5 things to do in Westmoreland County: Feb. 3-5

Feb. 3—Limbs and rectangles

"Fleshy Limb Filled Rectangles," an exhibition by Kenneth Nicholson, will open Saturday at StopWatch Gallery & Studio, 323 S. Main St., Greensburg. Hours are noon to 5 p.m.

The show features oil paintings and drawings of figures and portraits, which the artist says are "aggressively disassembled and collaged back together to create strangely fractured and evocative images of the human body."

A free reception with the artist will be held 6 to 9 p.m. Feb. 11. The show runs through March 4.

A Latrobe native, Nicholson earned a master of fine arts degree from the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. He is an adjunct instructor at the University of Pittsburgh at Greensburg, Seton Hill University and Westmoreland County Community College. His work has been exhibited in Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Ohio, New Jersey, New York and Washington, D.C.
