Milwaukee Empty Bowls
Sunday, October 8th 2017
Kern Center - M.S.O.E 1245 N. Broadway Ave. Milwaukee

Since 1999, Milwaukee Empty Bowls has donated $704,000 to help feed those in need in the Milwaukee metro area. More than 95% of the funds raised during this perennially popular event – held around World Food Day – go directly to aid the hungry in our community.
Guests at our October event have their choice from a collection of more than 2,000 ceramic bowls handcrafted and donated by local artists, teachers and students.
Soups prepared by local chefs are served with bread and other refreshments. Some of the area’s top musicians entertain guests throughout the day. (Check back as we continue to update information on this year’s restaurants and supporters!) Guests take their bowls home to serve as a reminder that there are always empty bowls in our community.

Art show and Reception 
“Splooshes of Fall” 

Featured Artist: Noelle Kraemer 
Saturday, October 21, 1pm - 3pm, 
The show will remain up through November 15.
This is Noelle’s second art show and sale at Lake Country Fine Arts.  Her first show, 2 years ago, was so successful she sold more than half of her paintings.  It is with great pleasure that we host her beautiful pieces again.
Since Noelle’s serious car accident during a February snow storm in 2008, and after a long grueling recovery process, she has been painting and loves being able to share her art with others.
She loves to create paintings that make people smile. Her paintings have a vibrance and depth that is hard to capture on a canvas. Splooshing is the term that Noelle made up to describe her brush technique. Her hand isn't able to direct a controlled brush stroke, instead she "splooshes". It is a quick tap of a thick paint filled brush to the canvas. She would like to share her art work with the public during this free art show and reception.
Join the community for inspiring art and tasty refreshments. During the show Noelle will be selling her work and donating 25% of the sales to B.I.R.C., the Brain Injury Resource Center of WI.  The art show will continue  through November 15th.
