Bowls

Call for Submissions

Bowls: common, open-top containers, dishes or basins, often round and rather deep, used in many cultures chiefly for holding liquids and food.

One of the simplest, most ancient, and most elemental forms, bowls have been created and recreated by artists and artisans through the ages as objects variously or simultaneously functional, sculptural, decorative, utilitarian, and more.

This exhibit will explore what continues to be new and vital about this form, and submitted work is encouraged to explore its many aspects.
