||Each artist in the Chocolate Pot Exhibition has been invited to re-interpret this overlooked form from history. Chocolate was both food and currency in the time of the Aztecs. In Spain it was the Kings' Official Drink. In the late 1800s milk and sugar was added creating the now familiar hot chocolate drink we love to sip in the colder months. Early versions were in metal, but Limoge in France turned out porcelain versions, and so we present a December exhibition with traditional work from renowned makers who agreed to explore the delicious past.
December is time for the Annual Holiday Stroll in downtown Red Lodge. All the shops open their doors offering treats and good cheer to folks who revel in snow, carols and community. This is your chance to take home a one-of-a-kind service piece to keep you and your kin warm on a cold night.
Participating artists include: Forrest Lesch Middleton, A. Blair Clemo, Suze Lindsay, Emily Free Wilson, Margaret Bohls, Julia Galloway, Robin Dupont and Jane Shellenbarger. We expect it to be a diverse exhibit with wide appeal.
Reception December 7, 5-7 @ 123 S. Broadway, Red Lodge, MT
Exhibition Posted Online December 10 @ 10 AM Mountain Time
