Join us next Saturday, April 12th for a new exhibit: CONSIDERING THE KYLIX
Opening reception 5-7pm with a Curator's Talk at 5:30pm
https://www.facebook.com/events/728964210481009/?ref=5&source=3...


An invitational exhibition curated by Maleyne Syracuse. Contemporary craft artists reinterpret this form in their own style and materials.

The kylix, the original ceremonial wine cup, first appeared as early as 900 BCE in ancient Greece. The word “chalice,” the term used for the sacred ceremonial wine cup in Christian ecclesiastical services, is derived, via the Latin “calix,” from the Greek “kylix.”

The kylix has appeared from time to time over the centuries, as artisans have recreated or reinterpreted the form using materials, processes, and aesthetics suited to their time.

We invite the public to come and learn more about the fascinating history of this iconic object and see the varied interpretations that have resulted from this challenge.

This exhibition will be on view during our Annual Studio Open House & Bevans Day Event.
