“Soup N’ Bowl” Event coming right up on March 1, 2012-Get tickets now
The St. George Art Museum’s annual “Soup N’ Bowl” luncheon and fundraiser will take place Friday, March 1, 2013 between 11:00 AM and 1:30 PM in the Social Hall on the Museum’s campus at 200 North Main in St. George.
This annual community event gives residents the opportunity to enrich their lives with art, have a light lunch, choose a hand-crafted bowl to take home and support the Art Museum at the same time.
A silent auction will give attendees a chance to bid on pottery works of art made by local professional artists including Glen Blakley, Dr. John M. & Suzanne Jennings, and Joe Viers, as well as pieces from Art Festival ceramic artists. Those in attendance will see the retail value of items up for bid and be able to write their bids on paper forms next to the article. Winners will be announced at the end of the luncheon.
Bowls crafted by Blakley, Jennings and Viers and many other local potters will be added to the collection of bowls to choose from at the event, as well as others made by students in the pottery programs at DSC, and other schools. Those who pay the $20 luncheon fee will be able to choose a bowl to take home from this collection. Bargain Bowls will also be available to purchase for attendees.
The “Soup N’ Bowl” provides an excellent opportunity for residents to support their local Art Museum and at the same time choose quality pottery art pieces from local artists.
Past annual “Soup N’ Bowls” have raised significant amounts that the Art Museum has been able to use to support displays and purchase paintings for the Museum’s permanent collection.
The Community Pot Throw participants created over 100 bowls at this fun and free event on January 25th at Dixie State College’s Ceramics department. Thank you to all participants and helpers: Joe Veirs, Glen Blakley, Brady Richardson, Sky Hubbard, Kathy Koldewyn, Nadene Barish, students, as well as the St. George Art Museum Advisory Board Members,
