University of Evansville Emeritus Professor of Art William F. Brown will be exhibiting drawings in the Saint Meinrad Archabbey Library Gallery, 200 Hill Drive in St. Meinrad, from Jan. 8 through Feb. 28.

Professor Brown’s illustrations have appeared in newspapers and magazines throughout the country. At the University of Evansville, Brown was chairman of the Art Department from 1998-2011.

This exhibit, titled “Observations in Pen and Ink,” is about space, entryways and pathways, the strength of structures, interiors and exteriors, stone ornamentations and decorations.
