ELKINS — From noon to 3 p.m. Sunday, The Arts Center will present its fifth annual Bowlfest luncheon.

Proceeds from Bowlfest benefit The Arts Center and its 1 Park Street Studio pottery location.

“Bowlfest gives the community the chance to visit The Arts Center, and to take a piece of really beautiful, handmade pottery home with them,” said Arts Center Executive Director Kurt Barkley.

Bowlfest is an annual event that features a soup, salad, bread and dessert lunch. Also included in the ticket price, guests can select from a wide variety of unique, handmade bowls to take home with them.

All of the bowls are handmade by local artisans, many of them crafted in The Arts Center’s 1 Park Street Studios. Pottery, wood, and gourd bowls are all available.

“Each year, our potters and other craftspeople create these beautiful bowls for us then donate them for us to use for Bowlfest. We’re extremely grateful to all of our artists, Jennifer and Kevin Boyle, Susan Pell, Maggi Rhudy, Danielle Cade, Dave Shombert, and many others who make these for us. It’s a great event, with great food and a bowl,” Barkley said.

The Arts Center is located on the corner of Randolph Avenue and Park Street, the former St. Brendan’s Catholic Church. Plenty of free parking is available.
