Function or Form: Utilitarian Art / an exhibit

  • the Erpf Gallery 43355 New York 28 Arkville, NY, 12406 United States (map)

The 2nd annual exhibit, Function or Form: Utilitarian Art, will be on display in the Erpf Gallery November 18, 2017 through January 6, 2018. It will feature beautiful functional items by 14 local artists.

An Artist’s Reception will be held on Friday, November 17, from 6-8 PM, at the Erpf Center in Arkville.

Many of the products we use every day are not only useful, but beautiful. Homemade furniture, clothing, pottery, quilts… so many items we depend on for everyday use could be on display for their beauty.

In 2016 the Catskill Center’s Erpf Gallery hosted the first Utilitarian show to celebrate local people that create art with both function and beautiful form.  

The 2016 show was such a success – with a dozen sales and hundreds of visitors - that the Utilitarian Art show has become an annual event. This year’s show will feature some returning artists and several new artists.
