Friday January 17 – Friday February 28
Archabbey Library Gallery

“Hustle and Bustle,” an exhibit of paintings by Louisville, KY, artist Kayla Bischoff, will be on display from January 17 through February 28 in the Saint Meinrad Archabbey Library Gallery, St. Meinrad, IN.

Bischoff creates multi-layered compositions that combine figuration and abstraction, exploring individual and social psychology. Informed by the anxieties of the zeitgeist, her paintings are also playful and approachable.

Bischoff works in acrylic on several canvases at a time allowing ideas to develop and grow, layer by layer, into different paintings. Inspired by art brut, graffiti, cartoons and action painting, the frenzied figures reflect the tumultuous and joyful nature of human existence.

Bischoff earned a bachelor’s degree in 2014 from Bellarmine University. In 2019 she was awarded a Professional Artist Development Grant from the Great Meadows Foundation, allowing her to travel to Italy for the Venice Biennale International Contemporary Art Exhibition. Her work can be seen in Galerie Hertz in Louisville.

For library hours, call (812) 357-6401 or (800) 987-7311 or visit the Archabbey Library’s website:

The exhibit is free and open to the public. Those wishing to view the exhibit may want to arrive at least 30 minutes before closing time.
