Florence Food Share opens call to artists

Empty Bowls seeks potters

May 4, 2022 — It’s planning time, and Florence Food share is searching for artists of all mediums to participate in its annual Empty Bowls fundraiser.

“If you’re not a potter making ceramic bowls, there is no need to worry; we accept artwork from artists who work in all mediums,” said Empty Bowls Committee member Desiree Clifton. “Food Share can also help with supplies and ceramic firing for artists, thanks to the generosity of community sponsors.”

Every year, Florence Food Share’s premier Empty Bows fundraising event presents hand-made bowls, various art pieces, and extensive silent auction items to the public for purchase. All proceeds contribute to Florence Food Share’s mission to help alleviate hunger in Western Lane County. Local artists, volunteers, and the business community all work together to make this family friendly event successful.

The Empty Bowls planning committee is making a call to community members who would like to participate by creating bowls, or by donating artwork or silent auction items. If you would like to participate, contact Kathy Shamey at 541-997-2663.

The 26th Annual Empty Bowls event will be held the first weekend in December, at the Florence Events Center.
