Friends gathered Wednesday for “An Evening in the Neighborhood” at Latrobe Country Club.

The fifth annual auction event benefited Latrobe Art Center, which this year has touched the lives of 1,600 people by helping them with development of self-expression, creativity, fine motor skills and confidence.

Center director Gabi Nastuck pointed out the decorations throughout the reception area, which were papier-mache sculptures created by her art club students at Christ the Divine Teacher School. Each sculpture identified the young artist, and why he or she liked art.

“Tonight, when you are bidding on the auction items, please remember that art matters the same way language matters … or the way breathing matters,” Nastuck said. “It is a fundamental component of what makes us uniquely human.”

The evening ended with Mark Ferry auctioning some spectacular pieces, such a lithograph of “The Critic,” signed by Norman Rockwell.

Arnold and Kit Palmer donated a signed print of “Gold Legends” for the auction, and Kit was honorary co-chairwoman of the event with Nancy Rogers Crozier.

Seen: Daniel Crozier, Ernie and Georgia Teppert, Ron and Jane McKenzie, Barbara Flock, Sharen Traynor, Lou and Joan DeRose, David and Johnette DeRose, Diana Kreiling, Bob and Arlene Kendra, Amy Baldonieri, Joe Bellack, Chris Okonak, Peg Panasiti, John and Ginnie Wandrisco, Jim and Betty Ann McHugh, Bernie and Dolly Lynch, Bernie Jr. and Connie Lynch, Anthony DiVittis, John Anspach, Theresa Rusbosin, Bill Paxton, Dr. Wylie and Marilyn Overly, Dr. John and Dorris Parker and Norma Samide.
