Artists sell handicrafts via 'Snowflake Showcase' exhibit in Hempfield
This holiday season, find one-of-a-kind gifts at Greensburg Art Center and the Rowe Gallery on Todd School Road in Hempfield.
“Snowflake Showcase” features jewelry, ceramics, textiles, woodwork and paintings created by regional artists for sale through Dec. 22, when a closing reception with free gift wrapping will be held.
At the opening on Nov. 18, show chairwoman Cathy Rosensteel said the selection constantly changes as new items are brought in to replace what has been sold.
Artists are charged just 25 percent commission on what they sell.
“It's art of our people, by our people, for our people,” Rosensteel said.
For an investment of $10, Rosensteel teaches “Where to Begin,” a class that provides all materials, lasts six to eight weeks and encourages students to explore drawing, watercolors and oils.
“They get to try everything but pastels,” she said.
The next show at the center will open Jan. 22 with a Mardi Gras-themed reception.
For more information about the show or the center, call 724-837-6791.
Show committee members: Helen Thorne, Cheryl Kirsch, Tina Blake, Renie Pollock and Sue Kiren.
Seen: Sherry Anderson, Betty Hammer, Judy Robertson, Kay Rowe, Bill and Bonnie Hoffman, Barbara Ferrier, Bill and Peg Panasiti, Sue Pollins, Alan and Betty Reese, Arlene Kendra, Sue Donofrio, Bob and Pat Majcher, Sue White, Carolyn Falcon, Suzanne Kapusta and Wendell Keck.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
