatly enriched by the experience of using the beautiful work
artists so thoughtfully produce.

GrowlerFest 2015 East + West intends to connect artists working in
disparate ways and faraway places to both each other and the craft beer
movement by offering the surface of a growler as a way to collaborate
with one another, and an exhibition with functional and decorative
components to draw parallels and comparisons in form, style, design
and philosophy between local and global ceramic artists.

15 ceramic artists have collaborated on limited editions of ceramic
growlers that will be on exhibit at Project Art October 3–December 2.
Also on display will be vessels by local studio potters. Participating
potters include Ben Eberle, Robbie Heidinger, Tiffany Hilton, Jeffrey
Lipton, Maya Machin, Michael McCarthy, Robbie Heidinger, Steve Theberge,
Elenor Wilson. By appointment, contact Project Art at 701.471.9782 or click here to inquire.
Join us for a celebration with craft beer tastings, local food, and
ceramic art on Saturday, October 10, 5–7. Early bird tickets are $15,
$20 at the door.
Sunday, October 11, 10–12, join us for a potluck brunch
and slideshow presentation by artist Bradley Klem.
