I grew up hearin that padlocks were only
made ta keep the honest guy out.
I found that out when I lost the key to
my padlock I had on my gym basket. It wasnt
some little cheap padlock either. It was a great
big Master, the bulletproof kind.
I went to the janitor and
figured hed have ta saw up the basket or
some other major endeavor to get my stuff out. He
grabbed a hammer and headed for the locker room.
He looked over the situation,
then took the hammer and whack! The lock popped
open. I couldnt believe it. This was the
lock my dad had used to secure the back door of
his business. I guess if someone wants ta take
somethin bad enough, theyll get the
job done. I was glad the janitor was one of the

Art Notes from Hyde House
By Sally Armstrong, Director of artCentral
These cooler days have been
kind to us at the Hyde House, as we have enjoyed
the first week of childrens artCamp in
relative comfort, and the kids have enjoyed
having their lunches and break time on the
grounds, under the trees. Even one class, where
the kids made personal "thrones and
chairs" from corrugated cardboard, painted
and decorated, was held at the long tables in
shade near the Pottery House. Classes have gone
well, and we have seen 70 participants this first
week. Classes next week are in some cases still
open if you have not had the opportunity to sign
up a child.
We are pleased to announce the
second in the series of artists workshops
held here at the Hyde House, by Michael Bell,
this one entitled "PRICING YOUR WORK".
If you are an artist and have pondered this most
difficult question, and we all have, come out on
August 7th at 6:30 and hear what Michael has to
present on this subject. A third generation
Joplin native, Michael is currently the curator
of VISUAL ART ACCESS. Founded in 1987, VAA has
taught career self-management with more than 1500
artists individually nationwide, and hundreds
more in large groups from New York to California.
Mr. Bell worked in art museums for more than 30
years, and is a qualified appraiser of
contemporary and fine arts and crafts. Michael
has been featured at SPIVA FOR THE ARTS in
similar formats. There will be no charge for
Members, a $10.00 charge for non-members. Call
417 358 4404 for more information.
One week remains for the
exhibit of the fine group of rural oil paintings
done by Wisconsin artist Cathy Martin, and if you
have not come by, we are here everyday next week.
Due to artCamp being in session, the gallery is
open daily from 10:00. Daughter Lindsey
Martins work is featured in the Member
Gallery, and Lindseys work will move in
early August, briefly, to the Atrium Gallery,
where it will remain hanging through the
remainder of August. We thank these women for the
gift of this beautiful show!
