14th Annual National Juried Cup Show Opens at Kent State School of Art Downtown Gallery

Posted Mar. 10, 2014

The Kent State University School of Art presents the 14th Annual National Juried Cup Show, on display from March 13 to April 5 at the School of Art’s Downtown Gallery (141 E. Main St. in Kent). This year’s juror is Jake Allee, assistant professor of art at Colorado Mesa University, who has selected 40 cups from more than 24 states.

There will be an opening reception on Thursday, March 13, from 5 to 7 p.m. Both the gallery and the reception are free and open to the public.

The internationally recognized ceramics program at the Kent State University School of Art was one of the original sponsors for the National Juried Cup Show. The ceramics program continues to play an integral role in organizing the cup show and maintaining its integrity. Allee has donated several cups that will be sold to support the Kirk S. Mangus Graduate Student Fellowship in Ceramics, a scholarship fund created in memory of the late Kent State Professor Kirk Mangus. Mangus oversaw the ceramics program at Kent State until his death in late 2013.

This 14th Annual National Juried Cup Show is sponsored in part by the Ohio Arts Council.
