Artists in Residence"

The Clinton Arts Council, Inc. is excited to announce there will be three artists in residence this year for the enjoyment of all those who stop by the "Ike" Parker Memorial Fine Arts Show. One artist each day of the show will be set up in the DeLozier Little Theatre side of the Building.

On Thursday, July 1, Shirley Bryan will be demonstrating her water color techniques from 2:00 until 6:00  p.m. Shirley's passion has always been painting horses. She studied art at the Kansas City Art Institute and was employed by Hallmark Cards in the art department. However, she was unable to pursue her passion.

In 1971, she joined Mid-Missouri Artists and realized her goal of painting horses, horses and horses. Over the years her subject matter has included all animals, flowers, still life and scenery. Yet horses remain her favorite. Her main medias are watercolor and oil. Shirley and her husband Dale L. Bryan live on a farm north of Chilhowee.

Shirley says, "Drawing and painting are such a part of me that I feel compelled to pursue them. It makes me happy and hopefully it affects others the same way."

James L. Williams will be the Artist in Residence on Friday, July 2, from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Mr. Williams has been a creator of fine stained glass images since 1984. He took a class and was surprised when he sold a lamb he had created. Owing in part to his Cherokee Heritage, he began specializing in Indian artwork around 1990, shortly before the Kevin Costner film Dances with Wolves triggered the nation's awareness of Indian culture. Mr. Williams grew up absorbing Indian lore and legend, especially that of the Plains tribes such as the Sioux and the Crow.

Mr. Williams enlisted in the Army shortly after graduation from high school in 1968 and spent several years on active duty, primarily in Germany and Japan. In 1999, Mr. Williams was a Gold Medal Winner Best of Show at the National Veterans' Creative Arts Festival in Grand Junction, Colorado. "I think of myself as a visionary rather than an artist," said Williams. His work is on display at his "Blue Horses Studio" outside of Warsaw,

Rita Hutchison will be demonstrating oil techniques on Saturday, July 3 from 11:00  a.m. to 4:00  p.m.

Rita began her career in 1972 when a neighbor took her to meet a small group of painters. She had retired after 15 years with General Motors and had extra time on her hands. Rita began teaching in 1984 and is still conducting classes in Grain Valley. Rita has attended numerous workshops and different classes on oils, drawing and portraits, including life classes at U.M.K.C.

She saw Bob Byerley's art and fell in love with realism. She knew oils were her passion and came up with the name "Realistic by Rita". She also does some acrylics and watercolors. Rita hopes to paint and teach many more years. She has won numerous awards over the years.

Rita says, "I love arts shows because they encourage people to try their hand at it. You just have to have the desire and patience; and :ihe rewards are many."

Henry County Museum

The Henry County Museum serves as an anchor for Clinton's historic square, and Olde Glory Days is no exception. This year, the museum celebrates the community's heritage and our country's freedom with several activities.

The Museum Annex, just west of the Anheuser-Busch Building, will have a display of Henry County Medical History. Displays and exhibits from the "country doctor" to Clinton's current 9-1-1 Trauma Emergency Center.

On the Museum parking lot on Saturday, July 2, after the parade, will be a working engine, that was made here in Clinton in 1899 by the Industrial Iron Works. It was owned and operated by Hugh Burton and his son Keith. Another feature on the parking lot will be a 1909 Sears and Robuck Company car. Both will be in the parade.

In the Homestead, just east of the parking lot, the Historical Society will be featuring several Olde Tyme Craft demonstrations such as wood carving, rug hooking, spinning, weaving, basket-making, bead making, quilting, tatting ana painting on various materials and so much more.

Clinton's local craftsmen are proud of their American Heritage, and proudly present their crafts that were popular yesterday and still are today.

The Missouri Conservation Department will be demonstrating methods of hunting and treatment of animal pelts. These exhibits will be accompanied by the music of the Dulcimer Music group from Warrensburg.

Highlights include Mattson & Weaver, folk singers who will perform for the third year running on Saturday, July 3, from noon to 3 p.m.

The Museum welcomes you to stroll through the exhibits and the history, seeing life as our forefathers lived while enjoying our present day air conditioning.

The Henry County Museum is located at Washington and Franklin, on the Northwest corner of the Historic Square District. It comprises four major sections:

The DeLozier Building, which will be home to the Ike Parker Fine Arts Show and the Youth Fine Art Show during Olde Glory Days.
The Anheuser-Busch Building, which holds the museum's main collections.
The Annex and Village, which will be home to the Old Time Medicine Exhibit.
The Homestead, which includes a restored Dog-Trot log cabin, barn, and other exhibits.

Dorman House

The Dorman House, a restored Civil War-era home within walking distance of the square, will be open to the public during Olde Glory Days. Visitors can enjoy free tours from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Friday, July 2, and from noon to 4 p.m. on Saturday, July 3.

Owned by Clinton Main Street, Inc., the Dorman House was purchased in 1996 to avoid demolition. Restoration has taken seven years and has been accomplished with nearly all volunteers, with special thanks to Clint and Darlene Glaspy. The house first opened to the public in May 2003. Located at the corner of Water and Franklin Street, the home is rich with history from the area and is filled with many artifacts and documents found in the house that have been saved and preserved.

Plan to visit the Dorman House during Olde Glory Days this year and sample our community's heritage.

Sunday Community Worship Service

A tradition for several years, the Sunday morning community worship service continues this year, sponsored by the Clinton Ministerial Alliance. The service begins at 7:15 a.m. on the Courthouse lawn. Everyone is invited and encouraged to bring a lawn chair to enjoy this time of fellowship and reflection. Following the service, the Holy Rosary Knights of Columbus will serve biscuits and gravy for all those with an appetite. Join us for a unique worship experience.

The Lumber Jills

The wood chips and sawdust fly as Timber Tinas, World Champion Lumber Jills, get their show (and the logs) rolling. Sponsored by the folks at Cook Tractor Company, the Lumber Jills are set to perform three times daily on Thursday, Friday and Saturday across from the Henry County Museum off the northwest corner of the square.

The action includes the Stihl Power Hot Saw Race, Jill-and-Jill crosscut sawing, underhand chopping, log rolling and Stihl chainsaw carving. The Jilts' fast pace and unique handiwork keep you on the edge of your seat and promise an exciting experience every time.

"Jay & Leslie's Laughing Matters"

The Henry County Library hosts "Jay & Leslie's Laughing Matters" for three special shows during Olde Glory Days. Jay and Leslie will ride on the library's float in the Grand Parade on Saturday morning and then offer their audiences juggling, mime, magic and other nonsense later that afternoon. Show times are 1 p.m., 2:30 p.m. and 4 p.m. in the Friends Room. Take a break from the heat and come laugh yourself silly in the cool comfort of the library.

World Premiere Play

All the proceeds beyond the $1,000 go to support the worthwhile activities of S.T.A.R.T. Interact.
