LEXINGTON, Ky.—Transylvania University students, faculty and staff as well as potters from across Kentucky will use their artistic talents to benefit Lexington’s Community Action Council this holiday season with the Morlan Gallery’s Empty Bowls Project, Friday, December 1, through Friday, December 8, 2006.
Potters from around Kentucky have been making colorful ceramic bowls for the exhibition. On Friday, December 8, a closing reception and supper will be held from 5-7 p.m., in the Rafskeller located in the Mitchell Fine Arts Center. Dinner is free with the purchase of a $10 ceramic bowl; dinner only is $5. In addition to the $10 soup bowls, larger, one-of-a-kind artists’ bowls will be sold at a higher fixed price.
The proceeds for these larger bowls will be equally divided among the artist
and the Community Action Council, a local agency that provides meals, clothing
and living essentials to Fayette County residents.
Gallery hours are weekdays from noon-5 p.m. For more information go to the Morlan Gallery web site, www.transy.edu/morlan, call the public relations office at 233-8120 or Morlan Gallery Director Andrea Fisher at 233-8142.
