"Twisted Tech," a photo by Gloria Gonzalez, will be part of the upcoming You Are Here gallery’s second invitational exhibition.

The You Are Here art gallery in Jeannette will hold its second annual invitational next month, with twice as many participants as its first event.

A 6 p.m. Oct. 12 opening reception is planned at the 406 Clay Ave. gallery, and the show will run until Nov. 23, says Mary Briggs, gallery team member.

The juried exhibition will feature 42 regional artists working in a wide variety of media.

“We have all new pieces. There are a few returning artists. Last year, we had to beat the bushes, kind of, for entries. … This year we were overwhelmed with entries,” Briggs says.

“We will show twice as many artists this year. One qualification was that you could not have shown that work within a certain radius of Westmoreland County. As usual, it is a mixed media show. We do have some 3-D pieces, which makes it more interesting,” she adds.

Opening night plans include music and a taco food truck.

She expects that many of the participating artists will attend as well.

“It should be a lot of fun,” Briggs says.

Regular gallery 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.
