Function: An exhibition of contemporary craft
The Gallery at Sulfur Studios invited artists working in traditional craft media (Ceramic, Fibers, Glass, Metals, Paper, and/or Wood) to submit work to their fall juried exhibition, “Function”. Artists are encouraged to push the boundaries of what “functional” means, and work that is conceptual or satirical will be considered along side more traditional craft forms.
Guest Juror for this exhibition will be Ceramicist Jessica Broad.
Work must weigh less than 75 pounds and fit through a standard size doorway. Shipping and insurance to and from the gallery will be the responsibility of the artist. Sulfur Studios will handle all sales and a 30% commission will be retained by the gallery.
