Two Murrysville artists received Judge’s Mentions at the 2017 East Suburban Artists League (ESAL) Members Show.

Steve Frost received it for his photograph, “Gold Rose,” and Barbara Jewell for her watercolor, “Lean on Me.”

The ESAL Members Show is currently displayed in the entrance hall of the Community College of Allegheny County (CCAC) Boyce campus in Monroeville and runs through Sept. 1, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Saturday.

Seventy-four pieces displayed include watercolors, photography, acrylic, oils, pastels, ink, drawings, mixed media, fine craft and fiber. Many works are for sale.

Awards were presented at the show’s opening, Aug. 5, with juror Robert Huckestein, discussing the works chosen.

Larry Brandstetter of Monroeville took Best of Show for his whimsical illustration, “Greenback Mackerel,” at the 2017 East Suburban Artists League Members Show.

ESAL is a non-profit association of artists from communities in Allegheny and Westmoreland counties.

The group meets monthly in Murrysville from September to June to foster arts and crafts and to educate, inspire and encourage artists and patrons throughout this area.

The meetings are open to the public, and visitors are welcome.

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.
