Soup-porting the Arts
By Catherine Cluett Pactol
Local ceramic artists created more than 400 pottery bowls for this year’s Molokai Arts Center annual Soup R Bowl event, held last Saturday at Lanikeha. Attendees picked their favorite bowl, filled it with soup of their choice and enjoyed the music of the Molokai Instrumental Music Education program led by Bob Underwood, and Malama Molokai Wellness with musicians Kala Bishaw-Juario and Kaleo Bishaw.
The 12th annual event supports the Molokai Arts Center’s art education programs, including classes for keiki and kupuna. Guests were also able to meet the potters who made their bowls — Dan Bennett, Emillia Noordhoek, Kim Markham, Betty West and Maricel Kanemitsu. Additional pottery and art by Molokai artists was also available for sale.
