ACP’s Soul-Filled Bowls To Benefit Local Charities

The Arts Council of Princeton’s ceramics community of students, instructors, and local ceramic artists are creating more than 200 handmade bowls in anticipation of the second annual fundraiser, Soul-Filled Bowls, to be on display in the Arts Council of Princeton’s Taplin Gallery on Saturday, December 2 from 11-3 p.m. The public is invited to purchase handmade ceramic bowls for $20 each, and enjoy a complimentary bowl of soup generously donated by Blawenburg Cafe and bread provided by Italian People’s Bakery and LiLLiPies. One hundred percent of the funds will be donated to Mercer Street Friends and Meals on Wheels.

In honor of Beryl Gwen Curschmann, the Arts Council of Princeton will also have a showing and sale of her collection. Curschmann took classes at Princeton University under the tutelage of Toshiko Takaezu in the 1970s. She built a studio with her husband Michael and enjoyed traveling and collecting all aspects of ceramics. Michael, who passed away in October, donated pieces from their collection to the Arts Council of Princeton. The collection will be on display in the Arts Council’s Sands Gallery on December 2, and then will move to the Taplin Gallery.

The Arts Council of Princeton’s Paul Robeson Center for the Arts is at 102 Witherspoon Street in Princeton. Parking is available in the Spring and Hulfish Street garages and at metered parking spots along Witherspoon Street and Paul Robeson Place. For more information, visit
