Artists invited to submit work for Pitt-Greensburg fall show

Professional and amateur artists are invited to submit their work for the The Art Show @ Pitt-Greensburg, running Sept. 27-Oct. 10 at the University of Pittsburgh at Greensburg in conjunction with the Blue & Gold Celebration 2019.

Entries are being sought for the third annual art show to be held as part of the Blue & Gold Celebration 2019 at the University of Pittsburgh at Greensburg.

The exhibit will run from Sept. 27 through Oct. 10, Pitt-Greensburg’s Founders’ Day. Artwork will be available for viewing during normal operating hours at the Millstein Library on the Hempfield campus.

This year’s show will feature both General and Judged categories. Winners will be announced during a public reception from 6-7:30 p.m. Oct. 4. Some artwork will be available for purchase.

“The Art Show @ Pitt-Greensburg is open to all skill levels and ages. We’ve added the Judged category this year because there was interest from the professional artists who have participated to have this opportunity,” says Julia Sefcheck, Pitt-Greensburg alumni engagement officer. “In keeping with the show’s overall purpose of showcasing the talent of our region, the General category provides a venue for artists within the Pitt community and surrounding communities to share their work.”

Two-dimensional, original painting, drawing, photography, mixed media, digital art and graphic art pieces will be accepted for the General category.

The General category allows artists to display any number of pieces. From these pieces, three winners will be named “fan favorites” and awarded prizes. Winners will be chosen based on a fan-favorite voting system, beginning Sept. 27 and closing at 5 p.m. Oct. 4.

The Judged category allows artists to submit up to five current pieces to be evaluated for special recognition by three judges. The top vote-getter in each category will be awarded a prize. Second- and third-place pieces in each category will receive a certificate.

Artwork for the Judged category can include two-dimensional painting, drawing, photography and mixed media.

The show is supported in part by Muse Sponsor Fotorecord Print and Marketing Center.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

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.
