Despite dire warnings of ice and snow, a pretty good crowd made it out for the Jan. 12 Art on Tap in The Westmoreland Museum of American Art.

One incentive to venture out might have been discounted admission for folks living in the surrounding 15601 Zip Code area, offered as a thank-you for local support of the Greensburg facility, according to marketing and public relations director Claire Ertl.

So, it was wet and miserable outside, but inside there was a party, with the usual Art on Tap trappings, including the art scavenger hunt, cocktails and canapes, and music by Joe Dedon, sometimes called Crawdad Joe for his Louisiana bayou roots.

Selling 50-50 tickets, a new regular feature of the monthly happy hours, were Amy Faith and Cathy Longacre.

Seen: Nate and Carly Bolby, Marissa Schimizzi, Eric and Natalie Lloyd, Gene James, Betty Minick, Mary Ross Cox, Jon andNina Lewis, Jim and Karen O'Connor, Gay Wasserman, Barbara Ferrier, Aaron andDyan Kulik, Brett andAmanda Shuster, P.J. andAnita Simpson, Matt and Kathleen Healey, Sherry Anderson, Brian and Sarah Ferrell, Pati Beachley, Victoria Fox andJessica Hickey.

Also, museum staffers Barbara Jones, Catena Bergevin, Kevin O'Toole, Randall Oaks and Maureen Zang.

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.
