WAYNESBORO, Pa. - The work of 38 local artists is on display this weekend at the 54th annual Clothesline Art Exhibit of the Waynesboro Studio Club.

Held for the first time at the Church of the Brethren in Waynesboro, the show outgrew its former site at the Oller House, according to Evie Cook, president of the Studio Club.

Most of the art is for sale.

Best of Show honors went to a portrait titled "Terra," painted by Betty Koontz of Fayetteville, Pa.

The Betty Holladay Memorial Award is given each year for a watercolor landscape of outstanding merit. Clyde Roberts, an art instructor at The Mansion House in Hagerstown, received the award for "Milking Time."


Students from Waynesboro Area Senior High School entered several works.

"Kids have tremendous imaginations," Cook said. "There are some really unique paintings."

Three of the student artists received cash awards from the Studio Club on the recommendation of their art instructors. Most Improved Senior was Justin Fogle, Outstanding Senior Artist went to Hannah Schuler and Contributing the Most was Tyler Oyler.

Judges for the clothesline show were Hans Paul Guerin and Beth Ann deLoiselle of Baltimore.
