Out & About: Westmoreland Museum’s Art on Tap for July
Umbrellas shielded patrons from the setting sun as they relaxed over cocktails and hors d’oeuvres on the patio July 14 at The Westmoreland Museum of American Art in Greensburg.
Featured performer for the monthly Art on Tap happy hour was Shirley Dragovich, lead singer of Gashouse Annie and the High Octane Band who sang and played guitar while representatives from Westmoreland Community Action educated attendees about the group’s mission to eliminate poverty and improve the conditions under which people live, learn and work.
The museum’s Richard M. Scaife Director/CEO Judith O’Toole, along with Janey Wensel and Steven Riley, helped customers in the Museum Shop, while friends Anita Manoli and Loute De St. Maurice spent some time catching up and shopping. Chief curator Barbara Jones mingled with guests.
Amy Faith and the Committee for the Westmoreland sold raffle tickets to benefit The Westmoreland’s educational programs, while John Faith sold the last tickets in his pocket to the July 20 Blind Pig Party at West Overton Village and Museum. Showing pictures of the new still, he said West Overton plans to return to its whiskey-making heritage this fall.
As happy hour came to a close and people headed into the perfect, clear night, music drifted up the hill from SummerSounds at St. Clair Park. Some headed to the concert, while others made plans for dinner downtown.
