UPCOMING EVENTS

20th Buchanan
Empty Bowls Soup Supper

TheBowl_W600.jpg

Buchanan High School
401 West Chicago Street · Buchanan, MI
 
Friday, April 17  ♥  4:30 - 7 pm
 
We hope that you will attend and purchase a hand-made ceramic bowl along with a simple soup supper and help end hunger. All potters, students, teachers, administrators, parents, donors and other volunteers who have worked over the years to make Empty Bowls so successful in Buchanan are invited to join us in celebrating.

There will be a memorabilia table and an open potters wheel for past potters to "throw" one for old times sake. All profits from the supper and presales will be donated to Redbud Area Ministries (RAM) food pantry in Buchanan.

This philanthropic project is made possible by a partnership of Buchanan Art Center, Buchanan Community Schools, Redbud Area Ministries, and local potters, as well as the continuing generosity of local merchants, area foundations, and our caring community.

Adult potters' bowls may be pre-purchased at the BAC February 25 through April 11.

There will also be a commemorative T-shirt available for pre-order in March; further information will be sent out by the schools and on BAC's website and Facebook.

FERNWOOD AND THE BUCHANAN ART CENTER
PARTNER FOR THE ARTS
 

Fernwood Spring Bus Trip: Kokomo Glass Tour
Friday, April 10, 7am-5pm

(Note: BAC members can go on this trip at Fernwood member prices)

About the Kokomo Opalescent Glass Company: The discovery of hundreds of natural gas wells in Indiana in the 1880s brought many entrepreneurs and glass factories to the area. This tour will visit one of the oldest operating glass factories, the Kokomo Opalescent Glass Company, who supplied stained glass to great artists such as Louis Tiffany, J & R Lamb, and John LaFarge, and continues to make beautiful glass today. Watch the process of making sheet glass, blown glass, and glass beads, then visit their OP Shop to purchase items produced by local artisans. After lunch (on your own), we head to the Greentown Glass Museum to see a huge collection of glass products from the Indiana Tumbler and Goblet Company, also known as Greentown Glass. Items produced at the glass factory, which burned down in 1903, are highly collectible and sought after.

BAC members should call 269.695.6491 to register, and tell the front desk they are BAC members: $72 (Fernwood and Buchanan Art Center Members $60)

Reservations must be made by March 27 to guarantee your seat on the bus, so call today!
