Calla Wine Stems (2016 Judges Choice Award) by Marion Angelica

Ceramic artists are invited to submit their work for consideration for the 5th Annual Cup Show at the Jansen Art Center!

In 2016, the jury accepted submissions from over 30 artists, totaling over 75 cups. Submissions came in from 7 counties in Washington, including over 10 artists in Bellingham, and included out of state submissions for the first time from Vancouver, Minnesota, Oregon, Kansas, Montana and Illinois. 

There are three awards given for this exhibit: Judges Choice & 2nd Place, and the People’s Choice Award. Votes for the People’s Choice Award are taken during the opening reception. There will be over $450 in cash and prizes awarded. 

Artists can submit up to three submissions. Each artist can choose to have their work available for purchase during the exhibit, or on display online. The Jansen Art Center operates with a 40% commission based on the retail price set by the artist ($50 Retail price = $30 to the artist, $20 to the J).

You will be asked to provide an Artist Statement, digital image for each submission, title and dimensions of each piece, and the retail price (if offering for sale) when you complete the Submission Form.
