The Vessels call for entries challenged artists to consider the functions and possibilities of a vessel, both visually and conceptually. The submissions were not limited by medium, but open to a wide interpretation of what a vessel can be. A Hollow Container? A Ship or Boat? A Duct or Canal?
The exploration by this group of artists has resulted in a diverse selection of work in a variety of media. As you survey the selected works, consider how their interpretation of the theme enhances and expands your idea of what a simple vessel can be.
