Fall is a gathering. Raking leaves, to be sure, but also assembling in front of a fire or around a table. Thanksgiving, of course, may be the pinnacle of gathering. And yet it’s not just family and friends and food that provide the pleasure: It’s the tableware itself. The legacy of an gift reappearing, an ancestors cherished cake stand or cruet returning. Scope artists focus on functional ware that showcase a family recipe and hoping that the dish you choose becomes a cherished family heirloom.


The “Delec-table: Tableware” show at Scope Gallery runs October 30 - December 3, 2023. Hours are Monday - Friday 11:00 am - 6:00 pm., Saturday and Sunday 10:00 am - 6:00 pm. Please check or for any changes to scheduled opening times. The gallery is located at 105 North Union Street, ground floor, Studio 19 of the Torpedo Factory Art Center, Alexandria, VA. 22314.
