LAST CALL IV: Handmade Ceramics for Storing, Pouring & Sipping Fine Libations
2019 Juror: Carole Epp
Now in its fourth year, LAST CALL has become one of the most anticipated juried ceramics exhibitions by makers and collectors alike.
LAST CALL is an annual survey of contemporary ceramics, whose intended function is geared towards storing, pouring, and drinking alcohol. The exhibition is open to every type of clay, temperature, and atmosphere. We will be looking for the very finest growlers, bottles, flasks, flights, steins, pilsners, mugs, goblets, rocks cups, liquor sets, sake sets, ice buckets, shots, etc!
Companion Gallery will be printing a full color catalog, hosting an opening gallery reception, and the entire exhibition will be available for sale online.
The exhibition opening will be held at Companion Gallery’s new location on Friday March 1st, 2019.
Companion Gallery 3600 East Mitchell Street, Humboldt, TN, as well as ONLINE at companiongallery.com.
A FULL COLOR 8.5 x 11 print catalog will accompany the exhibition. Participating artists will each receive a complimentary print copy.
Entry Deadline: Friday January 18th, 2018 12 Midnight CST
- Open to US and CANADIAN residents 21 and up.

- Images must be print ready, well lit, in focus, 300 DPI cropped into a square sized to 1000 x 1000. Because we are printing a catalog, photography will be a determining factor during the jurying process. Please do not embed images in the body of the email. Sent them as attachments to the email.
