Jeannette art center hosts winter fiber artist exhibit
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.
