To Do: Empty Bowls and Edible Art

This Saturday, May 17, brings the annual

Empty Bowls Houston

at the Houston Center for Contemporary Craft and Lawndale Art Center. For a donation of $25 or more, guests will receive a soup lunch provided by

Sweet Tomatoes

restaurants, with bread from Whole Foods Bakehouse. There will be live music by the Southern Backtones, Two-Star Symphony and Mickey Moseley. But best of all are the one-of-a-kind bowls up for grabs -- each guest gets to choose his own -- made by ceramists, wood turners, glassblowers, fiber artists, metal smiths, painters, sculptors, and other artists and craftspeople. Proceeds benefit the Houston Food Bank.

And speaking of art and food, The Art Institute of Houston presents a show by Chef Francis Jacquinet, "Please Don't Eat the Art: An Artist's Work in Both Edible Mediums and Conventional Art Forms" at its Steve Gregg Gallery (1900 Yorktown). See his chocolate sculptures, cocoa paintings, bread sculptures and more through July 11.
