The Westmoreland’s summer fun night will feature ‘Jaws’ screening

“Whirlory,” a 2016 piece by Brenda Stumpf, will be part of the artist’s "Cavomyrt" exhibition at The Westmoreland Museum of American Art in Greensburg.

An evening of nautical-themed summer fun will begin at 7 p.m. June 22 at The Westmoreland Museum of American Art in Greensburg.

The Summer Saturday event will include viewing of nautical-themed art in the galleries, “beach” food and a cash bar. At dusk, the horror classic “Jaws” will be screened outside with live musical accompaniment by the Westmoreland Symphony.

In case of rain, activities and the screening will move into the museum’s community room.

The date also will serve as an opening reception for “Cavomyrt,” an exhibition of wall assemblages by Brenda Stumpf.

The name of the exhibition, “derived from the phrase ‘cave of my heart,’ consists of elaborate wall assemblages that function as enchanted reliquaries to love, innocence and intimacy,” the museum says. “These works have been created using items such as removed antique wallpaper, childhood dresses, objects and toys from her youth, plastic flowers, a rusted out wheel barrel, chandelier pieces, piano wire, sound reels and film negatives. The pieces are encapsulated with layers of sand dusted mediums where they’ve become almost crystalline and calcified.”

Admission is free. Registration is requested, but not required, at 888.718.4253 or

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.
