Saint Meinrad Archabbey Library Gallery, St. Meinrad, IN, is hosting an art exhibit called “Drawing the World,” by Kathryn Waters of Evansville, IN. The show runs from April 2 through May 12.
Waters is a professor of art at the University of Southern Indiana, where she has taught painting and drawing since the fall of 1981.
She earned a Master of Fine Arts degree in painting from Ohio University and a bachelor’s degree in art education from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
A recipient of many fellowships and artist residencies, she was honored with the University of Southern Indiana’s Distinguished Professor Award in 2015.
This exhibit reflects the artist’s love of drawing and the subjects and themes that she has explored over the years. It includes work from various series: landscapes, archetypal American scenes, and still life.
The drawings display intricate detail while also suggesting meaning beyond the merely mimetic. Dramatic color, light and shadow are essential to the structure of each composition. The medium used is pastel.
Her work has been exhibited widely at the national and regional levels, including Mind, Spirit: 12 Contemporary Indiana Women Artists at the National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington, D.C.
Her drawings and paintings also appear in many corporate, university, museum and private collections, including The Evansville Museum.
For library hours, call (812) 357-6401 or (800) 987-7311, or visit the Archabbey Library’s website: www.saintmeinrad.edu/library/library-hours/.
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.
