Fif-TEA is the opening salvo in a year of events celebrating Craft Alliance Center of Art + Design Center of Art + Design’s 50th Anniversary.  For more than half of our 50 year history, Craft Alliance Center of Art + Design Center of Art + Design’s biennial teapot exhibitions have been a hallmark of our exhibition series, drawing overflow crowds of enthusiastic viewers, capturing the interest of collectors from across the nation and providing a platform for the teapot as an art form that is recognized in art schools, and galleries throughout the US. This year we have challenged participating artists to create a teacup as a companion to their teapot. We are delighted to continue Craft Alliance Center of Art + Design Center of Art + Design’s long tradition of inviting local and nationally known artists to take on the challenge of the iconic teapot as a functional or non-functional artistic form.  Fif-TEA will celebrate Craft Alliance Center of Art + Design Center of Art + Design’s dedication to craft and to highlighting its role in contemporary art.

sponsored in part by Sheila Greembaum and Gary Wasserman and The Republic of Tea
