Ringing of Kaskaskia bell marks tradition KASKASKIA — The public is invited to join in a 234-year-old tradition next week, when Fourth of July event organizers celebrate the holiday by ringing the “Liberty Bell of the West” at 12:30 p.m. Wednesday, July 4. The ceremonious ringing marks its 43rd anniversary this year, but the history and significance of the act extends much further back into history. On July 4, 1778, the bell at Kaskaskia was rung after George Rogers Clark and his troops occupied the fort there during the Revolutionary War. The bell was given to the church in Kaskaskia by King Louis XV of France in 1741, making it 11 years older than Philadelphia’s Liberty Bell. The bell, and Kaskaskia by proxy, was recently featured on the History Channel’s “How the States Got Their Shapes.” The Chester Municipal Band, directed by Steve Colonel, will perform patriotic music. Local Boy and Girl Scouts, as well as French Marines from Fort de Chartres, will also participate in the event. Visitors are asked to bring lawn chairs. — Adam Testa

SIU to host historic art display University Museum Reception Meet-and-greet with artists, music, food and wine; 4-7 p.m. Friday, June 29; University Museum, Faner Hall, SIUC BY ADAM TESTA THE SOUTHERN

CARBONDALE — Mike Chervinko first learned of petroglyphs — prehistoric rock art — hidden throughout the Southern Illinois landscape while he was in college. The promise of these hidden treasures held his interest for a while, but eventually, that and his desire to learn

photography faded. About two and a half years ago, though, he caught the bug again and found himself wanting to search out the region’s ancient art. Now, he’s embarked on that quest and documented more than 30 petroglyphs in Jackson County. He uses an antique-style camera — “it’s twice as old as I am,” he jokes — and a dark room to capture the images in as authentic of a light as possible. His travels take him deep into the Shawnee National Forest, sometimes to places with no traces of recent human exploration. He crosses some rugged terrain and has to use a

Page 4 Thursday, June 28, 2012 FLIPSIDE

compass to ensure he doesn’t become completely lost in the confines of the woods. “There really aren’t any directions or signs to these places,” he said. “It’s not easy. I’ve had a few almost panic moments with some of these.” But the fruits of his labor are a magnificent collection of detailed photographs and imagery. Through his work, people can experience and see the pre-historic remnants of art without braving the conditions of nature. Chervinko’s work will be on display at the University Museum at SIU Carbondale through the summer and into the fall semester. He will also be taking part in a reception for all the summer exhibits from 4-7 p.m. Friday, June 29. The museum will be open regular hours until Aug. 3 and then by appointment until the start of the fall semester.

Southern Illinois, SIUC anthropologists Phillip Dark and Joel Maring traveled to another part of the world to study and document indigenous populations of what is now Papua New Guinea. The duo took photographs and brought back artifacts telling the story of the Kilenge. Their collections are now on display in an exhibit curated by Lori Huffman, the museum’s curator of collections, and graduate student Kristi Lueker. A third exhibit this summer featuring photography is “Road Trips,” highlighting the works of Susie Phillips of Murphysboro. Most of her photos on display were taken on drives through Southern Illinois, but some extend to other parts of the country, as well. She features a diversity of subjects and techniques in her photos, ranging from close-up shots of flowers to wide-angle scenes of nature and the world around us. Promoting Two Carterville artists, local artists Bea Phillips and Steven Chervinko is only one of Martin, come together for several local artists a joint exhibit, “Stories in showcasing their works at Fiber and Wood.” Martin the University Museum contributed several of his this summer, creating a intricate wood carvings, wide array of exhibits most of which double as featuring everything from small boxes or storage photography to units, though one can’t woodcarving to quilting. always tell at first glance. “In the summer, we try Many of the words feature to showcase both local and hidden compartments that national shows,” said pull out of the base. museum director Dona Phillips contributed a Bachman. “Above all, we number of wall-hanging have so much talent in the fiber quilts that depict a area.

Wood pieces, including this one named ‘Fish,’ are on display at University Museum in Carbondale.

“Almost all of them have stories behind them,” Bachman said. “Sometimes they’re very personal; other times they’re more pictorial.” Another exhibit on display features items from the Mitchell Collection of Small Metal Treasures. Polly WinklerMitchell’s mother collected many metal miniatures and passed them on to her daughter. Polly and her husband Marion Mitchell have added to the collection through the years and have contributed some of them to the summer programs at the museum. The items feature everything from metal art to an old-time stapler, mixing the artistic with the utilitarian. The final locally coordinated showcase exhibit is called, “Sensation, Revelation” and features art by a number of different pieces of artwork that explore the themes and variations of color. Curated by Education Director Bob DeHoet, the exhibit features works from the museum’s permanent collection by Josef Albers, Richard Anuszkiewicz, Patrick Caulfield, Patrick Heron, John Hoyland, Patrick Hughes, Kenneth Martin and Victor Vasarely. “It’s not just art that is colorful but artists who

are consciously studying the effects of color,” Bachman said.

