We are excited to share our Medalta International Exhibition, “Cheers @ Medalta,” with you! This year, as we launched the call for submissions on St. Patrick’s Day at NCECA’s (National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts) 50th anniversary celebration, we felt there was no better theme than celebratory drinking vessels!
It has been great to see so many varied submissions from around the world in ode to celebratory drinking vessels. In the end we had over 430 works submitted which our juror, Robin DuPont, had the difficult task of narrowing down into 140 pieces for the exhibition. Along with jurying the exhibition, Robin will be selecting the grand prize winner of a month long residency at Medalta with accommodation!
If you can’t make it to the reception join Medalta on Instagram, where we will be posting live from the opening and announcing the grand prize and purchase prize winners.
The International Exhibition is one of our biggest and most anticipated exhibitions of the year, and this year will be no exception. The celebratory drinking vessels we have received from all over the world are a must see, and the best part is… if you see something you like, it’s yours to purchase!
