Potters’ Bowl-A-Thon! An event in support of the 9th annual Troy Empty Bowls, 2014

July 25, 2014 — 06:00 PM

In support of the upcoming 9th annual Troy Empty Bowls event, held by the Collar City Clay Guild, The Arts Center is opening its bowl throwing season with a Potter’s Bowl-a-thon! Every year local potters make over 1400 bowls for this worthy event in order to raise money to benefit local food programs. In local clay studios potters of all ages and abilities donate their time and talents to create beautiful and unique bowls. At the Arts Center, we want to bring the making of the bowls to the attention of the public. So, on Troy Night Out, July 25th, 2014, from 6pm to 8pm in our black box theatre we will have potter’s wheels set up. Local potters can come in and throw some bowls in a fun and collegial atmosphere. All local potters are welcome to participate, and the public is invited to watch! All bowls completed will be trimmed and glazed and donated to the 2014 Troy Empty Bowls event on October 5th at The Italian Community Center on 5th avenue in Troy. We also want to invite the public to watch the bowls grow, as we slowly start adding completed bowls to our tally and stack them in the window of The Arts Center. Come watch the potters throw, and show your support for a worthy cause!
