    Hub City Empty Bowls Launches 2017

    Hub City Empty Bowls -- an annual fundraiser that uses handmade pottery bowls to feed hungry Spartanburg citizens -- has set the 2017 dates for its well-attended events. There will be three regularly scheduled bowl-making events: Saturday, July 15, 10 a.m.-noon and 1-3 p.m. in Spartanburg Art Museum's pottery studio at Chapman Cultural Center; Thursday, July 20, 5-8 p.m. at West Main Artists Co-Op, during ArtWalk; and Saturday, August 26, 10 a.m.-noon and 1-3 p.m. at Chapman Cultural Center. Soup Day will be Saturday, October 28, 11 a.m.-4 p.m. at Chapman Cultural Center. All events are free and family friendly.
    Hub City Empty Bowls is a localized fundraiser inspired the international Empty Bowls decentralized program. Locally, the program's spearhead Carolina Clay Artists coordinates public bowl-making sessions. At no charge, citizens of all ages are given supplies, tools, space, and instructions on how to make hand-shaped pottery bowls. Those unfinished bowls are left at the venue to be painted and fired by experienced potters. Bowls often made by children can be simple, primitive, and charming. Others made by experienced potters can be precise, intricate, and sophisticated.
    With hundreds of bowls created by local citizens, Carolina Clay Artists then hosts Soup Day, an event where patrons receive the bowls -- each for a $15 donation to TOTAL Ministries, a local charity that provides food and other resources to people in financial crisis. In addition to receiving bowls, the patrons can enjoy a meal of soup, bread, and tea donated by the community's leading restaurants, hear live music, bid in a silent auction, and enjoy the fellowship and comradery of knowing they are helping to feed people in need. In 2016, the Carolina Clay Artists donated a record-breaking $33,000 to TOTAL Ministries.
    "Coordinating Hub City Empty Bowls is a massive undertaking," 2017 Chairman Bruce Bowyer said. "People want to know as soon as possible about our dates so they can plan accordingly. Some people come to all of the bowl-making sessions and Soup Day. Plus, by setting the dates early, we can better handle the large crowds of people who normally show up. It is not unusual for us to have several hundred people come to a bowl-making session. And come Soup Day, we'll see more than a thousand."
    Despite the crowds, it is seldom anyone has to wait to make a bowl or enjoy Soup Day. Space, volunteers, and experience are plentiful enough to keep everyone engaged.
    Carolina Clay Artists is a local group of hobbyist and professional potters who come together monthly to share ideas, hold workshops and demos, and tour pottery studios to see other artists' work and learn new ideas. It is open to all who have an interest in learning and sharing about pottery. Annual dues are $35. Hub City Empty Bowls is the group's annual charity fundraising event to help feed the hungry.
    TOTAL Ministries got its start in 1982 as Project Eat. Founder Dannie Horne saw an unemployment rate of 9.7% and that many people in Spartanburg County were hungry. During the first 17 months of Project Eat's existence, $190,000 of groceries were distributed in an effort to alleviate that problem. In 1983, TOTAL Ministries of Spartanburg County, Inc. was incorporated by 12 Spartanburg churches to carry on the work of Project Eat. Since then, additional emergency services have been added to the TOTAL mission in an effort to help those in need. For those in need, TOTAL can help with utility services, food, and medications.
    Empty Bowls started in 1990 by Michigan art teacher John Hartom, who organized a charitable event to give his art students a way to make a personal difference in the lives of others in their community. Hartom's students made pottery bowls in their high school art classes, and the finished products were then used as individual serving pieces for a fundraising meal of soup and bread. From that simple beginning, Empty Bowls has spread around the world, taking root in communities both small and large. Spartanburg had its first Empty Bowls program in 2009. All Empty Bowls efforts are locally based with all proceeds going to a local charity with a mission to alleviate hunger in its community. None of the money raised leaves the community. The lead agency, Carolina Clay Artists, donates all of its time and talents, and receives no monetary benefit. Locally, all proceeds go to TOTAL Ministries.

    Description
    SPARTANBURG, SC Chapman Cultural Center in downtown Spartanburg provides casual and cultural entertainment every Sunday for the public's enjoyment. The Center's Sundays Unplugged program features free admission to the art galleries and history museum, 1-5 p.m., and a free singer-songwriter concert by a regional musician, 2-4 p.m. This Sunday, July 5, alternative and colonial Gothic artist Neil Lee Griffin performs. Chapman Cultural Center will be closed Friday and Saturday, July 3 and 4, for the Independence Day holiday weekend.

    Growing up in the Upstate, Griffin faced adversity due to his stutter. Struggling to even say his own name, other children teased him relentlessly. However, growing up with a piano and guitar, Griffin found comfort in music, discovering that his stutter disappeared when he sang. Now, under the nickname Scarecrow (South Carolina Association for Raising Education Concerning Restrictive Oratory Walls), he helps others with a stutter find similar comfort through his talent. Though he mainly performs in the colonial gothic genre, he dabbles in jazz, metal, world music, and others. Griffin's personal style is dark folk that tells stories. He also writes scores for film and television.

    Griffin's concert will be complemented by free admission to Artists' Guild of Spartanburg, Spartanburg Art Museum, and Spartanburg Regional History Museum. Spartanburg Science Center will be open for a small fee.

    For more information on Sundays Unplugged at Chapman Cultural Center, call (864) 542-ARTS or visit ChapmanCulturalCenter.org.

    Description
    The second bowl-making sessions for Hub City Empty Bowls 2016 will be Thursday, July 21, 6-8:30 p.m. at West Main Artists Co-Op, in Spartanburg, SC. These will be a free event, clay and instruction provided, where anyone can make a handmade pottery bowl that will be used to raise funds to feed local hungry citizens. This fall Saturday, Oct. 15, 11 a.m.-4 p.m. the lead organization Carolina Clay Artists will host Soup Day at Chapman Cultural Center, when the bowls will be used for fundraising. For a $15 donation, a patron will receive the bowl of his or her choice and a simple meal of gourmet soup, bread, and tea. The money will be given to TOTAL Ministries, a faith-based organization in Spartanburg that helps local citizens who need food because of financial hardship. As one of Spartanburg's most successful fundraisers, Empty Bowls donated $26,000 in 2015. Statistics say about 15 percent of Spartanburg's population (42,980 people) is "food insecure." The rate for Spartanburg children is 22.5 percent or 15,600 individuals. The last bowl-make event is slated for Saturday, Aug. 27. For complete details, please visit online HubCityEmptyBowls.com or call (864) 585-9167
