Rose accompanied her husband Tom to his annual
checkup. While Tom was getting dressed, the doctor came
out and said to Rose, "I dont like the way he
looks." "Neither do I," she said.
"But hes handy around the house."
There was this Antartian that wanted to
take up a new winter hobby. She went to the library and
started studying all about ice fishing. Finally, she went
out on the ice, set up all her stuff, and sat down. All
of a sudden, a bellowing voice from above said there are
no fish under the ice". Startled, she got up and
moved to a different spot. Right as she began to sit
down, the voice from above spoke again. There are no fish
under the ice" Frustrated, she got up and walked a
long ways away onto a new patch of ice. She sat down and
set up all of her gear. Once again, the voice spoke.
There are no fish under the ice". Now the Antartian
was very mad. "God, is that you? she asked.
"No!, it is the manager of the ice skating
rink" the voice replied

ART NOTES from Hyde House
by Sally Armstrong,
Director of artCentral
It is encouraging to me that we
are catching up a bit here in our Carthage area
with some of the surrounding cities in the
presentation of fine art. Just last year, our
sister city of Joplin opened a new display
gallery called " Rose Gallery" in the
old Hanks Furniture building on north
Rangeline. This beautiful gallery is operated by
Tricia Courtney, long time art director of the
GLOBE and fine artist in her own right, and is
creatively displaying the multi-media work of
many of our wonderful area artists. Most
recently, April Davis has moved her "art
creation" to Neosho, where she has opened
another new gallery called "The Grotto Fine
Art Gallery", a very interesting space on
the square displaying many Medias of, again, many
of our wonderful area artists. Some of the same
local artists exhibiting in both of these new
galleries remain as well in our own Carthage
based galleries, "Koka Gallery",
operated by Koral Martin just off the Carthage
square on Main, and "Cherrys
Gallery" on Howard, also just off the square
in Carthage. With the additions of display
galleries comes some additional exhibitions, and
we were thrilled with the success of Cherry
Babcock and her "Plein Aire Paint-Out"
last fall, in conjunction with Maple Leaf Week,
which brought new artists to Carthage for two
days of painting and culminated with the most
successful sale of their work at the Historic
Phelps House. This event will occur again in
2011, bigger and better, and artCentral will be
involved in its presentation. I have been meeting
now with a joint planning committee in Carthage
to execute the first "Carthage Art
Walk" to occur April 15th on the Carthage
square, when multiple area artists will display
their work in many business and office venues
"after hours" and the public will be
invited to attend, with additional activities the
next day. We are catching up in "the fine
arts" and its about time Id say!
I hope our community will all come out to support
this new endeavor in the spring--- stay tuned for
