Calling all fans of Art Chat!

Hello!  Would you like to participate in an online community art project and help us spread the word about Art Chat?  Show us your “mugs”!

The purpose is to create an online art gallery displaying a collection of coffee mugs, tea cups, drinking glasses and other beverage containers (whatever you are drinking while tuning in) that collectively represent all of us together on Zoom in “Gallery View” during Art Chat.

Non-representational and abstract artists are welcome too!  As long as you feel inspired by the idea of your beverage and Art Chat, that’s grand!

Given the international nature of Art Chat, we will love to see the different time zones represented by drinks from various times of day and all the styles, mediums and types of drinks representing the artists in the Art Chat community.  

Be a part of the Art Chat "Mug" Gallery!

We will be using Instagram for submissions in 2022 because the hashtag #artchatthursday will display all our bevvies together on Instagram and it helps us get the word out about Art Chat.
