are certainly to be commended for your patience in trying
to quiet little George."
"Lady," he declared,
I feel like my body has gotten totally
out of shape, so I got my doctors permission to
join a fitness club and start exercising. I decided to
take an aerobics class for seniors. I bent, twisted,
gyrated, jumped up and down, and perspired for an hour.
By the time I got my leotards on, the class was over.

Just Jake Talkin.
Jack Sours grew up in the foothills of
the Ozark Mountains where he gained an
appreciation for fine art and old style
craftsmanship. Sours began making pottery in 1972
in Crescent City, CA where he had the opportunity
to study with several potters in that area and
learned several methods of production. In the
early 1980s he returned to the Midwest and began
experimenting with the surface of his pottery,
that technique evolving into Celtic themes, a
tribute to his family heritage. In 1996 Jack
built a wood fired kiln to enhance the ancient
symbolism that is prevalent in his more
sculptural work and to provide a unique quality
in his domestic ware. This wood firing provides
glazes that can be obtained in no other way, and
never duplicated. He became very interested in
stone carving after meeting and working with Bill
Snow locally and continues to work with Snow to
evolve sculptural forms in both clay and stone.
He has exhibited in numerous local and regional
shows and was a recent winner at the artCentral
Membership Show with a ceramic sculpture. His
studio is located in Neosho, MO where he lives
and plays bluegrass music with his wife and
fellow artist, Lee Ann. Jack and Lee Ann open a
new exhibition here at Hyde House Gallery Friday
night, May 28th, beginning at 6:00 with an
artists reception in their honor. Joining
them is their daughter Suzanne Israel with her
unusual fiber hangings and textile art in the
Member Gallery. The Sours family art will be
displayed through June 13th during regular
gallery hours, Friday- Sunday, 12:00 to 5:00.
Come out and see the beautiful ceramics, stone
sculpture, weaving, organic form quilts and
textiles created by this family.
