Renowned silhouette artist Clay Rice will cut personal silhouettes and sign copies of his book The Lonely Shadow on Wednesday, September 15th, from 3 to 6 p.m. at Blue Bicycle Books.
Taught by his grandfather Carew, Clay Rice is a 21st century folk artist and a Lowcountry treasure. Watching him cut a child’s silhouette in five minutes has been called performance art in itself. Last year, we watched as he was actually able to capture a recognizable profile of our squirming one-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!
Personal silhouettes start at $40 for two copies. We expect slots to fill up quickly, to book an appointment, please call us at (843) 722-2666.
Blue Bicycle Books is located at 420 King Street.
