Call for artists:
GrowlerFest connects artists to the craft beer movement by showcasing the ties between local food, craft beer, and ceramics. It’s goal is to create a “cross current” link between the craft brewery movement and the vitality of handmade pottery. Through the intersection of collaboration and individual aesthetic, GrowlerFest hopes to spark investment in handmade objects among a group of people who share a common interest. The enjoyment of food and drink can be greatly enriched by the experience of using the beautiful work artists so thoughtfully produce.
The exhibition will be comprised of two components, one being juried growlers from artists who answer the open call for entry, and another being growlers made by an invited list of artists. The multi-faceted exhibition fosters a particular aesthetic while sparking interest in the growler as a form. Events will feature beer tastings and local food sampling and will be free and open to the public during the National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts (NCECA) Conference in Pittsburgh, PA March 13-17, 2018. The public is invited to an exhibition and social gatherings centering on the beer growler.
Deadline to apply is January 22, 2018.
