Cut it


OKG7 things to do

Gazette staff
I thought my ability to cut wrapping paper in a fairly straight line was brag-worthy. Nope! Not compared to “scissor artist” Karl Johnson, who can almost instantly turn anyone — live or photographic — into a paper silhouette suitable for framing. From noon to 6 p.m. Thursday, he returns to Full Circle Bookstore, 1900 Northwest Expressway. Admission is free, but reserve a five-minute appointment for a $25 custom silhouette. Call 842-2900 or visit fullcirclebooks.com.

Well, it is, because on Friday and Saturday, the venue simultaneously presents the Cowboy Artists of America 47th Annual Sale & Exhibition. That’s a lot of Western fine art, folks, so make your reservations. Call 478-2250, ext. 219, or visit nationalcowboymuseum.org.
