Latrobe Art Center is taking “A Walk on the Wild Side” with a new exhibition of animal art work.

Featuring area artists Becky Mormack and June Drexler Robertson, the show is running through Nov. 9 in the center at 819 Ligonier St.

The artists came together to create the show which speaks to their shared love of animals and nature.

“Our styles compliment and differ in such interesting ways,” Robertson says. “Visitors will experience a range of vision with this show, from sweet pets to wild nature.”

A free reception is scheduled for 6-8 p.m. Oct. 17, featuring light bites and beverages.

A self-taught artist, Mormack has been painting animals for nearly 30 years and has shown her work both locally and nationally. She says farm life has offered endless inspiration for her paintings.

Robertson paints primarily in oils, with subjects ranging from the family dog to the woods to deep sea life. Recently, she also has ventured into human portraiture.

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.
