Bowls from Many Hands/Soup from Many Sources will be held from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 6, at the train depot, 525 Oak St., Waupaca.
The event is the Waupaca Community Arts Center’s major fundraiser for the year and is kicking off the center’s celebration of its five-year anniversary.
The $17 cost includes a bowl that was handpainted by an artist, soup, homemade bread and dessert. Beverages will be available for purchase.
Approximately 14 artists, who show their work at the arts center, painted the bowls.
No two bowls are alike, and they are already on sale at the arts center, which is located at 200 N. Main St.
People may purchase bowls in advance and bring them to the event – the bowls will be their tickets.
Bowls will also be available for purchase on the day of the fundraiser.
Those who attend will be able to choose one of these four soups – tomato basil from Cronies Cafe and Espresso Bar, beef vegetable from the Waupaca Woods Restaurant, chicken potpie soup from Sisters Fine Deli and Coffee Haus or beet borscht from Bonni Miller.
The fundraiser is being sponsored in part by First National Bank and Farmers State Bank, Waupaca.
The event is being held on the same day as the Hidden Studios tour and will also include upcycled art, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Visitors will get to see the train depot that is the Waupaca Historical Society is working to refurbish.
The Waupaca Community Arts Center’s 5th anniversary is in November and will celebrate that milestone later that month, in conjunction with the grand opening of Selene Bloedorn-Saeed’s business, Glacial Acres.
