CRAFTED 2016 – Opening Reception
November 4, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Dining is a daily part of life, but it’s often treated as a routine of physical necessity rather than a mindful experience. In our increasingly fast-paced, takeout food-centric world, Contemporary Craft invites diners to slow down and reexamine the ritual of eating through a special celebration of handcrafted tableware.
CRAFTED is an annual Contemporary Craft Store showcase and sale featuring a wide variety of ceramic tableware in an effort to encourage people to reflect on the relationship between the food we consume and the objects that hold it. This year’s event and sale will include over 100 pieces of work by 30 hand-selected ceramic artists from around the world.
On Friday, November 4, 2016 from 6 – 8pm, we will celebrate the opening of the showcase with a CRAFTED reception that is free and open to the public. Guests are invited to enjoy a relaxing evening in the gallery and store while browsing the featured work. All of the CRAFTED tableware, including cups, mugs, bowls, platters, and more, will be available for sale. Coinciding with the holiday shopping season, CRAFTED is the perfect opportunity to pick up a unique holiday entertaining dish or memorable gift.
Guests interested in getting first dibs on this year’s collection are invited to purchase a ticket to the VIP Preview taking place from 5:30 – 6pm. This early entrance event includes the opportunity to purchase from the collection before it opens to the general public. Light refreshments will be served. Tickets are $30 and can be purchased online or by calling 412-261-7003.
The CRAFTED showcase will be available in the Contemporary Craft Store while supplies last or through December 30, 2016.
