Thanks to my #TheHungerford neighbors, Airigami, for providing this video in their newsletter. This is going to sound weird, but it was waaay more interesting than I anticipated! I hope you’ll take a look, then pop <– (get it!?) over to their website. They have tons of photos and videos. Most are balloon related but I never tire of watching this one, Oreogami.

What a wonderful Democrat & Chronicle article on Hungerford neighbor Sabra Wood’s annual event!
Donating money to good causes is nice, says Cat Clay owner/artist Sabra Wood. “But it’s not very rewarding, so I love getting personally involved.”
That’s why she started Sample Soap, a nonprofit that collects personal care items and distributes them to the neediest groups in Rochester.
It’s also why she launched Winter Warmth, a Soup(er) Benefit. The event is held every January in Wood’s Hungerford Building studio, and 100 percent of the proceeds go to Healthy Sisters Soup & Bean Works, a nonprofit that helps women in recovery.
“Let’s face it, January is a dead month,” she says. “This is a wonderful way to pause, take stock and kick of the New Year.”
For $20, guests get ceramic bowls handcrafted and donated by local artists — including Wood, Richard Aerni, Carolyn Dilcher-Stutz (whose work is pictured) and Juliana Drumheller, among others — packages of soup mix from Healthy Sisters, and appetizers and desserts to graze on.
Winter Warmth runs from 5 to 7 p.m. Friday, Jan. 8, in Suite 242 of the Hungerford Building, 1115 E. Main St. (door 2 by the loading docks). Parking is available at the Hungerford, but don’t park in front of Happy Feet, which is a tow-away zone. Parking also is available at Visions Credit Union across Main Street and at Greenovation.
Last year, 120 bowls were sold at the event, and at least that many will be available this year, Wood says.

The five resident artists of suite 240 at The Hungerford are pleased to present their November 6 First Friday guest artist, mixed media artist Karen Rothfuss. She lives in Waterloo, NY and is eager to share her colorful fabric coil bowls and personality filled papier mache birds.
The Hungerford is 5 stories of open studios & shops, located at 1115 E Main Street, Rochester, NY 14609. It is open to the public First Fridays, 6-9pm, Second Saturdays, 10am-3pm.
The 5 artists sharing suite 240 sell decorative and functional handmade pieces in a variety of media, including fused glass wind chimes and dishes, fabric accessories, hand stitched and folded paper and metalsmith jewelry.
I have a colorful shop with 4 artist friends at The Hungerford, in suite 240. It’s an old factory, which was used to make syrup, now turned into 5 floors of artist studios and businesses. Some studios are the workplaces of artists and are open regular hours. Some, like our shop, are retail spaces only. We’re open First Fridays, Second Saturdays and by appointment 7 days/week.
My partners in art are:
I’m a paper artist, specializing in hand stitched designs, designed on a computer. I make framed art, notepads, paper jewelry and greeting cards. I’ve started dabbling in Origami and have big flowers made from the pages of church hymnals.
Art isn’t Dead, it’s Undead.
Friday & Saturday night.
Explore a dozen delightfully-disturbing studios at the Hungerford including The Night Gallery, a creepy cool group show, costume contest, and studio raffles!
Donate toiletries for Sample Soap. Even the undead like to look good & smell good!
