Exhibition—'Vessels: Form and Function'
Vessels: Form and Function
For millennia, vessels have been vitally connected to the presence of human beings. Ranging from their use as utilitarian tools to hold liquids of importance, to their ability to hold and transport goods across open bodies of water, these receptacles have been a continuous support to our survival and sustenance. The term vessel also references more sacred aspects of our existence, including the nature of the body as a vessel for fertility, the production and sustainment of life, as well as our belief that objects themselves can transform and take on power when incorporated as part of a ritual process and become a holy vessel.
This exhibition explores the form and function of what a vessel can be and how it has been represented artistically over time. Various works ranging in shape, size, media, and meaning have been selected from the UTA’s Fine Art Collections to better illustrate these observations and to provide a visual connection to several of their definitions.
Please join us in viewing and celebrating these works through Friday, Dec. 6, 2019. Open Monday-Friday, 8:30am - 5:00pm.
Opening reception noon-2 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 2, in the Visual Resource Commons & Gallery, FA2109,Fine Arts Building.
