HAGERSTOWN - Julie Cantrel said the birds, the squirrels and other forms of nature at Hagerstown's City Park give her ideas for her art.
"It's like a daily source of inspiration," she said.
Cantrel worked some of those wonders into bird collages she was selling Sunday at a family art day sponsored by the nonprofit Contemporary School of the Arts & Gallery in Hagerstown.
A few craft vendors and a few food tables were set up near the bandstand.
A variety of musicians and comedians performed.
Ron Lytle, the founder of the Hagerstown school and gallery, said the two-day event included a little pottery, a little poetry, a little photography and more.
Local companies donated hot dogs, hamburgers and chicken.
Lytle said there were 10 to 15 performers each day.
"Jesus can work it out -- if you let Him," gospel singer Shannon Watkins sang on stage on Sunday.
At one table, children decorated pottery pieces that will be ready next Saturday, after they're glazed and fired, Vicki Martin said.
