Wild Game

PONY—Tom Elpel has written books about everything from foraging for mushrooms to masonry and the U.S. economy. But his latest project strays some from his usual outdoor education endeavors: a wildlife-based board game designed to teach young players about the interconnected nature of animals, people and the earth.

Artists on display at Gallery 287 in Ennis donated some of their handmade bowls to be used at an “Empty Bowls” fundraiser on Saturday, December 8. Attendees purchased a bowl, which was then filled with homemade soup, salad and bread. Proceeds benefitted the Ennis Meals on Wheels program. (R. Colyer photos)

Empty bowls, full hearts

ENNIS – Artist and Gallery 287 owner Cathy Toot has been familiar with the nationwide “Empty Bowls” fundraiser series for quite a while, and with a selection of local potters’ work on display in her gallery, thought it was time that she brought the movement to Ennis.
