The newest exhibit at the Davis Art Center, “Stretching Function,” will showcase 11 clay artists who illustrate how functional ceramic forms can be interpreted, manipulated and metaphorically or literally extended, or “stretched.”

The public is invited to view the exhibit and meet the artists from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday during the Second Friday ArtAbout. The Art Center is at 1919 F St.

“Stretching Function” will run through Nov. 17, and features the work of Rebecca Bresnick Holmes, Linda S. Fitz Gibbon, Marc Lancet, Donna Lemongello, Jennifer Nachmanoff, Sara Post, Thomas Post and Jean Van Keuren, as well as collaborative works by Heidi Bekebrede, George Grant and Lillian Grant. Many pieces were created specifically for this event, or have never before been publicly displayed.

The fair trade shelves are a special attraction of this creative show. Anyone may select a functional object from the shelves, such as cups, plates or bowls — donated by one of the “Stretching Function” artists — and replace that object with an item of their own, equivalent in subjective value. The “fair trade” offer will continue until all original objects have been replaced by traded objects, at which point the collection of traded objects will become the new exhibit.

“Artober,” Davis Downtown’s monthlong celebration of arts and culture, will provide another opportunity for the public to engage with “Stretching Function” this month. Featured artists from the exhibit will offer a hands-on clay workshop from 1 to 2:30 p.m. Sunday. Participants can watch the artists at work, ask questions and create their own tea cup or possibly a mini teapot. The workshop is free with a suggested donation of $5 to $10 for materials.
