This juried exhibition is open nationally to all emerging and established ceramics artists who create functional small ware in a variety of artistic expressions.  All entries must be original and completed within the last two years.  Size may not exceed 12” x 12” x 12”

LITTLE LUSH provides an opportunity to feature your best pieces to influential collectors in a world class gallery in Palm Beach County, Florida, prior to the holiday season.  

Artists selected for this exhibition will be juried by a panel of nationally recognized ceramics artists.

The exhibition runs from September 7—December 2, 2023.  There  will be an Artists' Reception and Award Ceremony on Thursday, 21, 2023.





Commission on Sales:  Artist receives 60% and the Gallery receives 40%.  All commissions due are paid within 14 days of the closing of the exhibition.

Artists may submit up to three pieces per application.  If an artist wishes to submit more than three pieces for consideration another application must be completed.

If, for example, a set of four mugs is listed for one price, that constitutes ONE piece on the application.  If, however, each mug is individually priced then EACH mug would be considered one individual piece.
