Award-winning artist and children's book author Clay Rice will cut silhouette portraits for the public from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. June 8 at The Greenery's Antiques and Garden Collectibles Shop, 960 William Hilton Parkway, Hilton Head Island.

Silhouette artistry and storytelling is a Rice family tradition spanning three generations and two artists, including Clay's grandfather, Carew Rice. Clay Rice uses scissors to create a silhouette portrait in a matter of moments. In his 32-year career, Rice has created more than 900,000 silhouettes.

At 2 p.m., Rice will perform a reading and musical performance from his children's books. His books, "The Lonely Shadow" and "Mama Let's Make a Moon," will be available for purchase.

Packages for silhouette portraits begin at $42.
