Sixth Annual Bowlfest set for Sunday

ELKINS — From noon to 2 p.m. Sunday, The Arts Center will hold its sixth 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 luncheon event which features soups, salads and breads. 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 and wooden bowls are available from which guests may select.

“Each year, potters and other craftspeople create these beautiful bowls for us, then donate them for us to use at our Bowlfest event. We’re extremely grateful to all of our artists, Mike Kerns, Valerie Mendel, Danielle Cade, Dave Shombert, and others who make these for us. It’s a great event, with great food, and a handmade bowl which would cost far more than the ticket price if you were to buy it,” said Barkley. “This fundraiser helps us to continue supporting the children’s programming we provide to our region every year, and is a wonderful way to support The Arts Center.”

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.
