'Back to the Table'

Curated by Nancy Bruno and Puneeta Mittal

In our multimedia fast food society, meals are often eaten on the run, on the couch, in front of a computer or television. Considering the current state of the dinner table this exhibition welcomes us to reclaim this important ritual with our friends and family while reminding us all that dinner tables are not only a place to collect mail and are meant to be utilized as a place for human connection. Tables tops are a space where families and friends congregate around, the future of a country or a cause is feverishly discussed and decided, dreams are fulfilled and at times promises broken.

From heart to hand to hearth, ceramic artists are asked to reflect to reestablish the connections and discussions to the table to express the inter-connectivity of society. Make a statement – personal or universal – express joy, pleasure, beauty, hunger, pain, prejudice, war, peace, humor, anger, envy, lust, love, history, whimsy… Create a one of a kind abstract interpretation or place setting, monumental centerpieces or a simple flower vase, which will be part of a curated communal table.
