Pop-Up Studio with Gabe Felice Wednesday October 22, 2014 Adult Studio
Pop-Up Studio with Gabe Felice
Artist Gabe Felice offers an evening of intrigue and amusement in this engaging Pop-Up Studio that will fuse his creative process with clairvoyance and "psychometry" - a form of psychic reading in which one individual claims to obtain details about another through physical contact with their possessions.

Participants are invited to hold an object of their choosing for a few minutes. During this time, subtle energies are transferred into the object. After the object is placed into the artist's hand, he will translate the energy into colors, images and phrases through the act of painting and drawing.

Each participant will take home their own personal Psychic Art "Reading" on canvas or paper and the opportunity to observe the creative process on an interactive level.

Wine, beer, snacks and materials will be provided.

Space is limited. Reserve your spot today online or by calling 724-837-1500 ext. 110

<i>Playing St. Barbara</i> Thursday October 23, 2014 Reading and Book Discussion
Playing St. Barbara
The rich deposit of bituminous coal that ran along the foothills of the Laurel Highlands fueled the mighty steel industry of Pittsburgh in the early twentieth century. By the early 1900s Pennsylvania had more company towns, known as "coal patches," than any other state in the nation as thousands of immigrants flocked to this region.

Meet Marian Ulicny Szczepanski, author of Playing St. Barbara, as she explores the hardships and hopes of a family working toward a better life in a patch town in Fayette County. Marian will read excerpts from her novel that weaves historical facts about places and events in our region with a compelling fictional narrative about an immigrant family struggling against the daily challenges of this grueling lifestyle. Join in a discussion about the mother and daughters who dream of a future beyond the patch but whose destinies are tied to the economic realities of a life where dirt and tears are as abundant as the coal that permeates every aspect of their lives.

With an MFA in creative writing from Warren Wilson College, Marian Szczepanski has won writing awards from the Clackamas Literary Review and the Houston Press Club. Born in Crabtree, Pennsylvania and raised in Greensburg, she was captivated by the stories that her grandparents would tell about their lives in coal mining towns. It was a childhood dream to look into her familys past in order to tell a story that will resonate with many southwest Pennsylvania residents today.

Light refreshments will be served.

Playing St. Barbara is available in the museum's gift shop. Purchase a copy today and fall in love with these courageous characters.

Time : 6:30PM - 8:00PM
Cost : FREE

Putt Putt Party Saturday November 08, 2014 Special Event
Putt Putt Party
Step up to the tee to raise a little green for the Greensburg YMCA and the Westmoreland Museum of American Art children's programs!

Putt Putt Party 2013 was a Hole in One: in it's first year, thanks to our 120 guests and 16 sponsors, the event raised almost $10,000 in proceeds for the Strong Kids Campaign and Imagine Nation programs.

This year, let's tee off for a second round with double the fun, double the attendance, and double the proceeds! The Second Annual Putt Putt Party will feature a nine-hole miniature golf course designed and built by students at the Central Westmoreland Career and Technical Center and transformed into works of art by local artists. This year, the artists will base their designs on paintings from The Westmoreland's collection, and the course will be set inside the Museum's temporary location on route 30, Westmoreland @rt 30.

For $50 dollars, you will not only support two great children's programs, but also enjoy food stations from some of the area's best local restaurants, a bar including several Putt Putt cocktails, live music, creative takes on the Museum's art collection and tons of Putt Putt fun! Bring your own team, come as a single golfer or even a spectator and join in the party!

The course will also be open for our Imagine Nation and Strong Kids families to come and enjoy for free on Sunday, November 9, 2014 from 11 AM - 3 PM (no registration required).

Pop-Up Studio with Richard Claraval
Experimenting with a process that fuses the human figure with abstract gesture, attendees will make dynamic drawings that seem to breathe life and movement into charcoal figures and the empty space surrounding them. You don't need to possess a mastery of figure drawing to enjoy this experience. By combining tracings from the works of masters with your own rhythmic abstractions made with charcoal, you'll be amazed at how lively drawing can be and how alive your artwork will appear!

Wine, beer, snacks and materials will be provided.

Space is limited. Reserve your spot today online or by calling 724-837-1500 ext. 110
