Registration is $10 and can be paid at the door. The cost includes a training manual.

Saint Meinrad art exhibit features clay and paper artists through May 14

An art exhibit titled “Clay and Paper” will be on display in the Saint Meinrad Archabbey Library Gallery, 200 Hill Dr., in St. Meinrad, through May 14.

The featured artists are David and Barbara Rodenberg of Evansville, Ind.

Barbara Rodenberg is a paper maker and collage artist. Nearly all of her raw material starts out as junk: junk mail, rusty junk from the street, the dusty contents of junk drawers and junk shop discoveries. She has been showing her work regionally since 2009.

David Rodenberg is a potter and sculptor, making both sculptural and functional pieces. He uses high-fire stoneware clay, mixing his own glazes from a variety of clays and chemicals. He has won numerous awards regionally, and has exhibited work in international shows in France and Germany. His work can be seen in the Evansville Museum of Arts and Science.

The exhibit is free and open to the public. It is recommended that visitors arrive at least 30 minutes before closing time.

For library hours, call 812-357-6401 or 800-987-7311 or go to www.saintmeinrad.edu/library/library-hours.
