Louisville artists to display work at Saint Meinrad Archabbey Library
Monday, June 10- Monday, July 15
Location: Saint Meinrad Archabbey Library
Saint Meinrad Archabbey Library Gallery, St. Meinrad, IN, will
exhibit the work of Louisville artists Kathy Loomis and Mike
McCarthy from June 10 to July 15.
Kathleen Loomis, a fiber artist, will display works from her
series entitled "Fine Lines." These quilts use narrow pieced strips
to hold together large expanses of tiny bits.
Metaphorically, they remind us that we are all held together by
fragile webs of infrastructure that we cannot always control.
Sculptor Mike McCarthy works in wood and stone and states that
viewing and creating art is needed to be a complete person.
Loomis learned sewing, embroidery and other kinds of handiwork
from her grandmothers and she has made her own clothes for 30
years. She is a self-taught quilter and has worked full time as an
artist since 2000. She has exhibited her work in juried shows in
the U.S. and Europe. In 2009, one of her pieces won the Quilts
Japan Prize in the Quilt National Show.
McCarthy graduated with a bachelor's degree in fine arts from
Bellarmine College. He exhibits his work at Pyro Gallery,
Louisville, KY, and is a juried member of Kentucky Crafted and
Kentucky Crafted Architectural Artists.
