Categories include hardbacks, paperbacks, spirituality, Bibles, novels, history, children’s books and health and wellness books, as well as used CDs and DVDs.

All proceeds benefit the Sisters of Providence mission and ministries.

Items are not pre-priced, but fair donations will be accepted. The sisters will accept donations of books, CDs and DVDs until the week before the sale.

Archabbey Library Gallery to host exhibit by Keith Armstrong and Kazhia Kolb

Saint Meinrad Archabbey Library Gallery, 200 Hill Drive, at Saint Meinrad Seminary and School of Theology in St. Meinrad, is hosting a multimedia exhibit by two Indiana artists—wood turnings by Keith Armstrong and paintings by Kazhia Kolb—through Aug. 31.

Keith Armstrong of Princeton, Ind., in the Evansville Diocese, started wood turning in 1983. He focuses on exposing the beauty of the imperfect grain found in cast-off pieces of burl, tree forks, roots and limbs. His work is made from fallen trees or those that are dying and must be felled. Every piece is unique and reflects the individuality of the tree that is the source of his inspiration.

Light is what inspires St. Meinrad artist Kazhia Kolb. By returning to the same place many times in different seasons or times of day, the painter becomes more intimate with the subject, which never looks quite the same. Painting on location forces Kolb to work rapidly to capture what is essential, transforming what is transitory into a harmonious composition.

Her exhibit includes multiple views of the Ohio River, interior scenes and views of the studio. The paintings are in oil on canvas and egg tempera on wood.

For library hours, call 812-357-6401 or 800-987-7311, or log on to the Archabbey Library’s website: 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.
