Organizers hoped to raise $3,000 for the food pantry. “Each bowl represents an empty bowl in someone's home,” said Holly Strayer, an art teacher.

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. -- Steady rain might have postponed the more flashy demonstrations planned for Wilson College's Arts Day, but nature compensated by creating its own art of swirling mud and carved pathways. As the gravel driveways ran with rivers of liquid earth and the drops played a calming interlude on the concrete Wednesday, students trickled into various buildings to express their rainy day blues in art. "Will the rain ever stop?" one student asked as her galoshes splashed through a large puddle.

katec@herald-mail.com Most of the large and small canvases in the exhibit of James Kline's recent oil paintings are untitled. "Cedar Field," "Romantic Landscape" and "Figure (Reclining)" are three titles that are about as descriptive as the Washington County-born artist gets. "It's just distracting," he says of the name game. A painting is never going to have the same meaning for everyone. What sings for one may not for another. As do music and literature, the visual arts have their own language, Kline says.
