The East Suburban Artists League is ready to hold its 39 th annual art show at the Community College of Allegheny County Boyce Campus on the first Saturday of August.

This year, Diane Murray, of South Hills, will judge the nearly 70 pieces of art that ESAL members submitted. The opening ceremony, where Murray will announce a “Best of Show” winner, will be from 5 to 7 p.m. at CCAC Boyce Campus, 595 Beatty Road.

She will also give six other awards and 10 artists will also receive judge’s mention awards. Murray is an artist and photographer who is active in many art groups in the region. She also teaches techniques used in soft pastels, watercolors and using an iPad to create art, according to an ESAL news release.

The art show will be displayed at the college’s main entrance hall from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Saturday until Sept. 7, said Linda Galati, ESAL’s Boyce show coordinator.

Some of the art will be available for purchase.

“We’ve been having it there for the last 39 years,” she said. “It’s been a great venue for us, it gets a lot of traffic from teachers and students.”

TribLIVE commenting policy

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.
