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.
