From their call: This exhibition will coincide with seasonal gatherings around tables, offering an exploration of sculptural and functional tableware as contemporary carriers of narrative and story – central elements in human gatherings. We seek a wide variety of content, and a broad representation of style. Submissions may include objects of ceramic, wood, glass, or metals; paintings, prints, or photographs; mixed media, installation artworks, and digital works. Utensils and flatware, table linens, and tables and chairs themselves will be considered, as will wall-hung works that relate to the exhibition subject.