History through art Joining the displays of local artists’ work will be an exhibit that has been seen across the country. “American Spirit” features selections from the Wells Fargo corporate art collection. Wells Fargo agents in any part of the United States can put in a request for the exhibit to be brought to their area. Barbara Blacklock, a Carbondale-based adviser with the company, helped bring it to the University Museum. The exhibit includes a series of paintings and artwork by different artists, including George Catlin, George Caleb Bingham, Roy Lichtenstein, Fritz Scholder and Andy Warhol. Together, the different images look at the progression of American life and history, with works focused on the world wars, women’s suffrage and politics. “It’s almost a survey of American history,” Bachman said. “A lot of it was picked because it has connections to the Midwest.” 618-351-5031










Montgomery Gentry, Heart Jeff Batson set to play at three local venues headed to Walker’s Bluff COUNTRY

CARTERVILLE — Already known for its fine dining and unique atmosphere, Walker’s Bluff is quickly establishing a reputation as a top-tier concert venue, as well. The winery has hosted performances from Charlie Daniels and Sheryl Crow in recent weeks and will welcome two big-name musical duos later this year. Country music stars Montgomery Gentry will perform on Saturday, July 21, and rock duet Heart will take the stage Sept. 16. Both concerts will be at the Legends Amphitheatre. Eddie Montgomery and Troy Gentry arrived on the national music scene in 1999 with the single “Hillbilly Shoes,” launching a career that would take them to the top of the industry. They contribute their success to the fact that no matter how famous they’ve gotten or how many records they’ve sold, they remain the same Kentucky boys they were when they started. “We are blue-collar workers and we lived the songs that we sing,” Gentry said on the band’s website. “Because of that, our fans are able to make the connection, and when they hear our songs, they know

we are singing with passion and we know what we are talking about.” The duo has released 14 Top 10 singles, including five No. 1 tracks: “Something to be Proud Of,” “If You Ever Stop Loving Me,” “Lucky Man,” “Back When I Knew It All” and “Roll with Me.” They recently released their latest album, Rebels on the Run.” Sisters Ann and Nancy Wilson made their presence felt on the national entertainment scene in the 1970s with hits like “Crazy on You,” “Magic Man,” “Barracuda” and others, as they proved to be frontrunners in the industry by not only performing rock songs but also writing their own material. Heart has sold 35 million album through their career and produced songs used in several movies and television series, including “Jerry McGuire” and “Almost Famous,” according to the band’s website. Tickets for Montgomery Gentry are $45 or $100 for VIP admission. Heart tickets are $60 or $125 for VIP. Both are on sale now at www.southerntickets

next level.” The 45-year-old Batson is an outstanding vocalist and lists Willie Nelson, Alabama and Ronnie Milsap as influences, along with rockers John Mellencamp and Jon Bon Jovi. He had a huge following in the Metro East area before migrating south. He appeared on “Prime Time Country” on cable’s TNN and was a national finalist in the Jim Beam Country Showdown. On several occasions, he served as lead vocalist for popular local band Jackson Junction, filling in for an absent Dave Clark or Lance Miller, who is a close friend in Nashville. A veteran performer, Batson has worked as an opening act for major stars like Hank Williams Jr., Keith Urban and Collin Raye. Batson will perform three local dates as an acoustic duo, with accompaniment provided by songwriting associate Eric Haines. “I’ve been waiting for a long time for the opportunity to get back up in Southern Illinois to play,” he said. “There are a lot of new songs I want

sing and see how they are received. I’ve got family in the Cobden area. This is really going to be exciting for me and hopefully the fans. I haven’t been back home in a long time.” One of the highlights of Batson’s lengthy career occurred just last year when he performed at the World Police & Fire Games in New York City. He was invited to the international competition to sing “Don’t Call Me a Hero,” a tune he penned as a tribute to firefighters. Bryna recorded “Hometown Heroes,” another song written by Batson. It was adopted as the theme song for the Air Guard and was used in a national campaign, eventually airing on Monday Night Football. A die-hard St. Louis baseball fan, Batson penned “That’s a Winner” as a tribute to the late Jack Buck. The song is frequently played on KMOX radio and at Busch Stadium. VINCE HOFFARD can be
