The Southern Alleghenies Museum of Art at Ligonier Valley, 1 Boucher Lane, Ligonier Township, will host a Lunch a l’Art program with paper cutter Kathryn Carr at noon on April 18.

A self-taught paper cutter for more than a decade, Carr will share a history of the medium and her own experiences.

Carr shows and sells her art in galleries and at art festivals, and has a line of greeting cards sold nationally.

A Pittsburgh resident, she teaches paper cutting classes and has illustrated a children’s book.

“I will be talking about illustrating children’s books and my paper cut art and showcasing the book, ‘Lizbeth Lou Got a Rock in Her Shoe.’ I’ll also be talking a little about the book I am currently illustrating due out in the spring of 2020, ‘Lotte and Her Paper Puppet Pictures,’” Carr says in an email.

Carr is a Craftsmen’s Guild of Pittsburgh board member and a member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators.

Cost for the program, which includes lunch and presentation, is $15. Reservations are required by April 12.

A SAMA auxiliary meeting will be held prior to the program at 11 a.m. Those interested in joining the auxiliary may attend the meeting; contact the museum or visit its Facebook page.

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.
