Venue: 8600 University BlVD, Evensville, IN 47712
New Harmony Gallery of Contemporary Art at University of Southern Indiana, in partnership with New Harmony Clay Project, is proud to present Filled Up 4: A Ceramic Cup Show. Filled Up 4 features ceramic cups by contributing artists around the United States, juried by noted ceramic artist Pattie Chalmers. Filled Up 4 opens at 3:00 p.m. on Saturday, November 11 with a juror’s talk and award announcements, followed by a public reception from 4:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. CT. An additional public reception for Filled Up 4 will be held December 2 in conjunction with Christmas in New Harmony, from 4:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. CT, where visitors can remove purchased works from the gallery. Gallery hours are 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. CT, Tuesday – Saturday.
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. Partnering with New Harmony Clay Project, we received over 80 submissions, 57 of which were accepted by the juror. Two awards will be given. Best in show will be given the “Overflowing” award of $150. Five honorable mentions will receive the “To the Brim” award of $50 each. Whether you choose to fill your cups with beverages, food, pencils, or ideology, this exhibition will feature a multitude of handmade creations from artists across the country.
