On the evening of October 8th, Ken Shipley, professor in the ceramics area of the art department of Austin Peay State University and the APSU ‘Mud Club”, will be hosting the 2nd Annual “Bowl-a-Thon” from 5PM to 9:00 PM in the ceramics area of the Trahern building. The purpose of the “Bowl-a-Thon” is to produce a number of bowls for the “Empty Bowls” project. As stated on organization website, “Empty Bowls” goals are “to raise money to help organizations fight hunger, to raise awareness about the issues of hunger and food security, and to help bring about an attitude that will not allow hunger to exist.” The project, in conjunction with artists and art organizations, produce the bowls, which are donated to the Urban Ministries of Clarksville. Participants are welcome to come the full duration, or for as much as they are capable, with any attendance thoroughly appreciated. Those persons attending who are not capable of “throwing” the bowls will be taught handmade methods on site. Please join us for a fun evening, for a great cause.
“Bowl-a-Thon” at 5 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 8, 2011 in the Trahern Building.
