Nine ceramic artists will collaborate with their choice of hand-rolled chocolate truffle from local Chicago confectionery cake. Each artist created artwork to coincide with their own truffle inspired by the always amazing tastes, textures and emotions we experience when indulging in chocolate. Please join us for this unique opportunity in which you the viewer will be able to also enjoy these culinary delights while feasting your eyes upon something seen before.

Ticket includes the nine selected hand-rolled chocolates to taste while viewing the exhibit. Also enjoy complementary single-malt scotch from Auchentoshan, a variety of wines, catered hors d’oeuvres and conversations with some of the artists. Additional truffles and artwork will be available for purchase in our boutique.

Collective Conversations in Clay, established by Gina Hutchings of Lunar Media Events, encourages ceramic artists to collaborate with their surroundings and create something they never would have made without these influences. It also allows the combination of emerging artists from very different levels in their careers, muddling them together and bridging a gap in the art community.
