Functional Fall: A Seat At The Table


This National Call For Entry Exhibition is guest juried by Jessica Putnam-Phillips, and brings everyone to the table through ceramics that serve, featuring work from artists at all stages of their careers throughout the US.  

“This exhibition of functional ceramics focuses on the concept of “service” in tableware. Encompassing a wide range of ceramic styles from evocative shapes made to serve functionally, to conceptual and narrative work that explores the ideas of serving beyond the traditional role as a vessel for a meal, these objects set the table for a dialog between maker and viewer. This exhibition aims to present ceramics that bring people together for discourse and sustenance for the mind, body, and soul.” Jessica Putnam-Phillips

Vick Quezada (they/them) is an interdisciplinary artist, who explores hybrid forms in Indigenous-Latinx history and the function of these histories in contested lands, primarily in the U.S.-Mexico Border. “Remains To Be Seen” is comprised of ten pieces presented at Clay Art Center as a concurrent exhibition in our gallery highlighting Hispanic Heritage Month.
