And now for something (completely) different

"Table Manners" is a group exhibition running Oct. 1-Nov. 27 at Lark & Key Gallery in South End, with pottery for the table (as in, you can use it), aimed at bringing "awareness to the handmade in conjunction to the homemade," says the press for the event. "The combination of homemade and handmade allows us to focus on the moment -- the aromas, tastes and textures of the food along with the visual and tactile experience of the vessels in which it is being served." Ceramic artists Julie Wiggins and Amy Sanders are curating. and the show will include work by several potters, including Elizabeth Robinson (below). Backdrops include work by Duy Huynh of the gallery ("Slow Food For Thought," at right).

On Nov. 5, ARTfeast will happen 6-9 p.m., bringing fare from local, sustainable food producers into the gallery for sale, including Grateful Growers and The Secret Chocolatier. Also on hand: a pottery demo by Wiggins, a trunk show of jewelry, and live music from Justin Faircloth. 128 E. Park Ave.; 704-334-4616; www.larkandkey.com.
