Pottery Bowl brings together artists, personalities in Chilliwack

The annual Pottery Bowl raises money for the Chilliwack Community Arts Council's children’s art classes and more

People glaze bowls leading up to the Pottery Bowl fundraiser set for Oct. 22.

Warm up to fall this October with the Chilliwack Community Arts Council’s third annual Pottery Bowl fundraiser.

The centrepiece of the fundraiser is the selection of bowls that have been handcrafted and bisque-fired by local potters before being lovingly glazed and decorated by well-known personalities from the Chilliwack community.

From radio stars and artists to city councillors and local business and community leaders, a diverse range of artistic talents from all walks of life are represented in the distinctive pottery pieces.

“This collaborative event brings many local artists, professional potters, and prominent personalities together in support of our arts community,” says Patti Lawn, executive director of the Chilliwack Community Arts Council. “It is not only a great opportunity to purchase one-of-a-kind art but also to take a moment to appreciate the time and talent that goes into creating each piece.”

Hosted inside The Art Room, this autumnal event raises valuable funds for the arts council’s children’s art class programming, community events, and scholarship initiatives all while bringing together artists and local dignitaries in support of artistic expression in our city.

The talent behind each glazed design is kept a mystery until after it is chosen by the lucky purchaser.

To participate in the Pottery Bowl, guests may purchase the bowl of their choice for $20 during the event on Oct. 22. With each purchase, guests receive a cup of delicious soup and a freshly baked roll.

There will also be a silent auction and music by Henrie de Boer on acoustic guitar.

The Pottery Bowl fundraiser runs Oct. 22 from 3 to 6 p.m. at The Art Room (20-5725 Vedder Rd.). Visit chilliwackartscouncil.com/events/pottery-bowl for details and a listing of this year’s celebrity glazers or call 604-769-2787.
