Sculptor Andrew Rice will speak at an upcoming Lunch a l’Art program in the Southern Alleghenies Museum of Art at Ligonier Valley.

Sculptor Andrew Rice will speak at a Nov. 1 Lunch a l’Art program in the Southern Alleghenies Museum of Art at Ligonier Valley.

The event will begin at noon and will include a meal and Rice’s presentation.

“Formally educated in the natural sciences, Rice develops a context, through metal, about the evolution of emotional spaces and consequences,” according to a release. “From a young age, he has had a lust for exploration with metal, and he chose forged metal as his medium because it is a non-conforming way to shape metal. He stresses hand forging as much as possible as it helps the work better represent the artist’s perspective.”

In his West Virginia studio, Rice works in forged sculpture, forged decorative furniture and forged steel with stone and wood accents, the release says. His sculptures are included in private and commercial collections along the east coast.

Fee for Lunch a l’Art is $15. Reservations are required by Oct. 26 at 724-238-6015 or ligonier@sama-art.org.

Lunch a l’Art programs at the museum at 1 Boucher Lane, Ligonier Township, are offered to encourage a greater understanding of various art forms and movements, and to foster a deeper appreciation of the museum’s exhibitions, the release adds.

Details: 724-238-6015 or sama-art.org

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.
