“The mere chink of cups and saucers tunes the mind to happy repose,” wrote English novelist George Robert Gissing. The sentiment could not be more true at Crimson Laurel Gallery’s upcoming show Interpreting the Cup: Process, Influence and Intent
Curated by Jason Bige Burnett, the exhibit features more than 375 cups from 80 ceramic artists. The vessels run the gamut from traditional to experimental. From Day of the Dead skeletons to a bespeckled scientist holding a beaker, there’s something for both utilitarian and art collectors alike.
The exhibition will open on Nov. 5 and remain through Dec. 31. An artist reception will be held on Saturday, Nov. 5 at 6 p.m. at 23 Crimson Laurel Way in Bakersville. Works are available for purchase online as well, starting at midnight on Nov. 4.
