The popular Art on Tap happy hour returned on Nov. 13 to the “new” Westmoreland Museum of American Art in Greensburg, looking more popular than ever by the size of the crowd.

Happy hour regulars and others curious to see the results of a major expansion and renovation — not to mention recent stunning art acquisitions — jammed the halls, stairways and cantilevered community room with its sweeping views of the city.

It was standing-room-only in the community room for live music and light bites from The Kitchen on Main in Ligonier.

Upstairs, guests strolled quietly through the galleries.

Some were there just to appreciate the art. Others were busy identifying fragments of artworks for a chance at scavenger hunt prizes from G Squared Gallery in Ligonier, owned by the evening’s hosts, H and Pat Childs.

Seen: Bob and Cate Cummings, Betsy Pride, Bob andDawn Davoli, Karen Hough, Jody Yunetz, Brian and Pam Henderson, Ron and TheresaGay Rohall, Jim andEsther Ulery, Mary Catherine Motchar andJim Clayton, Barbara Ferrier, Anna Zubrow, Pauline Douglas, Ron and Kathy Patun, Tim and Mary Jo Welty, Alexis Dillon, Jess Doris, Gretchen Uhrinek, Danielle Hollars, Darryl Audia, Brian Nymick, Tom Billeck, John and Linda Dixon, Michael Kozusko, Missy Monsour, Susan Ciarimboli and Roxi Fontanesi.

Museum staffers mingling with guests includedJudy O’Toole, Barbara Jones, Maureen Zang and Charlene Bidula.

For those who couldn’t make the party, there will be another one Dec. 11.

The museum schedule also includes gallery talks, art classes, Westmoreland Jazz Society concerts and a free Family Day on Nov. 28. Details: .

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.
