East Suburban Artist League exhibit to run in December at Art Gallery

Artwork by members of the East Suburban Artists League (ESAL) is on display from Dec. 1 to 30, in the Penn State New Kensington Art Gallery.

More than 80 paintings, drawings, photographs, sculptures, intarsia (wood inlays), quilts and paper crafts are part of the multi-media exhibit, and many are for sale at prices ranging from $50 to $500. An artists' reception is slated for 7 to 9 p.m. Dec. 7, in the gallery.

Ted Scanga, a longtime ESAL member, is coordinating the exhibit. Scanga previously exhibited at the campus Art Gallery in 2003 and 2008, sharing top billing with his brother-in-law, John Pastorek. The pieces by Scanga include woodwork, multi-colored turned vases and paintings. Painting is a hobby for this Lower Burrell resident, who retired from Alcoa as a technical marketing manager in 1992 after 32 years. He uses photographs and his imagination as a basis for most of his paintings. In between painting periods, he likes to work in other art forms, especially woodwork.

The Art Gallery and the East Suburban Artists League exhibit will be open through the holiday break except for Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year's Eve and New Year's Day. Hours are 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday and noon to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. The reception and exhibit are free to the public.
