Featherstone Center for the Arts holds its annual Potters Bowl on Sunday, Sept. 10 from 4 to 6 p.m., a fundraiser featuring bowls created by Island potters.

For $40, attendees select a handmade bowl to be filled with locally-made soup from a variety of Island vendors. More than 200 bowls are created by around 20 local artists, each of whom donates their work — some creating as many as 60 bowls — in support of Featherstone’s pottery studio.

All potters are invited to donate to the fundraiser, and participants range from seasoned professionals whose work is recognized in galleries Islandwide to Featherstone instructors and students who have taken advantage of the center’s open studio hours over the past few weeks to make bowls from reclaimed clay with the purpose of donating.

In its 12 years, the Potters Bowl consistently sees a line of attendees waiting to choose their unique and functional art piece. This fundraiser, though one of the center’s more modest, is a community favorite.

“It’s successful because it’s a fun, community oriented and affordable fundraiser, which can sometimes be rare on the Vineyard,” said Posie Haeger, Featherstone’s director of programming and communications.
