April 19, 2019

Empty Bowls is an effort to help feed the hungry in communities across the nation. Locally, Archway Gallery is lending its support to the effort.

Archway Gallery, located at 2305 Dunlavy, will present various pieces representing different empty bowls. According to a news release, at Archway more than “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 both 2D and 3D Archway Gallery artists. The Empty Bowls artwork may be purchased through the month-long Silent Auction with proceeds benefiting the Houston Food Bank.”

Empty Bowls Houston, benefiting the Houston Food Bank, is being presented by local sponsors and implemented by Houston-area artists working in various media. 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 craft artists. Participants then receive a simple lunch of soup and bread.”
