Murrysville artist Bob Bickers' work will be featured throughout December at Gallery Space in Monroeville.

New Horizons: Landscapes in Oil by Bob Bickers will be on display through Dec. 30 at the gallery, 4000 Gateway Campus Blvd. in Monroeville, in the Monroeville library.

The bulk of the show's paintings are new landscapes and have never been on public display before. Having recently retired from the practice of law, the show also represents Bickers' new explorations as a full-time artist.

Bickers has been creating art professionally for more than three decades, with a background in photography, acrylics and oils. His work has been displayed at venues including the Southern Alleghenies Museum of Art in Ligonier Valley, the Westmoreland Museum of Art, the Greensburg Garden and Civic Center, Murrysville municipal building and previously at Gallery Space.

Bickers is an active member of the East Suburban Artists League and the Pittsburgh Society of Artists.

An opening reception for the show will be from 6 to 8 p.m. on Dec. 9 at Gallery Space. For more, see BobBickers.net .

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.
