Ty Hepfer was feeling some fatherly pride on Father's Day as his son accepted kudos for artwork displayed in the Franklin County (Pa.) Art Alliance's 42nd annual show. Hepfer, of Greencastle, Pa., said he was impressed with the quality of student work shown alongside the adults' pieces. His son, Dreyphen, joined a handful of other high-schoolers in showcasing art among the more than 300 selections. While Dreyphen was being photographed with his pieces, his parents perused what else the show had to offer.

I recently wrote a column about the U.S. Constitution, and 750 words is not enough to explore the nuances of this ageless document. In my marketing class at Hagerstown Community College/Grace Academy (it's a dual credit class; students get both high school and college credit for the course), we were talking about the ethical and moral responsibilities of citizens in relation to marketing. However, talk turned to ethical and moral responsibilities of citizens when it comes to things like our rights and freedoms under the U.S. Constitution.

An art gallery once known for its floor-to-ceiling paintings and darker colorings was reopened to the public Sunday, showing off its brighter, more sparsely decorated atmosphere. The William H. Singer Jr. Memorial Gallery at the Washington County Museum of Fine Arts closed more than two years ago after snow and ice melting on the flat roof began leaking into the gallery, Museum Director Rebecca Massie Lane said. It was the quick action of Facilities Manager Mike Churchey and former museum educator Amy Hunt in discovering the initial leak during their morning rounds, in February 2011, that helped spare any of the artwork in the gallery from damage, Lane said Sunday before the gallery's reopening.

In 2009, a group of Washington County students about to make the transition into high school made a bold choice to break away from their home schools to attend a new arts school in downtown Hagerstown. To focus on their love of the arts or to start with a brand new group of kids - whatever the reason - it was the perfect choice for those 64 students. And on Thursday night, that Class of 2013 received their diplomas and graduated from the Barbara Ingram School for the Arts before a full house crowd at The Maryland Theatre.

School's out! Let the fun begin! Now kids have hours of unstructured time every day to play, relax, explore or do whatever. Except that, all too often, it doesn't take much time before hours of unstructured time turns to hours of boredom with nothing to do. Andy Iverson has some suggestions. Iverson is an artist and art teacher. His colorful, abstract paintings have been in several shows in Washington County, and the Washington County Arts Council featured Iverson's work in a solo show in 2011.
