With temperatures making the area inhabitable only for tauntaun riding, the need to stay warm is increasingly important. While local churches and community services provide shelter to the city's needy, homeowners and tenants make use of extra space heaters, and long johns become a fashionable necessity. Good thing that Art Works Gallery is unveiling an exhibition to all things cozy with works in textiles. Featuring prayer rugs and tapestries by Michael Simon, quilts by Jean Gonzalez and three-dimensional fabrics by members of Charlottesville's Fiber Transformed, the shows are set to open Jan. 22 at 7 p.m., continuing through Feb. 21. A special family quilt show-and-tell workshop is scheduled for Sunday, Jan. 24, at 1 p.m.
