ST. MEINRAD — Saint Meinrad Archabbey Library Gallery will host an exhibit of oil paintings by Louisville artist Joyce Garner today through May 2.

Garner, a self-taught artist, is showing paintings from her Table Series. These paintings are large, colorful works that are both whimsical and exuberant.

The tables function as meeting places for a variety of individuals and creatures who gather to share a meal, converse or argue. The tables serve the old and the young, the active and the dreamers, shy characters and extroverts. Life happens around tables and it is a narrative that the viewer is invited to enjoy and explore.

Garner explains, “I do not want realism in the faces, but I do want expression that is readable.”
Garner has exhibited her work in the region and nationally, both solo and in group shows. She is represented by Reinike Gallery in Atlanta. She also exhibits in her own gallery on East Market Street in Louisville.

Her work is found in many private and corporate collections, including University Hospital in Cincinnati, Ohio, Kaiser Permanente in Atlanta and the Standard Country Club in Louisville.

For library hours, call 357-6401 or 800-987-7311 or visit the website at www.saintmeinrad.edu/library/hours/

The exhibit is free and open to the public. It is recommended that visitors allow themselves at least 30 minutes to view the exhibit.
