Our Cups Runneth Over at The Society of Arts and Crafts
Our Cups Runneth Over
Reception: Friday November 16, 6pm - 8pm
Just in time for wintery warm drinks, Our Cups Runneth Over is a biannual exhibition and sale of contemporary ceramic cups featuring the work of 33 artists from around the country. The exhibition attracts the attention of regional and national collectors and has become an important educational destination for students to learn about the various formal, conceptual and technical approaches that ceramics allows. For the exhibition, Sanam Emami, Head of the Pottery Department at Colorado State University, Fort Collins has conceived a site-specific installation that further explores her interest in the patterns of Iranian and Islamic art and architecture. While in Boston, Emami will be offering a visual presentation at Harvard Ceramics on Tuesday, November 13th at 5:00pm.
More About Society of Arts and Crafts
The Society of Arts and Crafts is the country's oldest non-profit arts and crafts organization. Its work tends to focus on handmade items usually made of wood, glass or ceramics. There is a "retail" gallery on the first floor (items available for sale) and an exhibition gallery on the second floor.
There are four exhibitions scheduled throughout the year, although not all focused specifically on arts and crafts. The retail gallery hosts the work of more than 300 artists and includes scarves, earrings, ceramics, bowls, gift items and exhibition-related artwork. In-store discounts are given to those who join the Society as members. Additionally, the Society hosts an off-site Crafts Boston festival each December, featuring the work of many contemporary craft artists.
