Pastels on exhibit at Archabbey Library
ST. MEINRAD – An art exhibit called “Plein-Air Pastels” will be on display at the Saint Meinrad Archabbey Library Gallery in St. Meinrad from Jan. 15 to March 5.
The exhibit showcases the plein-air (painting outdoors) works of two Kentucky artists, Jan Frazier of Owensboro and Iris Gentry of Henderson.
Both artists are adept in a variety of media and enjoy working outside, on location, where the constantly changing light is both an inspiration and a challenge.
This exhibit focuses on their work in pastels.
Frazier earned a bachelor’s degree in art education in 1973 and has worked in a variety of media.
Her goal is to bring the viewer to the place where the work was created “to see the beauty of the moment.”
She regularly exhibits work in the region, most recently in the winter show at the Owensboro Museum of Fine Art and in “Six Painted Ladies,” a group show at the Arts Council in Evansville.
Gentry studied art at Murray State University, University of Kentucky, Kentucky Wesleyan College and Brescia University.
She enjoys working outside because “the brilliant colors, smells, sounds and general sensory overload provide the artist with more inspiration than any camera could possibly begin to record.”
Her work is found in numerous corporate and private collections, including the Owensboro Museum of Fine Art.
For library hours call, 357-6401 or (800) 987-7311, or visit the Archabbey Library’s Web site www. saintmeinrad.edu/library/library_ hours.aspx.
The exhibit is free and open to the public.
Those wishing to view the exhibit may want to arrive at least 30 minutes before closing time.
