Art gallery hosts annual Clothesline Fest
Rochester, N.Y. Saturdays rain didnt stop the Memorial Art Gallery from hosting its annual Clothesline Art Festival.
Creativity was on display, courtesy of 430 artists.
The event is a fundraiser for the gallery. Joe Carney, its director of advancement, said the festival has become a tradition for many vendors, several of whom have been coming for decades since it began in 1957.
The festival has really grown from a smaller group of artists in the Rochester region to across New York state, he said. I think the newness (helps), but also coming back to see people, familiar faces theyve seen for many, many years.
