Emmy DePolo has certainly made "ART" her life. Beginning at the age of four, with no formal training, she began exploring various avenues. Watercolors that express "Nature", (Trees are her favorites), murals, pen and ink, and T-shirt design are but a few. Emmy is most known for her work with "Caricature". Some pieces have been autographed by Pittsburgh Steelers, "Troy Polamalu" and "Hines Ward". The use of "Bright Colors" are her signature, and most recently the use of "Quartz Crystals", as an accent, applied to paintings.
This body of art is dedicated tot the "Inner Brilliance" of "Special Needs Children". This group is often falsely thought of as "mentally handicapped" or even "anti-social". Time spent around them has inspired me. I am featuring their "angelic" faces in animal and nature scenes, with the use of bright acrylic colors. In addition, the placement of "clear quartz crystals" are used to bring forth their "innermost qualities".
Latrobe Art Center’s ANNUAL OPEN SHOW
June 5 - July 1, 2017
Dear Member of Latrobe Art League, The Latrobe Art Center was created by Laney Rogers Crozier and Libby Ogden Hazlett. The two Latrobe Art League Members, wanted to create a community art center in town for local artists to display their work. At the time The Latrobe Art League was the only Art Club. With Laney and Libby’s vision and passion for the arts on June 15th, 2002 the Latrobe Art Center was born. The Latrobe Art Center became the home of the Latrobe Art League, which was in existence for 67 years. However, this year it has been decided to merge Latrobe Art League and Latrobe Art Center as one. The League Members will officially become a Latrobe Art Center Member and part of this amazing artistic growing community. In celebration of this wonderful merge, we are having an Open Show to showcase this bright and new beginning for both. The show will start June 5th and run thru July 1st, 2017. This show will be divided into three categories: (1) Student Category; (2) Amateur Category; (3) Professional Category. All Ages and all levels are welcome to participate in this amazing exhibit. For fifteen (15) years, the Latrobe Art Center has become the hub of activity in downtown Latrobe. We are hopeful that this merge of the two organizations will continue to grow the Greater Latrobe Art Community. In celebration of this new beginning we will have the Opening Reception on June 15, 2017, “Latrobe Art Center’s 15th Birthday.” A free reception to the public; Dairy Queen Ice Cream Cake; Refreshments including wine and beer will be served. Join us as we launch into this new artistic journey together. After all, we are one!

Hi, my name is Becky Mormack. I have been painting for 15+ years. I am self taught in all my animals and wildlife oil paintings. I have some formal instructions in landscapes and still life. I want to warm the hearts of people when they see my art work, and even hear a laugh or two. I paint what I see and what I love; to capture the personality of an animal is a great reward. I want the viewer to take away happiness and a good feeling. I thank God (because it is all God for this talent and I know he would want me to share it and to teach others my way of painting). I have painting in Baggaley and Mt. View Elementary Collections and also the Greater Latrobe High School.
