Artist Reception October 25

October 21st, 2016

Please join us and meet Joe Keller! 

ISU Oboler Library will host a reception for artist Joe Keller on Tuesday, October 25 from 4:30 to 6:00 pm.  Light refreshments will be served!

Keller’s art exhibit features 24 oil paintings and is currently on display through the end of December in the Library’s first floor art exhibit area.

Keller is a lifelong resident of Idaho Falls and is proud to call it home. He began painting as a child. Keller paints mostly on canvas, but is an avid experimenter and some of his later works are done on an ultra-smooth, warm white plastic surface.

Keller is a member of the Art Museum of Eastern Idaho, Gallery 12, Eagle Rock Art Guild, Bonneville Art Association, and the Snake River Plein Air Painters, and is the owner of Aspen Grove Art in Idaho Falls.

The exhibit is free and may be viewed any time the library is open.

Fast Facts about donors

  • The number one reason donors say they give blood is because they “want to help others.”
  • Two most common reasons cited by people who don’t give blood are: “Never thought about it” and “I don’t like needles.”
  • Half of Red Cross donors male, and half are female.
  • The Red Cross only accepts blood donations from volunteer donors.
  • Among Red Cross donors in a given year, 24 percent donate occasionally, 26 percent are first-time donors, and 50 percent are regular, loyal donors.
  • Only 7 percent of people in the U.S. have type O negative blood. Type O negative donors are universal red cell donors as their blood can be given to people of all blood types.
  • Type O negative blood is needed in emergencies before the patient’s blood type is known and with newborns who need blood.
  • Forty-eight percent of people in the U.S. have type O (positive or negative) blood. This percentage is higher among Hispanics – 57 percent, and among African Americans – 51 percent.
  • Only 3 percent of people in the U.S. have AB positive blood type. AB positive type blood donors are universal donors of plasma, which is often used in emergencies, for newborns and for patients requiring massive transfusions.
