The Eli M. Oboler Library at Idaho State University is pleased to announce a new exhibit of paintings by Louis Pirro, named “Patterns in the Void.” The art will be displayed from February 1 through April 30, 2015, in the art exhibit area on the 1st floor.

Over the last 33 years Lou has worked as a muralist, art director, illustrator, educator, and fine artist, showing in galleries in the Northeast and Intermountain West. Of his recent series, “Patterns in the Void,” he had this to say:

“I am amazed by the creations of nature and culture both. My intent is to create an object or experience that engenders that feeling and mystery. Through using paint and a process that renders ambiguous results, I can parallel scientific and cultural imagery, and draw from sources as widely varied as Old Master & Abstract Expressionist painting, and Hubble, MRI, and Landsat photography.”

The Library will host a reception for the artist and his work on Tuesday, February 24, from 5:00 pm to 6:30; this event is free and open to the public.

The art may be viewed at any time the library is open. For more information please contact Kristi Austin at the Oboler Library (208) 282-4073, and visit the artist’s webpage at

The Oboler Library is located on the corner of 9th and Martin Luther King, Jr. Way, at 850 S. 9th Avenue in Pocatello, ID.
