7th Annual “Soup for Good” Event Benefits Guilford Art Center and the Guilford Food Bank
The public is invited to a warm, soup supper while supporting two important shoreline organizations — Guilford Art Center and the Guilford Food Bank — at Soup for Good, Sunday, November 10, 4:30-6:30 pm at Guilford Art Center.
The dinner is hosted in the Guilford Art Center school, where guests can select from a variety of hearty soups, homemade breads, desserts and a glass of wine or sparkling water. Each guest can choose their own one-of-a-kind soup bowl, handcrafted by Guilford Art Center potters. Bowls will be washed for guests to take home “for good.”
After enjoying the soup dinner, guests are invited to the Center’s annual holiday shop that features beautiful fine craft work made by American artists. This shopping event, called Artistry: American Craft for the Holidays, is open from November 1 – January 5, 7 days a week.
Tickets for Soup for Good are $30 in advance, $35 at door. A portion of proceeds will benefit the Guilford Food Bank, as well as Guilford Art Center.

The Guilford Art Center is a non-profit school, shop and gallery established to nurture and support excellence in the arts. Through classes for adults and children, gallery programs, a shop of contemporary crafts, and special events, the Center fulfills its mission to provide opportunities for the public to participate in the arts, to experience their cultural and historical diversity, and to appreciate the process and product of creative work. Founded in 1967 (as the Guilford Handcraft Center), the Center evolved from the first Handcraft Expo, held on the Guilford Green in 1957. It currently serves over 2,000 students in classes, presents juried and invitational exhibits of art in the Center’s gallery and operates a shop of fine, handmade American crafts year-round. The Center also presents the Craft Expo, held on the Guilford Green each year in July, that features works by more than 180 of the country’s most distinguished artisans and is a much-anticipated annual event for the shoreline community.
