JUGS features the work of five artists who have interpreted the jug form, particularly what's known as the ugly jug or face jug. Curated by artist Nicholas Nyland, the works in the exhibitioin share a common sense of playful dialog with historical art and craft traditions including Northern Renaissance allegorical painting, outsider and folk art, contemporary Funk art and underground comix. Like those predecessors, these artists and ceramics dive headfirst into the base materiality and emotive possibilities of their medium and don't shy from the personal, the sexual or the absurd.
