Out & About: Greensburg Art Center hosts 'Mardi Gras' exhibit
“Mardi Gras,” a member show at Greensburg Art Center through Feb. 22, was planned to chase away the winter blahs.
Mother Nature's contribution to the Jan. 12 opening festivities was sunny skies and warm temperatures.
The chairwomen of Mardi Gras, a collection of ceramics, watercolors, blacksmith works, photographs, drawings, oils and acrylic paintings, were Cheryl Kirsch, Bonnie Hoffman and Sue Pollins.
Pollins said the exhibit was a great opportunity for new members and budding artists.
“You get to see your own work in relation to other work,” she said. “It is a learning experience on how to enter a show.”
April 20 is the deadline for individuals and groups to submit Feature Artist Proposals for exhibits to be considered for display in the Rowe Gallery next year. For forms and information, visit www.greensburgartcenter.org.
“Illumination,” by the Pittsburgh Society of Artists, is the exhibition scheduled for March 16.
Seen: Hank George, Betty Hammer, Jerry Scorpion, Joe Schildkamp, Bill Hoffman, Bob and Pat Majcher, Helen Thorne, Renie Pollock, Nina Stahlberg, Alexis Dillon and Martin and Karen Zueger.

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.
