Cups and bowls carry many meanings, but fundamentally they represent the sharing of food and drink and the gathering of community. What better way could there be to celebrate the end of one year and the start of another than with an exhibition of these vessels.

And with the “Cup and Bowl Show,” Ah Haa aims to involve anyone and everyone from the Telluride region. To that end Ah Haa put out an open call to artists of all skill levels to submit their work for inclusion in the show. Everyone and anyone who submits will be featured.

“We wanted to provide a space for all of our artists, of all ages and skill levels to showcase their creations,” says Gallery Curator Kris Kwasniewski, “even though Covid has limited our ability to share food communally, we can still welcome everyone to share their creativity.”

To get the ball rolling, Ah Haa reached out to 12 local artists to participate in the “Cup and Bowl.” Works submitted by these artists provide the foundation of the exhibition, which also showcase vessels by artists of all ages, in all stages of their creative careers.

“We are so delighted with the wide array of pieces that have been submitted by members of the community at large,” says Kwasniewski.

In conjunction with “Cup and Bowl,” Ah Haa is also partnering with Telluride’s Wilkinson Public Library to offer free classes for youth, teens and adults.

“If we are going to invite everyone in the community to include their work in the show, we also felt the need to provide free access to different mediums and tools” explains Kwasniewski.

Ah Haa is committed to nurturing emerging talent and encouraging everyone to try something new. Free classes will take place both before and after the exhibition opens. Visit www.ahhaa.org for class details and to sign up for a free ceramics class. Also, keep an eye on the Wilkinson Public Library events and activities offerings for even more free Cup and Bowl Show opportunities.

Ubiquitous kitchenware, vessels of metaphor, tools of social communion: cups and bowls hold meaning for many aspects of our daily lives. Showcasing creative containers shaped by artists of all ages, the “Cup and Bowl Show” and all its surrounding programming, invites everyone raise a cup, fill a bowl, and celebrate the simple pleasures of life.
