The homecoming Blue & Gold Celebration 2019 at the University of Pittsburgh at Greensburg includes the third annual Art Show @Pitt-Greensburg, sponsored by the alumni association.

Running through Founders Day on Oct. 10, the show in Millstein Library features 126 works by 49 amateur and professional artists, including students, faculty, staff, alumni and others from the surrounding community.

The show was organized by Julia Sefcheck, Pitt-Greensburg alumni engagement officer, who entered several of her own paintings.

During an Oct. 4 reception, Sefcheck said that artists could enter one of two divisions, general or judged. First through third place winners in four judged categories were announced that night, including:

• Mixed Media: Julie Yankovich, Dylan Pieszak, Hannah Entrekin

• Drawing: Jasmine Lear, Carmen Hill, Shelly Poli

• Photography: Karen Kaighin, Jason Reed, Amber McAlister

• Painting: Barry Shields, Sofia Herr, Mary Ellen Raneri

Judges were Kelli Brisbane, Bonnie West and Kenneth Nicholson.

Visitors to the show also had the opportunity to vote for Fan Favorite works, with those honors going to Jacqueline Drazdzinski, Steph Moraca and Doris Wood.

Reception guests included Pitt-Greensburg President Robert Gregerson and Eva Tansky Blum, chairperson of the University of Pittsburgh board of trustees.

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.
