Art enthusiasts will have more than enough places to go in Murrysville during the next month, with art shows and standing exhibits all over the municipality.

On Oct. 18 and 19, the Murrysville Woman’s Club will sponsor its annual art show at Redstone Highlands.

It will run from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Oct 18, and from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Oct. 19.

Sue and Dan Yaklich of Delmont will also have a standing gallery on display at Redstone Highlands which runs through the end of November. The couple is entering three pieces each in the woman’s club show.

“I put entries in the woman’s club show that are new and different mediums than the ones in the gallery show, which are mostly photography,” Sue Yaklich said. “The woman’s club show pieces are pastels, and a large one will be dyes on silk.”

Yaklich’s husband Dan is submitting watercolor pieces for both displays.

The woman’s club show will be judged by Whitehall Arts President Diane Murray. She studied drawing, composition, ceramics, and design at San Jose State College and has taken workshops in watercolor, acrylics, photography, oil and pastel.

She taught middle and high school students in Pittsburgh Public Schools for more than 30 years and used art to involve her students in writing and reading.

A few minutes away at the Murrysville Community Library, Bob Bickers of Murrysville will be blasting into orbit with artwork commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing and the missions that followed.

The exhibit is sponsored by the East Suburban Artists League and a new artist is featured each month.

Working mostly in oil and acrylics, Bickers created a series of paintings depicting the Apollo astronauts exploring the lunar surface.

The exhibit will be open to the public through Oct. 31, and most of the pieces are available for sale.

And finally, the 44th annual Christian Art Show at Calvary Lutheran Church is seeking artist submissions through Oct. 28 for its show, set for Nov. 9 and 10. Entry forms are available at the church office or by calling 724-327-2898 or visiting CalvaryLCMS.org.

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.
