The East Suburban Artists League announced Thursday an opening reception for its second show at the Latrobe Art Center is planned Oct. 7 from 7 to 9 p.m. The center is located at 819 Ligonier St.
The show will be judged by Alice Lieb, who has been an exhibiting professional artist, museum educator, arts administrator, and teacher, in her 30 years in the arts and art education. She is past president of the Associated Artists of Pittsburgh and a member of the Pittsburgh Society of Artists. Her education includes a Masters of Education in Museum Leadership; a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Painting; and recently a Professional Certificate in Floral Design from Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Garden. Currently, Alice is a volunteer Docent at Carnegie Museum of Art and a free-lance floral designer. Awards will be presented at 8 p.m. during the reception.
The show expects to feature nearly 70 works of art, the group said, in all types of media, styles and techniques including: paintings in oil, acrylic and watercolor; photography; drawings in pastel, ink and pencil; fine crafts in fiber and wood; mixed media; and more. It opens Tuesday and will run through Oct. 31. The center is open Monday-Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. It is closed Sundays.

Featured artist Pat Marvenko Smith of North Huntingdon will discuss Revelation Productions, the company she and her husband Joel formed in the early 1980s that specializes in visual representations of the Bible's Book of Revelation, according to a previous Tribune-Review article.
That free event starts at 6:30 p.m. Oct. 5 at Christ Lutheran Church, 5330 Logan Ferry Road.
