Renowned silhouette artist Clay Rice returns to Blue Bicycle Books, Sun., Feb. 5, 1 – 3 pm to cut children’s silhouettes and sign his latest books, The Stick and Ants ‘n’ Uncles (Familius, hb, $17).
Taught by his grandfather, Carew Rice, Clay is a 21st-century folk artist and a Lowcountry treasure. Cutting a child’s silhouette in under five minutes is a performance in itself. You’ll be amazed when he captures a recognizable profile of your squirming two-year-old in less time than it takes to get her shoes on. His national touring schedule keeps him on the road often, cutting more than 10,000 children’s silhouettes a year, so events back home in Charleston are rare!
