The Ninth Annual Cup Show: Form and Function
The Visual & Performing Arts Division of Gulf Coast State College presents The Ninth Annual Cup Show: Form and Function, a juried exhibition that explores the idea of the drinking vessel. The central theme of the show is the function and concept of the drinking vessel – including its relation to history, politics, craft, technology, utility, and narrative. It is a survey of the wide variety of approaches to contemporary ceramics through the lens of the most intimate and accessible vessel – the cup.
This year we are raising the stakes by partnering with our Theatre Department to present “Form & Function” as an improvisational cup show. During the opening reception, on October 7, the audience will be treated to improvisational interpretations of select cups from the exhibition. Do you think you know what a proud cup acts like? How about a fussy cup? What do the cups in your own cupboard personify? What is your favorite personality to drink from?
The exhibit will run from October 3 to October 21, with an opening reception on the evening of October 7, 5:00 – 7:00 p.m. The work will be on display in the Amelia Center Main Gallery (Room 112). Gallery hours are Monday – Thursday, 10:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m., and Friday 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. Admission is free.
