The Neighborhood Trolley trundled around Saint Vincent College on Jan. 24, carrying visitors between openings in two campus galleries.

In the Saint Vincent Gallery, they found “a visual reminder to slow down, linger over and reflect upon the world as it exists around us,” according to curator Andrew Julo, in an exhibition titled “A Hidden Wholeness — The Zen Photography of Thomas Merton.”

Running through March 8, photographs by the late Trappist monk, author and activist are on loan from the Thomas Merton Center at Bellarmine University in Louisville, Ky. The opening included a talk by the center’s director, Paul Pearson.

Down the hill in the Foster and Muriel McCarl Coverlet Gallery, curator Lauren Churilla presided over the opening of “Common Threads: Weavers of Western and Central Pennsylvania.”

With more than 20 coverlets and historical details from 14 area weavers, the exhibition gives a nod to the planned spring opening of the Westmoreland County Historical Society’s new education center at Historic Hanna’s Town.

The historical society and coverlet gallery are community partners, Churilla says, in the work of “preserving the past and creating a better present and future.”

The coverlet show continues through June 7.

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.
