The East Suburban Artists League will present its 40th Annual Members Show at CCAC’s Boyce Campus in Monroeville starting Aug. 12.

The show will run from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Saturday, Aug. 12 through Sept. 6, at the college’s main entrance.

There will be a free, public opening reception from 5 to 7 p.m. Aug. 10 where awards for Best of Show, judge’s awards and mentions will be presented to artists for their work.

ESAL artists have chosen their entries for the show, which range in oil, acrylic, watercolor and pastel paintings, photography, drawings in ink and pencil, crafts, mixed media, among others.

Some artwork will be available for sale.

Linda Galati, CCAC’s coordinator for the art show, said there is no additional time left for artists to enter their pieces.

“(The show) was getting so big that it was becoming impossible to hang them all. And the space is not growing, we’re still small,” she said, adding organizers decided to limit artists this year for the first time to one piece per entrant.

Ann McCartney, an artist based in South Hills, will be this year’s judge for the show. She teaches oil painting privately and for the Primary Colors Art Guild at LifeSpace in Dormont. McCartney is also a member of the Upper St. Clair Art League and is Art Curator for the South Hills Jewish Community Center.

ESAL is a group made of artists from communities in Allegheny and Westmoreland counties. It meets monthly in Murrysville from September to November and from February to May.

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.
