Congratulations to those selected for FILL-adelphia Exhibition

The Potters Council announces it’s first juried exhibition of members’ to be held in conjunction with NCECA 2010 in Philadelphia, PA.

The name of the show is “FILL-adelphia”.

We challenged our members to create work exploring all the definitions of the word “FILL”. “FILL-adelphia” will be an exhibition of works exploring the idea of holding, enclosure or containment. Interpretations can be as functional as a beer mug, as symbolic as a mother’s arms, or as metaphorical as a box of rain. We hope to see the diversity, skill and commitment of our members expressed through this broad and inclusive theme.

Sherman Hall will be the juror. He is the editor of Ceramics Monthly magazine, as well as a practicing ceramic artist. His vast experience gives him a uniquely qualified perspective on contemporary and historical ceramics.

A Show of Hands Gallery
