The Empty Bowls Project 2010

 The art program at Transylvania University invites the community to help feed the hungry by doing some early Christmas shopping for beautiful handmade ceramic bowls at the Morlan Gallery Dec. 6 -8.

The Morlan Gallery opens its doors at noon on Monday, Dec. 6 to sell handmade soup bowls for $10 each; larger bowls will be individually priced.

All proceeds go to the Catholic Action Center, a local charity missioned to help feed Lexington's hungry. Every bowl purchase earns a ticket to a vegetarian bean soup supper served on Wed., Dec. 8, 6-7 .m. in the Rafskellar, located just below the Morlan Gallery.

Cash and checks only please; limited bowl supply. As of Tuesday, we have hundreds of bowls to choose from! Parking available on side streets, such as Upper and Fouth Streets.
