Soup for Art Event Set for Sunday
Local potters, chefs and restaurants are donating bowls, soup and bread for the arts.
"What can be better than sampling homemade soups on a crisp fall afternoon?" asks Chris Dunn, executive director of the Arts Council of Moore County. "We hope to see a large crowd at the Campbell House for food, libations and live music, family style, on Sunday, Nov. 4, from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m."
The cost to attend the event is $30 for Arts Council members and $35 for nonmembers, and participants get to take their bowl home.
"We have commissioned some of the best Seagrove area potters to create a wonderful selection of soup bowls and soup mugs from which you may choose," says Dunn.
Sponsors include Jim Allen, Rep. Jamie Boles, Gwen Murray, and Carolyn and E.J. Vaughn.
Participating potters include Ben Owen III, Cady Clay Pottery, Chris Luther Pottery, Chrisco Pottery, Jugtown Pottery, Potts Pottery and Thomas Pottery.
Participating chefs and restaurants are 195, Chef Warren's, Joe Henderson, Goldie's Gourmet, Ice Cream Parlor, Kim Sobat, Rhett's, Sandhills Community College Culinary Department, Stu 'n' Lou, Sweet Basil, Broad Street Bakery, The Bakehouse and Panera Bread.
