Associated Artists of Pittsburgh Gallery Talk Thursday August 21, 2014 Gallery Talk
Associated Artists of Pittsburgh Gallery Talk
Now in its 103rd year, the Associated Artists of Pittsburgh annual exhibition is the longest running showcase of regional art in the country and truly represents an organization of the artists, by the artists, and for the artists of our region. Join Patrick Daugherty, David Stanger, and Christopher Ruane in our gallery as they detail the methods and motivations behind their entries into this year's exhibition.

Patrick Daugherty earned his MFA in painting from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and has taught at Pittsburgh Center for the Arts, Penn State Fayette, Westmoreland County Community College, and Touchstone Center for Crafts. He is co-founder and Director of the Frank L. Melega Art Museum in Brownsville. His art is in numerous corporate, private, and museum collections, including the Westmoreland Museum of American Art. He was named 2013 Touchstone Center for Crafts Artist of the Year.

Christopher Ruane is a composite artist and photographer with a BFA in Applied Media Arts from Edinboro University of Pennsylvania specializing in massive digital photomontages, sometimes with thousands of individual layers, each photographed and created separately. In 2012, his image, The Good Samaritan, was the winner of The National Catholic Arts Exhibition at St. Vincent College. In 2013, Ruane and his work were featured in Camera Obscura Journal, Whirl Magazine, The Catholic Accent, The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette and the National Catholic News Service.

David Stanger received a BFA in painting from Syracuse University. He studied painting and Renaissance art history in Florence, Italy before earning an MFA from the Hoffberger School of Painting at Maryland Institute College of Art. He served as the director and curator of the American Jewish Museum until his return to teaching in 2008. Stanger is currently an Assistant Professor of Painting and Drawing at Seton Hill University. His work has been exhibited regionally and nationally at such venues as Manifest Gallery, Seraphin Gallery, Fontbonne University, the Carnegie Museum of Art, the Mattress Factory Museum, and the Butler Institute of American Art. Stanger's work can be found in many private collections and is most notably in the collections of the Carnegie Museum of Art.

Refreshments will be served.

<i>Saving St. Barbara</i> Thursday October 23, 2014 Reading and Book Discussion
Saving 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 Szczepanski, author of Saving 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.

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

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).
