Empty Bowls event THIS WEEKEND to benefit First Light!

Tena Payne, owner of Earthborn Studios in Leeds, has been a supporter of First Light’s gala for years. Last year, she began doing a fundraiser called Empty Bowls during the same time she does the Blue Light Special Art Show. Basically, you can make a $25 donation and get a delicious bowl of soup made by one of Birmingham’s prominent chefs, and you take home a bowl handmade by one of many donating potters. You can do this all while getting some of your Christmas shopping done at the Blue Light Special Art Show! There will be discounted art available in all mediums by more than 50 local artists.
