Clay Rice, grandson of America’s modern master of silhouette art Carew Rice, has made quite a name for himself as a silhouette artist and storyteller. Over the 32 years that he has been working, he has made more than 900,000 silhouettes. On July 30, Rice will spend the morning making silhouettes for children at Marigolds in Summerville. Each portrait takes less than five minutes, thanks to Rice’s skilled hands. Currently living on Isle of Palms, Rice comes to Marigolds every summer and sometimes in the winter to do children’s silhouettes. “It’s a really popular event and a lot of fun,” says Marigolds’ Laura Liady. “He’s very easygoing and extremely talented.” Rice’s work is on permanent display at the S.C. State Museum and has been featured in Country Living, the Washington Times, and Cookie Magazine and on Army Wives. His book, The Lonely Shadow, was a gold medal Ippy Award Winner for Best Children’s Picture Book in 2010. As for the event at Marigolds, you have to reserve a spot, and it’s filling up fast, so make sure to sign up if you’re interested.
