Bowls wanted for Yancey County Empty Bowls event

Tori Motyl sends this message about Dig In's 2021 Empty Bowl event:

Greetings!
 
I participate in Empty Bowls because I’ve been inspired by the social change that artists around the world make by contributing their craft to their communities. YOU inspire me when I think of all the bowls thrown, blown, and built so that Dig In can share food with more than 200 families each week in Yancey County.
 
The theme of Dig In’s 2021 Empty Bowl event is “Community Care”, which will be held on Burnsville’s Town Square on October 8th from 4-7PM.
 
Thanks to the care of so many artists, both in their own studios and at our bowl making and glazing days, we currently have 179 bowls ready for our event. That leaves just 121 more bowls to reach our goal of 300 bowls for the Dig In Empty Bowls event. Can you help us get there?
 
Bowls can be dropped off between September 7th-October 6th at the fabulous OOAK Gallery.
 
If you would like someone to pick-up donated bowls or need more information, please contact me and I’m happy to help.
 
If you would like to help but are finding it financially difficult in these times to donate your work, please let us know. We would love to find ways to bring everyone together regardless of means.
 
Please also forward this email to any artists also making bowls, whether they be wood or glass or clay.The work Dig In does is made possible by the time, effort, and resources that you invest to make your beautiful bowls. Thank you, Artists, for your community care.  

Gratefully,
 
Tori Motyl
