Haitian Empty Bowl Project a Huge Success!

You probaby heard about the Empty Bowl Project we participated in last month. Well, it was a HUGE success! When the earthquake hit Haiti, we knew we had to do something to help. So, Joyce Brown, CGMS Gallery Director, started the Empty Bowl project. She put out a call to artists to create and donate ceramic bowls that would be sold in the Gallery, with 100% of sales proceeds benefiting Haitian relief efforts. Several HUNDRED bowls were created and donated by fantastic artists. On March 20th, folks picked up their bowls and were treated to free food from 16 Lake Worth restaurants. What a great day! Thanks to Joyce, all the artists who created bowls and to the wonderful restaurants and vendors in Lake Worth that made this event such a great success!!
