A Place at the Table
March 1-26, 2022
ACCI Gallery presents A Place at the Table: featuring individual table settings by regional ceramic artists, organized by ACCI Ceramic Artists, Kathy Kearns and Vince Montague and juried by Bay Area Artist and Writer, Maria Porges. This exhibition explores the concept of “place” and the artists’ visual connection between food and ceramics.
A Place at the Table is a juried exhibition of place settings that will run concurrently with the March 2022 NCECA conference in Sacramento.
"In selecting the work for this show, I considered both the idea of ‘place’ as described in the call for submissions and the idea of a place setting: a grouping of handmade pieces that create a sense of harmony and beauty, even as they serve their purpose. Some works here are more fanciful than they are utilitarian, but that’s OK too-- we have to have room at the table for dreamers! Finally, I love the idea of local agriculture served on beautiful local pottery, and can easily envision that taking place on some of these dishes."
- Maria Porges
Handmade ceramics connect and support local movements that represent sustainable agriculture, urban gardening and social justice for food. It is our hope with this exhibition to underline the value of a community that supports health and art for all people.
ACCI Gallery is presenting three cash awards of $300, $200 and $100 to the best place settings in the exhibition.
