View’s 9th Annual Chili Bowl Luncheon will be taking place on Saturday, February 21 from 11:30 am until 2:00 pm. Homemade meat & vegetarian chili, stews and soups prepared by local restaurants, will be served in handmade bowls from the Pottery Workshop at View as well as many artists who deliver their bowls to View from towns nearby and as far away as Ithaca and Syracuse.
The potters this year are making a variety of styles of crock type bowls with either one or two handles attached. Many of the local and area potters who have been making the bowls for this event will also be displaying their works in the Regional Ceramics Exhibition from February 12 until March 12.
One of the participating local potters, Bette Rintrona, has been creating pottery for over 30 years. She teaches hand building classes at View where she is also an active volunteer. She has been coordinating the pottery contributions from local and regional artists. Rintrona expects there will be around 400 bowls at this year’s Chili Bowl Luncheon, with most potters contributing 10 to 25 bowls each.
The Chili Bowl Luncheon will be held at View in Gould Hall. All proceeds will benefit View Arts Center.
