In celebration of American Craft Week (October 2 – 11), Grovewood Gallery in Asheville will present Vessels of Merriment, an exhibition of handcrafted drinking vessels by 25 artists from around the country. This invitational art exhibit will feature more than 200 drinking vessels in a variety of mediums. Exhibiting artists will showcase works ranging from ceramic beer steins, tumblers, and tankards, to porcelain sake sets and decorative moonshine jugs.
The exhibition will be celebrated with an opening reception on Saturday, October 3 from 3 – 6pm (free and open to the public). Several participating artists will be in attendance and special guests from Metro Wines and Noble Cider (both sponsors of this event) will be on hand offering tastings of their products.
