Everyone gets to take home a beautiful bowl.

That’s one of the lovely benefits of supporting the Chilliwack Community Arts Council and its first fundraiser, The Pottery Bowl, on Saturday, Oct. 18.

Here is how it works.

Bring $20 to the Art Room that afternoon, and enjoy a tasty bowl of freshly made soup. Then simply take the bowl home when lunch is done.

“These one-of-a-kind bowls have all been handmade by local potters Holly McKeen, Kelly McQuhae, Jan Pratt, and Sue Schellenberg, and were decorated by 27 local celebrities,” said Patti Lawn, executive director of Chilliwack Community Arts Council.

As soon as a bowl is selected, the artist who decorated it will be revealed.

There will be live music by Mark Andre, as well as a harvest market on site, courtesy of Greendale Herb and Vine.

All proceeds from the Oct. 18 event will go support arts and crafts programs at The Art Room, home of the Chilliwack Community Arts Council.
