Patrons waiting to enter the Artisans at the Depot event.

Last semester, ceramics and graphic design students from two University of Arkansas art classes joined forces with a top local culinary team to create an unforgettable kiln-to-table dining experience for Northwest Arkansas art and food aficionados alike.

The fundraising event — Artisans at the Depot: A Kiln to Table Experience — featured four gourmet courses prepared by Chef Patrick Lane at Arsaga's at The Depot.

And, in a fun twist, all delicacies were served on hand-crafted, brand-new tableware created by Department of Art students from the J. William Fulbright College of Arts and Sciences.

Featured here are photos of the event from Novo Studio.
