Empty Bowls Arts Festival

Nose Creek Park. Hot soup. Music. Art. A silent auction. Fun for the whole family. And free admission. Yowzer. What a deal. 🙂

It’s all in aid of the Airdrie Food Bank. The Empty Bowls Arts Festival, now in its 6th year, has become a wonderful outdoor community affair in Airdrie, AB.

Empty Bowls, an international event, started in 1990 in Michigan. A high school art class was searching for a way to raise money for a food drive.

The solution? The students made ceramic bowls and then held a fundraising meal. The menu was simple — soup and bread. Guests were invited to keep their bowls to remind them of hunger in the world.

You’ll have an opportunity to purchase a bowl too. For a $20 donation you can fill it with delicious hot soup. And you can keep the bowl. Sounds like a lot of fun for a very good cause.

I’m delighted to be taking part in Empty Bowls this year. I’m donating a piece of my jewelry to the silent auction and I’ll be at Nose Creek Park on Saturday June 23 from 11 to 5 showing some of my newest work.

Beads? What can I say — they snuck up on me when I wasn't looking. Now I'm hooked.
