That you to everyone who participated in, and came out to support our exhibition, DRINK! We had a great crowd at the opening reception and we were honored to have our juror, Doug Peltzman, there to present the award winners. Peltzman briefly talked about his selections for the entire exhibition and the quality of the entries, then he moved onto the three award winners.
Peltzman said that when he saw the Monkey Cup, he was surprised, When he looked into it, he was surprised, and when he saw the back side, he was again surprised. For these reasons, he awarded Smith’s cup the first prize (and then purchased it for himself!).
All of the cups in the show are for sale, and many are still available. Please contact the gallery for purchase information, or if you’re in the area, stop by the gallery Monday through Friday, 9 a.m.-4 p.m. and weekends 12-4 p.m.
