The Gandee Gallery and the Shaped Clay Society at Syracuse University are happy to announce the opening of The Almighty Cup, a national juried and invitational exhibition. The show presents an eclectic mix of styles of drinking vessels made by ceramic artists from all over the country. It will be on view at the Gandee Gallery in Fabius, October 8 through November 20. There will be a reception on Saturday, October 8, from 6:00-8:00 PM and it’s free and open to the public.

Local business, Clayscapes, is sponsoring the prizes for the exhibition. The Shaped Clay Society, a student-run club at Syracuse University, received the entry fees from the juried artists to support student activities and projects.
