July 27, 2018 GMT

The East Suburban Artists League is ready to hold its 39th 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.”
