Portraits, sculptures on display at archabbey library


ST. MEINRAD – Saint Meinrad Archabbey Library Gallery is hosting an exhibit of portraits and sculptures by Louisville, Ky., artist Bob Lockhart. The show will run through June 30.

This exhibit includes Neocolor drawings and ceramic sculptures. The drawings are playful and brightly colored. According to the artist, they depict “famous people I’ve had tea with in the last several centuries.” The characters range from Ben Franklin to Frida Kahlo to Jimmy Hendrix.  The idiosyncratic sculptures have definite personalities and attitudes, although they do not represent famous figures.

For library hours, call (812) 357-6401 or (800) 987-7311, or visit the Archabbey Library’s website: www.saintmeinrad.edu/library/hours/. The exhibit is free and open to the public.
