Artist’s paintings reflect hope, ‘rain or shine’

Artist Stacey Pydynkowski will exhibit her work throughout May at the Greensburg Garden & Civic Center.
Artist Stacey Pydynkowski’s work explores a variety of emotions, with a common thread of resilience and hope.

Artist Stacey Pydynkowski’s exhibit, “Rain or Shine,” will showcase a new series of introspective paintings during a month-long run at the Greensburg Garden & Civic Center, 951 Old Salem Drive.

The show is open through May 31, with an artist reception from 6-8 p.m. May 7.

Pydynkowski’s paintings explore a wide range of emotions, unified by the common thread of resilience and hope, rain or shine, according to the civic center.

“I invite you to feel; I invite you to let the images transport your mind to somewhere meditative, somewhere lively, somewhere old, or perhaps somewhere new,” Pydynkowski says of her exhibit.

A Saint Vincent College graduate with bachelor’s degrees in psychology and studio arts, she enjoys the creative process — how pigments merge to convey a spectrum of emotion and depth beyond the confines of language, she says.

An advocate for art in public places, she is a Westmoreland Cultural Trust Incubator artist and active in the local art community as a member of Latrobe Art Center, the Indiana Art Association and Greensburg Art Center.

According to her website,, she has shown her art work at Slippery Rock University, Saint Vincent College, University of Pittsburgh-Greensburg, Seton Hill University, Westmoreland Cultural Trust’s Art in the Alley and Southern Alleghenies Museum of Art, among other sites.

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.
