Rudolech oil paintings on display at Saint Meinrad Archabbey Library
Sunday, September 1- Tuesday, October 15
Location: Saint Meinrad Archabbey Library Gallery
Saint Meinrad Archabbey Library Gallery, St.
Meinrad, IN, will host "Beauty is in the Heart," an exhibit of oil
paintings by Lawrence Rudolech. The exhibit will be on display from
September 1 through October 15.
Rudolech is a lifelong resident of Madison, IN. He attended the
John Herron School of Art in Indianapolis and, until 2007, pursued
a career in graphic design. In the late 1990s, he returned to his
youthful interest in painting, inspired by his wanderings in the
back roads of Indiana.
He paints both in the studio and on location, attending plein
air events as far away as Texas. He exhibits widely in galleries,
including the Brown County Art Gallery, Nashville, IN; the Hoosier
Salon, Indianapolis; and the McBride Gallery, Annapolis, MD.
Rudolech paints in oil, using bright colors and bold energetic
brushstrokes. His subjects include figures, landscapes and
cityscapes. Painting is a way to express his emotional response to
simple things, such as a road covered in early morning fog.
He explains, "I am trying to make sure that [people] do not miss
the beauty that comes with small, and sometimes simple, things in
life. I realize that it is only with God's blessing that I am able
to see more with my heart than with my eyes."
