UPCOMING EVENTS

Soup in the Studio

Art for the soul; soup for the bowl


Join us on Thursday, April 11th from 5 - 7 pm at the Muddy Waters Clay Center (2014 13th Ave N) for our annual Soup in the Studio event.

Enjoy live music and a number of mouthwatering soups crafted by local restaurants and purchase a beautiful artist-designed bowl and some delicious soup for a suggested donation of $30 (proceeds benefit Global Friends Coalition). This year's bowl is designed by Karla Nelson. There is a suggested donation of $10.00 if you wish to partake in a bowl of soup.

You can also pitch-in and assist the artists with finishing the bowls on Saturday, March 23rd from 9 AM - 12 PM at Muddy Waters Clay Center.
No experience required. Pizza will be provided for volunteers.
Amazing handmade bowls from local artists, appetizing soups from local chefs, and alluring music from local musicians.
