Houston Food Bank presents Empty Bowls Houston
Empty Bowls Houston is presented by Whole Foods Market and implemented locally by Houston-area ceramists and artists working in various media and benefiting Houston Food Bank. For a minimum $25 donation, attendees of the Houston Center for Contemporary Craft event have the pleasure of selecting a bowl from hundreds of one-of-a-kind, handcrafted bowls donated by Houston area ceramists and craft artists. Participants then receive a simple lunch of soup donated by Whole Foods Market and freshly prepared by Houston Food Bank Community Kitchen.
At Archway Gallery, over 30 finely crafted, one-of-a-kind bowls made of ceramic, wood, glass, and fiber, will be displayed in addition to the work submitted by Archway Gallery members including Tom Irven, Andy and Virginia Bally, Gene Hester and Paula Haymond.
The preview party at Archway Gallery will take place on May 7, while the main Empty Bowls event will take place on May 14 at Houston Center for Contemporary Craft. The Empty Bowls artwork may be purchased through the month-long Silent Auction with proceeds benefiting the Houston Food Bank.
