You Are Here: A Place for Art nonprofit art center at 406 Clay Ave., Jeannette, is holding “Stitches,” a winter exhibition of three fiber artists, Jan. 12 through Feb. 23.

The exhibition showcases center resident artist Pamelajean Werner, center satellite artist Jess Higo Walbridge and guest artist Imani Russell, according to a release.

Werner, who has decades of experience as a weaver and maker of rag quilts, is inspired by both traditional and contemporary insights. Walbridge is a master crocheter whose intention is “to bring ‘women’s work’ into a fine art setting” with her references to monsters and powerful women. Washington, D.C.-area artist Russell creates her cloth dolls using worn clothing, found fabrics and unusual objects, a tradition passed down from her mother and grandmother, the release notes about the artists.

An opening reception will be held at 6 p.m. Jan. 12, and is free and open to the public.

Regular center hours are noon to 6 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and noon to 3 p.m. Sundays.

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.
