WHAM-Art to hold its 9th annual Bowls of Hope sale and holiday celebration featuring local artists who help raise money and awareness to help eliminate hunger in the West Valley.
On December 2, WHAM Art Gallery, located at 16560 N. Dysart Road, Surprise, will make available for sale over 500 one-of-a-kind food safe glazed bowls in an open-air bazaar and art sale held in front of, and within, the gallery. There will be an opportunity to glaze your own bowl in a classroom taught by local artist Marty Wolfe.
The proceeds from the sale will once again go directly to support local charities including St. Mary’s Food Bank and Eve’s place, Homeless Youth Connect, StreetLight USA, All Faith Community Services and the Valley Vista Community Food Bank.
‘This year we are adding to the event by providing entertainment and making available great food from a local business’, says Connie Whitlock, Executive Director of WHAM. ‘We want the community to know that WHAM is a Community Gallery and there are over 13 outreach programs and dozens of classes held right here. Classes for beginners and experts alike.’ The price for most bowls range from $12 to $15. Other one-of-a-kind art will also be available for sale.
