Sunday, Jan. 20, 2013, 9:00 p.m.
 

“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.
