From the Clay Studio… a herd of African cows!

Over the past several weeks, our friends from the Sudanese Education Fund in Arlington have been busy up in ACA’s clay studio, creating a herd of over 100 cows for their 10th Anniversary Gala Fundraiser, held last weekend at Arlington Town Hall.

We had to photograph these guys before the left for the fundraiser!

Here’s one batch, just out of the kiln

They came in all shapes, sizes and colors…

And they all seemed to have their own personalities… we hated to see them go, but we knew they were off to greener pastures..!

On the big night of the Fundraiser, Arlington Town Hall was transformed with cows of all shapes and sizes, including one life-size sculpture to be auctioned off to the highest bidder!

The cow sculptures made at the Arlington Center for the Arts graced each table setting:

And the evening was a huge success for the Sudanese Education Fund’s Gala, commemorating the 10th anniversary of the arrival of the “Lost Boys” from the Sudan.
