Pottery, Soup and Music

This weekend Feathersone Center for the Arts in Oak Bluffs is holding its third annual Potters Bowl with guest curator Washington Ledesma.

The idea behind the event is both basic and beautiful. Visitors to the show are asked to buy a ceramic bowl for $25 and then they get a free bowl of soup plus a roll, drink and dessert. Talk about art literally satisyfing an inner hunger.

The event is also an opening reception for Featherstone’s Art of Flight ceramics show. Participating artists include Nancy Blank, Carl Mueller, Frank Creney, Jennifer McCurdy, Candy Shweder, Laurie Schreiber, Will Hunter, Debbie Hale, Sharry Stevens-Grunden, Dan Parker,

Bill O’Callaghan, Jennifer Rapuano Langhammer, Carolyn Henderson, Sarah Mayhew, John Robert Hill and Helayne Cohen. Wow, that’s a lot of folks getting busy with clay.

Kevin Keady makes music during the event, too.

The Potters Bowl is from 4 to 6 p.m. on Sunday, August 26. The show continues through Sept. 12.
