How long does it take to break that no-more-partying New Year’s resolution that so many of us make?

Exactly one week, if you use the Jan. 8 Art on Tap happy hour in the Westmoreland Museum of American Art as an indicator.

Greensburg’s premier arts venue was buzzing with activity from top to bottom.

The all-ages crowd met friends in the lobby, popped into the community room for snacks from the Pier at Sharky’s and music by Jane West and picked up a drink from All Saints Brewery next to the staircase leading to the galleries.

Upstairs, the more competitive ones scoped out the artworks, in pursuit of scavenger hunt prizes.

The fun and games were sponsored by Autumn Stankay, founder of SkySight Photography in Greensburg.

If your no-party resolve begins to crumble, remember that Art on Tap happens on the second Friday of every month and will return Feb. 12.

Seen in the museum: Anne-Marie Welty andBrian Geary, Sherrie Dunlap, Gwen Loughner, Jeanne Kiss andDan Nocket, Alexis Dillon, Barbara Ferrier, Mary Catherine Motchar andJim Clayton, Kary Coleman andJosh Milan, Nancy Poholsky andChris Valyo.

Also,Carlo Luciano and Tina Delaney, Katie Kauffman andChris Roth, Tressa Zelczak andKelton Embree, Joan andJohn Clites, Shirleah Kelly, Bob Myers, Linda Blum, Madeline Blum andClayton Koch, Adriel Egyed, Haley Williams, Levi Toth andHannah Williams.
