Mrs. J. A. Davis
Mrs. J. A. Davis has been quite sick
for several days of pneumonia at her home at the corner
of Fulton and Sixth streets. Her condition yesterday
afternoon became so serious that it was thought that she
could not live through the night. Her sons, Chris, who is
a street railway conductor in St. Louis, and Al, of
Kansas City, were telegraphed for. The former arrived
this morning and the latter is expected this evening.
Mrs. Davis is reported better today.

NOTES from Hyde House
by Sally Armstrong,
Director of artCentral
What a wonderful expression of
interest and support we received at Hyde House
Gallery this past Sunday afternoon! There were a
large number of artists, members, and guests
present throughout the afternoon when we opened
the "5X5 Silent Art Auction" for the
first day, to bidding. Thirty of our guests chose
to bid upon nearly all of the 73 entries that
were displayed, and this is a good start. I
welcomed a group of those special guests who were
invited to attend and be recognized as the first
"25 Founders of artCentral" and among
these attending were Sandy Higgins, Michelle
Newton-Hansford, Janet Ott, Jim Bracht, and Jerry
Ellis of Carthage, and Chris Weber of Monett.
Each of these had varied but important roles in
the origins of our organization, artCentral. Not
present but recognized were Bill Snow, Perry
Fleming, Elliott Hunter, Don Knost and Susan
Steen-Knost, Jennifer Morris, Shelia Buchallew,
Bob Fasken, Lowell Davis, Dr.& Mrs. W.C.
Dandridge, Robin Putnam and Irene VanGilder.
Currently out of the country are honorees Tom
Simpson and Sam Butcher, and honored posthumously
were Wendy Christensen, Susan Humber & Joan
Hudkins. Lastly and most importantly, Bob Tommey
was honored as the first founder, who actually
began the idea of a fine art organization in
Carthage and dedicated a number of years to that
endeavor. We thank these as well as an even
larger group who have worked tirelessly since
those early years to keep artCentral going and
growing. Please remember that you can participate
either by bidding on or just viewing our current
exhibition again Friday, Saturday, and Sunday
from noon until 5:00. This is a busy weekend in
Carthage, but add this show to your list of
events and you will be glad that you did!
