Archabbey Library Gallery to host art exhibit ‘Preserving the Past’

The Archabbey Library Gallery, located on the Saint Meinrad Archabbey campus in St. Meinrad,will host an art exhibit titled “Preserving the Past” from now through Aug. 30.

This multimedia exhibit features the face jugs and snake jugs of Tom Wintczac of Posey County, photographs by Julie Dant from Washington, Ind., and quilts from the family collection of Benedictine Brother Luke Waugh, a monk of Saint Meinrad.

Inspired by potters of the 18th and 19th century, folk artist Wintczac makes a variety of traditional pottery, including face jugs and snake jugs. In the past, these “ugly jugs” were used to warn about the contents of the jug; the more grotesque the figure, the more effective to scare children away from the poison, liquor or medicine within.

Dant finds inspiration for her photographs from abandoned houses, old buildings and nostalgic objects. Items from the past, bathed in light, live again in the context of the photograph and the appreciation of the viewer. In 2012, she received an award of excellence in the Krempp Gallery’s 19th Annual Juried Art Exhibit.

Brother Luke’s collection of quilts, made by members of his family over several generations, also represents a way of preserving the past.

For library hours, call 812-357-6401 or 800-987-7311, or log on to the Archabbey Library’s website at www.saintmeinrad.edu/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.
