Metal fiber sculptor Atticus Adams shared some of his childhood with visitors to the June 8 Art on Tap at The Westmoreland Museum of American Art, via his new installation in the Robertshaw Gallery.

With metal mesh, paint and other materials, the dreamlike “Summers of Green Apples with Salt” evokes memories of time the Lawrenceville-based artist spent with his grandmother. The installation will be on site through Aug. 5.

Sponsors of the June happy hour were Judy and Kevin O'Toole. Judy is finishing her tenure this month as the Greensburg museum's Richard M. Scaife Director/CEO, while Kevin recently retired as its director of facilities.

Works by Pittsburgh jewelry artist Maria Kyros were featured in the museum shop.

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.
