Renowned silhouette artist, musician, storyteller and author Clay Rice invites you to “come on down” to Daniel Island for a family celebration of historic proportions. Mr. Rice will bring his talents to the Daniel Island Club on Thursday, June 6 in a special community event presented by the Daniel Island Historical Society (DIHS) and the Daniel Island Community Fund (DICF). Doors open at 6:45 p.m., and the program begins at 7 p.m.
Described by author Pat Conroy as a “great talent who combines soul and passion,” Clay Rice’s prized silhouettes are collected worldwide. He estimates he has cut some 900,000 silhouettes since starting his career, inspired by his grandfather Carew Rice, some 30 years ago. A native of Charleston, Mr. Rice has wonderful memories of spending time as a young boy at the family home in Wiggins, S.C., a place he calls “the heart of the Lowcountry.” He is also an accomplished author whose work has earned him a Moonbeam Children’s Book Award and an IPPY Award for Children’s Book of the Year. In addition to offering up his musical and storytelling talents, Clay will cut silhouettes for interested audience members for $42 each after the show. He will also be available to sign copies of his book and CDs (cash or check only).
