ROCHESTER, N.Y. — Huge crowds showed up for the 66th annual Clothesline Festival, a fundraiser for the Memorial Art Gallery.

Hundreds of people got out in the sun and heat on Saturday, then the rain on Sunday to support local artists and see live demos.

Plenty of them enjoyed the museum as well. We had the chance to watch one of the artists hard at work.

“It’s very inspiring and I enjoy people watching and seeing all the other artists and their artwork. It’s very inspiring and it’s fun,” said artist Laura Osborne.

She was one of 300 artists to show off work at the festival.
