Pastel artist Stan Sperlak will discuss his work during a Southern Alleghenies Museum of Art program.

Pastel artist Stan Sperlak will present his work during a Lunch a l’Art program at noon May 23 at the Southern Alleghenies Museum of Art at Ligonier Valley, 1 Boucher Lane, Ligonier Township.

Approximately 65 of the New Jersey-based artist’s works will be featured in an exhibit there through Aug. 4.

Program cost for “The View from My Easel: Pastel Landscapes of the East Coast,” is $15, and reservations are required.

According to a museum release, Sperlak paints an array of works inspired by surrounding areas such as South Jersey, Delaware and Maryland. He is featured in many galleries found throughout these areas, including an appearance in the permanent collection of Noyes Museum in Oceanville, N.J.

Sperlak is a descendant of a Slovakian immigrant coal miner who settled in Connellsville in 1887, the release states.

The museum will host a SAMA auxiliary meeting prior to the program, at 11 a.m. Anyone interested in joining the auxiliary may attend.

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.
