The basic premise that the
natural order of things is ta be in chaos is
comforting at times, however, I feel Im
livin just a little closer to nature than
Id like. I suppose the most we can hope for
is "controlled chaos."
The example sometimes used is a
balloon filled with helium. The gas is
flyin around inside the balloon,
tryin to expand and get out into the
atmosphere. The balloon is the controllin
factor, bringin some order to it all and at
least providin entertainment for the child
at the other end of the string.
Even in this situation, there
is always the possibility that some other kid

Art Notes from Hyde House
By Sally Armstrong, Director of artCentral
This begins the
busy time of our year here in Carthage, as it
always seems the "holidays" begin with
the annual Maple Leaf Festival, moving into the
fall holidays, and then Christmas and New Years.
Our latest show "Cloudy" opens Friday
the 10th and we will be open here at the gallery
all weekend and then the two following weekends
during regular hours from noon until 5:00. If you
have guests over Maple Leaf, plan on making a
visit to this show a part of the weekend. We are
located at 1110 E. 13th, near the football field
where the band competition will be going on, so
walk over. I have hung 24 of Patricia
Molines most beautiful
"sky-scapes" and landscapes in both
oils and pastel. I think all those who see this
show will be pleased with the very reasonable
pricing on the pieces, and all are original art.
Some paintings are mini sized too! We thank
BEIMDIEK INSURORS for the underwriting of the
expenses of this show as well. And I hope folks
have had a chance to get by the Sirloin Stockade
and see our show there, work by Frank Young in
the Atrium Room. As you have visitors this
weekend, dont forget to give them a tour of
the beautiful new Carthage Public Library and as
you continue the "Carthage culture
tour" go by Powers Museum and see the quilt
show, and end the afternoon at the beautiful new
McCune Brooks Regional Hospital which has a truly
great and unique original art collection spread
throughout its public areas and waiting
rooms. I think this could be the only hospital
that I know of that can boast all original art to
be viewed, which includes art by Bob Tommey,
Lowell Davis, Jerry Ellis, April Leiter, Theresa
Rankin, Andy Thomas, Koral Martin, and others. It
is truly an art museum in itself and a very
impressive collection for all to enjoy!
