Pamela Cooper, of Greensburg, works on a color pencil drawing during a 2015 Cafe Art a la Mode at the Greensburg Art Center. Cooper is a featured artist as the Mt. Pleasant Public Library begins a new art focused program, ‘Sunday Salons: Art in the Library,’ beginning with an Aug. 19 opening reception.

Greensburg artist Pamela Cooper will open a week-long exhibition at the Mt. Pleasant Public Library from 6 to 8 p.m. Sunday as part of new art focused program, “Sunday Salons: Art in the Library,” according to a news release.

The Aug. 19 opening will include a painting demonstration from Cooper and live music from Pittsburgh’s Sadie Freund, the release adds.

Cooper’s work includes the Westmoreland Cultural Trust’s “Art in the Alley” next to the Palace Theater in Greensburg.

She recently closed an exhibit, “Metaphorical View - Bridges,” at the Greensburg Garden and Civic Center.

The piece she paints during the library program will be auctioned of that evening, the release states.

“Sunday Salons: Art in the Library” is part of a new initiative the library is launching as part of an effort to bring to the library a variety of artists, musicians, and writers for an adults-only evening.

“This program comes out of a belief that art is beneficial to our society aesthetically, intellectually, and economically. And we have extremely talented artists around here in a multitude of disciplines,” library board member Stacy DiPasquele says in the release.

Cooper’s work will remain on view in the library through Aug. 25, when original pieces and prints will be sold. A portion of sales will benefit the library, the release notes.

Cost for the opening reception is $5.

Refreshments and drinks will be available, including wine and beer. This is a 21 and over event and proper identification is required.

Future “Sunday Salons” will be held Sept. 16, with the tales and poetry of Edgar Allan Poe, directed by Kat Post, and Oct. 21, with a masquerade ball, local art and tarot reader.

Artists interested in participating may contact the library.

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.
