BUILDING COMMUNITY ONE BOWL AT A TIME

Applewild Announces Community-Wide Initiative to Combat Hunger


FITCHBURG, MA (October 10, 2016): In conjunction with United Neighbors of Fitchburg and the Empty Bowls Project, a nonprofit organization committed to bringing awareness to and ending hunger, members of Applewild School and the local community will strive to craft up to 1,000 clay and wooden bowls.  Created by students, faculty, staff, and local community members, all  proceeds through the sales of the bowls will go to United Neighbors of Fitchburg to combat hunger in the local community.  Christie Stover, Head of School at Applewild, stated “Applewild is proudly rooted in Fitchburg, and we are so pleased to join with our community to support ending the tremendous challenge of local food insecurity.”  Community members - at Applewild and throughout Fitchburg, Central MA, and Southern NH - are invited to make clay bowls in the School’s art studios to support the initiative’s goals. The bowls will be sold during the holiday season and at a special School event, Applewild About Arts, in the spring.

For those who would like to help combat local hunger by creating a clay bowl to be sold at a later time, Applewild will host Open Studios -on Thursday, November 10 from 6 - 7:30pm for community leaders and members.  To attend on November 10, or to order a bowl in advance of the holiday season, please email Sara Sanford at ssanford@applewild.org.  There is no RSVP needed to attend the Harvest Fair’s Open Studio. Additionally, attendees of the school’s Admission Open House on November 6th will be able to participate in this initiative.

The Empty Bowls Project at Applewild officially kicks off on October 18th with a two-week artist-in-residency featuring master potter Shana Brautigam, owner of Rooted in Clay in Rindge, NH. Ms. Brautigam’s collaboration with Applewild is supported by the School’s Marshall Fund for the Arts, a yearly program that brings artists from a variety of backgrounds to Applewild.  “It was a natural progression to bring together the Marshall Fund For The Arts, the Empty Bowls Project, and the greater community to combat hunger here in Fitchburg” said Sara Sanford, Applewild’s Visual Arts Department Chair.--
