Local artisans contribute their time and talent to create ceramic bowls for the Empty Bowls fundraising event.

Robin Reynolds, DSU ceramics instructor, organizes Empty Bowls each year. Last year, the event raised more than $4,000 for local food pantries. For the event, local artisians contributed their time and resources to create one-of-a-kind, handcrafted ceramic bowls for the event. Special thanks for Sponsor bowls: Julie Schuster, Sarah Snavely, Caitlin Freidt, and Tod Winter.

Cost is $15 per bowl, limit two bowls per person. Soup and bread is provided.

Every year, approximately 2.3 to 3.5 million people in America experience hunger and homelessness. Empty Bowls Project is a national fundraising event to bring awareness to hunger in America. Proceeds of the North Dakota Empty Bowls go to food programs such as the Back Pack Program and Domestic Rape and Crisis Center. Sponsors for the ND Empty Bowls are Dickinson State University, Ramada Grand Dakota Hotel, United Way of Dickinson and Sacred Heart Monastery.

BAA May Meeting

Monthly Meetings & Location Changes

BAA Meeting Location has Changed.

During the April meeting, which was the last one to be held at DSU, attending members suggested new meeting locations such as Able, Fluffy Fields, Dickinson Extension Service and private homes. It was decided that May’s meeting will be held at Able, Inc. located at 1951 1st Street West. This is the general office of Able and not the Thrift Center. The general office is located across from the Dickinson Press.

BAA Meeting Tuesday, May 2 from 6:00 to 8:00 PM
ABLE, Inc. 1951 1st Street W. Dickinson, ND

At the meeting, members will create collage postcards.
Using collage papers adds a whole new element to your art so if you haven’t tried this technique, it will surely be eye opening and broaden possibilities. Please bring the following materials if you have them available. If you don’t, that’s ok too! We will have extra available.

  • · A watercolor wash brush
  • · Matte medium
  • · Small container to hold the matte medium
  • · Container for dirty water

SUMMER MEETINGS

The June meeting will be at the Dickinson Extension Service, the red “barn” across from the Recreation Center (the ice rink) and will be held on Wednesday June 21st at 6:30. A picnic and photography opportunities are on the agenda. The grounds at the Extension Service have exquisite flower beds and landscape plantings.
The July meeting, which will be filled with Fall Show information, has not yet been determined.
