BERKELEY SPRINGS, W.Va. - Mary Klotz has been coming to Morgan County for 45 years - since she was 10 years old. There are certain things that mean Morgan County to her, like clusters of mailboxes - old-fashioned mailboxes, not those big shiny stainless steel boxes with cubby holes in new developments like one where she used to live. Klotz, 55, of Frederick, Md., likes those mailbox clusters so much she recently finished a painting of the subject. It will be part of "Paint Morgan County," an exhibit she's guest-curating at the Ice House.

marlob@herald-mail.com Armed only with a black-and-white photograph and her own childhood memories of a beloved church building, Marjorie Tressler set out to create a painting worthy to hang in the sanctuary of St. Andrew's United Methodist Church on Maryland Avenue. But more than just a static painting of a building, Tressler wanted her work to reflect her belief that a church is the people who come together to worship Jesus Christ. And accomplish that she did, as congregation leaders and members commented recently on the beauty and spirituality of the 5-by-7-foot gilt-framed oil painting that graces the back wall of the church.

Hobbyist displays modeling, painting talents WAYNESBORO, Pa. - The Gen. Jackson is John Sauder's favorite. Sauder and his wife Thelma took a cruise on the Nashville paddle wheeler, so he felt he had to build a model of it for himself. The Gen. Jackson was crafted in the cellar of Sauder's pre-Civil War house in the 100 block of West Main Street in Waynesboro. It's confined, crowded and jammed with hand tools, power tools, heater ducts, overhead plumbing, a furnace and a low ceiling.

The red Dodge Dart is still in Roy Steele's acrylic painting, but the spectators - in the painting and at the art exhibit - know it's got some speed because of the pillows of white smoke coming out of the muscle car's exhaust pipe as it races down a dragway strip. Steele, 51, of Hagerstown, said he named the large canvas work “The Sleeper” because the Dodge's speed is a surprise. For the painting, Steele picked up the Washington County Arts Council's award Sunday at the Washington County Museum of Fine Arts in Hagerstown's City Park.

As I have promised, during this sesquicentennial period commemorating the American Civil War, here is another column, this one relating to events from March through September 1862. The Civil War was actually fought in two separate theaters of war; one in the West and one here in the East. Most of us from this area (the mid-Atlantic) know a lot about the war as it took place in Pennsylvania, Maryland and Virginia and maybe a little about North and South Carolina's involvement. Yet a thousand miles away from the Union Capitol in Washington and nearly a similar distance from the Confederate Capitol in Richmond, Va., numerous battles were fought and strategy formulated in states like Kentucky, Tennessee, Mississippi, Alabama, Texas and Georgia.

The Mountain Man is gone. After more than 40 years, the image of a West Virginia blacksmith hammering on an anvil that graced the sign promoting the Mountain Heritage Arts & Crafts Festival has been replaced by a new image showing an impressionistic mountain range. ”We wanted to update things a little bit, get a new look,” said Heather Morgan McIntyre, executive director of the Jefferson County Chamber of Commerce which has been sponsoring the festival for 41 years. The event attracts about 7,000 patrons to a large vacant field near Harpers Ferry every June and September, McIntyre said.
