Radius, HACC Gallery and Museum Shop is accepting entries from Pennsylvania craftsmen for the next showcase series: Bottles, which runs Sept. 1-Oct. 31.

The bottle has greatly evolved from a container for liquids. Artists now are creating this common form in extraordinary ways – in glass, wood, ceramic and even textiles. While some continue to craft functional bottles, many craftsmen are re-interpreting the form to be strictly sculptural. State craftsmen can enter their best work for the Radius showcase.

The deadline to submit digital entries is Monday, Aug. 18. Artists are limited to four entries, submitted either by e-mail or on a disk and sent in postal mail. There is no fee to enter; all work chosen for the showcase must be available for sale on consignment.

Artists whose work is chosen are responsible for delivery and return of their work.

Direct all e-mail entries to Jessica Lantz, curator of arts and assistant manager, at jllantz@hacc.edu. Disks should be addressed to Lantz at 300 N. Third St., Harrisburg, PA 17120.

The showcases are displayed at Radius, on the ground floor of the State Museum of Pennsylvania, Third and North streets in Harrisburg.

Radius is a partnership of HACC, Central Pennsylvania’s Community College, and the Pennsylvania Historical Museum Commission.
