Lexington, Ky. (Nov. 8, 2002) -- Local artists and University of Kentucky art students under the direction of UK art professor Bobby Scroggins will meet at 6 p.m. Friday, Nov. 15, to produce ceramic bowls to be sold in December to benefit local charities.

The public is invited to join the ceramic students in creating the bowls in 212 Reynolds Building located at 672 South Broadway.

Another bowl-making session will be conducted at 6 p.m. Friday, Dec. 6, in the Reynolds Building and will include Tates Creek High School art students taught by Jan Wozniak.

Bowls will be sold in 220 Reynolds Building (the ceramics studio). Scroggins said the bowls will make excellent holiday gifts and at $10 each "are prices everyone can afford."

This is the second annual UK Bowl-A-Thon that Scroggins and his students have conducted. Last year's Bowl-A-Thon resulted in more than $5,000 in sales that benefited the victims of the 9/11 tragedies in New York City and Washington, D.C.

This year's Bowl-A-Thon is being sponsored by the UK Student League of Independent Potters (SLIP).

SLIP spokesperson Katie Ticknor said the funds raised in the sales will be equally divided between Minds Wide Open, an organization that provides an open art studio for people who have physical or mental disabilities, and Adopt-A-Minefield, a United Nations-sanctioned association which has a Bluegrass chapter and works to deactivate un-detonated landmines in impoverished countries that have been subjected to military conflict.
