  • ST. MEINRAD – Saint Meinrad Archabbey Library Gallery is hosting an exhibit of pastels by Henderson, Ky., artist Iris Gentry.

    Gentry works on location as much as possible, overcoming the difficulties of the constantly changing light as well as the problems of wind, bugs and traffic.

    She says the brilliant colors, smells, sounds and general sensory overload provide more inspiration than any camera could begin to record.

    Although she enjoys working in a variety of mediums, this show concentrates on her work in pastels.
