Renowned ceramic artist Marilee Hall, director of Cookeville's premier art studio and gallery tour, the ART Prowl, presents Beth Smith, marketing and program manager at TTU's Appalachian Center for Craft, with a donation to this year's Bacchanal.

Hall's signature, one-of-a-kind teapot forms are always a popular item during the annual live auction of art and fine craft.

Bacchanal 2010 is scheduled for Sunday, Oct. 24, from 1 to 5 p.m. at Spankies Restaurant in Cookeville. Reservations are $40 per person until Friday, Oct. 22, and $50 at the door.
