SAINT PETER, MINN. – Dozens of specialty bowls with new shapes, carvings, and glaze combinations will be among the 400 hand-thrown artisan bowls for sale at the Arts Center of Saint Peter’s annual “Souper Bowl” event on Tuesday, March 17, from 3:00-7:00 p.m. at the Arts Center of Saint Peter, 315 S. Minnesota Avenue, St. Peter.
“We’ll have two checkout lines this year to keep things moving,” says Executive Director Ann Rosenquist Fee. “There’s always a crowd at first, people looking for specialty bowls to add to their collections. It’s a wonderful community gathering.”
A tradition for more than two decades, “Souper Bowl” showcases the artistry of area potters who work together to throw, trim, fire and glaze bowls in a variety of sizes and styles.
Regular bowls are priced at $10, $12 and $15, which includes the bowl, a choice of soup, bread, and beverages, donated by Patrick’s on Third, St. Peter Food Co-Op & Deli (vegan/gluten-free), Lola-An American Bistro, River Rock Coffee, and River Rock Bakery. A limited number of specialty bowls are $20. All proceeds benefit the Arts Center.
This year’s event is sponsored and hosted by Wealth Management Solutions: A private wealth advisory practice of Ameriprise Financial Services, Inc.
