Drink This! International Ceramic Cup Show at the Workhouse Arts Center

Jan 9, 2014 - Jan 10, 2014
11:00 am - 6:00 pm

Location
Workhouse Arts Center
9601 Ox Road
Lorton, VA

“Drink This!” is on exhibit January 8 through February 2, 2014 in Building 8 at Workhouse Arts Center, 9601 Ox Road, Lorton, Virginia. Hours are from 11am – 5pm on Mondays and Tuesdays, 11am to 6pm Wednesdays through Saturdays, and 12-5pm on Sundays.

From the elegant, ceremonial tumbler to the comfortable simple mug, an exhibition of 71 works from five countries offers a surprising sample of the many ways contemporary artists interpret the cup in “Drink This!” Workhouse International Ceramic Cup Show.

Juried by internationally recognized ceramic artist and professor Sam Chung, the show presents lively and unusual approaches to the ceramic drinking vessel. The 71 works represented here were selected from hundreds of entries from ten countries. “There were cups that told a story that transcended the object itself,” Chung said, “while others created an innate craving for a drink that fit the cup’s character. These were the cups that pushed me over the edge.”

Public Opening Reception: Saturday, January 11, 6pm

Admission is free. For more information, call (703)584-2982 or www.workhouseceramics.org.
