An opening reception took place March 9 in the Westmoreland Museum of Art in Greensburg for “Aaronel deRoy Gruber: Art(ist) in Motion,” an new exhibition running through June 2.
The show focuses on the late Pittsburgh artist's sculptural works using materials such as welded steel, formed aluminum and vacuum-formed Plexiglas, some of which are illuminated and motorized. A testament to her prolificacy and versatility, examples of her work in painting, photography, belt buckles, jewelry and even video also are on display.
Reflecting the featured work, the cocktail tables sported Plexiglas decorations lighted with glow sticks. Plexiglas bracelets and glass necklaces in the museum shop featured the artist's signature shape, the rounded square.
Preceding the main event, chief curator Barbara Jones gave remarks at a members' preview.
Special guests were deRoy Gruber's husband, Irv Gruber, daughter Jamie deRoy and son Terry deRoy Gruber.
Also present were the Westmoreland's director and CEO Judith O'Toole with Kevin, Jean Horne, Mr. and Mrs. Michael Daniels, Adrienne Heinrich, Mr. and Mrs. Richard Hendricks, Peter and Diana Jannetta, Mary Anne Papale, Heather Hollyday Semple, H and Pat Childs, Barbara Ferrier, Harry and Janie Thompson, Don and Carolyn Korb, Sam and Debbie Berkovitz and Jon and Jenifer Amundson.

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.
