The Southern Alleghenies Museum of Art , 1 Boucher Lane, Ligonier, will host a Lunch a l’Art program with New Stanton portrait artist Lisa Bane at noon on Jan. 17.

She pursued a nursing career, but was forced to leave the profession in her mid-20s upon diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis.

Bane returned to her earlier passion, art, and now works primarily in oil and charcoal and specializes in both people and pet portraits. She currently is working on a series titled “Portrait of New Stanton Church”.

Her works are included in private collections throughout the U.S., Canada and South America.

The SAMA auxiliary will hold an 11 a.m. meeting prior to the lunch program. Those interested in joining may attend the meeting, contact the museum or visit its Facebook site .

Lunch a l’Art programs are offered to encourage a greater understanding of various art forms and movements, as well as foster a deeper appreciation for the museum’s exhibitions.

Program cost, including lunch and presentation, is $15. Reservations are required by Jan. 11.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

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.
