Saint Meinrad Archabbey Library Gallery in St. Meinrad will host a two-person exhibit, “Adventures in Abstract Art,” through Feb. 28. Fabric artist Julia Sermersheim from Santa Claus, Ind., and Bob Zasadny, a sculptor from Princeton, Ind., will be exhibiting work in the show. Both are inspired by shapes, colors and textures, which they explore while searching for harmonious compositions. The exhibit is free and open to the public. Visitors are encouraged to arrive at least 30 minutes before closing time at the gallery. For library hours, call 812-357-6401 or 800-987-7311 or visit the Web site at www.saintmeinrad.edu/library/hours.
A course on “Nuno Felting Fabric Yardage” will be held from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 31, at the White Violet Center for Eco-Justice, a ministry of the Sisters of Providence of Saint Mary-of-the-Woods. Debby Green of Forsythe Family Farms Alpacas of Marshall, Ill., will share her expertise with participants in the course. Compared to other types of felting, the art of Nuno felting is relatively young, having been developed by an Australian fiber artist in 1992. The technique creates a light and airy, soft and flexible felt. Cost for the event is $100, which includes materials, use of equipment, meals and refreshments. Registration deadline is Wednesday, Jan. 28. For more information or to register, call 812-535-2932 or e-mail email@example.com. The motherhouse of the Sisters of Providence of Saint Mary-of-the-Woods is located just northwest of downtown Terre Haute.
