    The Artist Within
    313 S Walnut
    Botanically and Naturally Inclined – The work of Cindy Norrick Turner
    Cindy Norrick Turner’s style of painting is very colorful and very bold and this is apparent to even the most casual observer. Cindy is a native of Delaware County and a graduate of BSU with a degree in graphic design. Since her first class taken from local watercolorist Brian Gordy, Turner has exhibited regularly throughout central Indiana in her own shows as well as in juried competitions.  She continues to take additional classes and workshops in watercolor techniques and has admirers throughout the world due to her exposure on Facebook and Flickr. Topics for her paintings change often from the botanicals offered in this show to the architectural paintings at her next show in October 2013 at The Rose Court.  Turner does commissioned work as well as of those of her own choosing.  Contact Turner at renrut1105@aol.com, through her Facebook page, or through her Flickr account to see more of her paintings or for more information.  She is also currently signing up students for her fall “Basic Watercolor” class that will be taught at The Artist Within.

    Gordy Fine Art & Framing Co.
    224 E Main
    Color Ocean/Color Land –
    The work of Suzanne Lambert
    "I live in a sea of color, the waves roll in and thru and all around." - Suzanne Lambert.

    Guests to the upcoming First Thursday art opening at Gordy Fine Art and Framing are in for an eye-satisfying festival of color. Suzanne Lambert is well-known for mixed media canvases with stunning arrangements of poured, dripped and sprayed paints. The former dancer seems to transfer dance movements into her work; colors flow and are embellished with staccato beats, swirls and arabesques. Titles give hints to the artist’s meaning, or the place of inspiration. That could be the Ohio River Valley or the French countryside; Lambert splits her residence/studio between two continents. “My intention is to visually convey, through color, tone and composition, the feeling and essence of places I live and visit, the people I experience.” She continues, “Energy of life moves me; I wish to bring this feeling to the viewer, to touch them and, perhaps, to lift the soul…” Lambert will fill the main gallery with new works, and will speak about her work during the opening reception on First Thursday at 6:15 PM. Reception hours are 5 to 8 PM.

    iGarden – The work of Genny Gordy
    "I work in a garden of colors. My eyes dart from flower to fruit to bug, but my images are always about the intense saturation of color I find, especially the infrequent blue." - Genny Gordy.

    Genny Gordy will hang an exhibit of photos and watercolors in the Nook gallery during the month of September. Titled “iGarden”, the show exposes the acre of land in town that Gordy and husband, Brian, somewhat wildly maintain and that Genny’s iPhone camera readily captures. Fruit trees and grape vines share space with raised bed and traditional vegetable gardens. Flowers and herbs fill every view. Artworks dot the landscape – a Kim Anderson bird bath, Matt Lynch sculpture, an Amish fertility sign, painted by a friend.  A cabin, possibly 80 years old, serves as Genny’s garden shed. A blue desk in the shade is used as a garden bench and is the background for many photos. One hundred year-old trees edge the plot, and a dry stream bed runs through, serving only during heavy rains. A small bridge connects upper and lower yards where wildlife - from deer to heron to flying squirrel - has visited through the years. “It is where I reconnect with the ground beneath my feet and work out thoughts and muscles,” offers Genny. “Every day, I step out my back door into the wonder of the gardens and return renewed. These images are my attempt to share that colorful magic with others.”  Gordy will speak about her work at 6:30 PM on First Thursday.

    Both exhibits will remain on display through September 30, 2013, and may be viewed during normal business hours: Monday through Friday, 9 AM to 5:30 PM, Saturdays, 9 to 3, or by appointment.

    Gordy Fine Art & Framing Co. is located at 224 E. Main Street, next door to Muncie Civic Theatre.  For more information, call 765-284-8422 or visit http://www.gordyframing.com

    400 S Walnut
    Artwork of Munseetown Square
    The offices of DeFur Voran and Raymond James  are partnering to transform the lobby of Munseetown Square into a gallery, featuring the works of local artists David Dale, Brian Gordy, Jim Faulkner, Eric Ernstberger, and many others.

    Bette Graham
    Muncie native Bette Graham is known for her landscapes and popular images of cats.  For over sixty years, she has been active in the local arts community. Proficient in several art media, Graham's primary focus throughout her lengthy career has been printmaking--both wood block and linoleum.

    Jim Faulkner
    Faulkner taught and practiced contemporary abstract art while teaching at Ball State for thirteen years. Near the end of his college teaching in 1977, Faulkner returned to his background of realistic watercolor and sculpture.  There, he found a search for the essence of what he believes and feels to be truth.  He paints full time at the country homestead he shares with his wife, Eleanor, and various cats and dogs.  His studio is a restored barn.  He has received numerous awards throughout his painting career and is one of the most collected and well-known artists of east-central Indiana.

    Brian Gordy
    Brian Gordy taught art in the public schools, the university level and privately for over 20 years.  He exhibits throughout the United States and has earned numerous awards for his watercolors and charcoal drawings. Mr. Gordy, with his wife Genny and son Ben, own and operate Gordy Fine Art & Framing Company.

    Barbara LaRue King
    After graduating from Ball State with a Bachelor's degree in Fine Arts, LaRue King worked as a graphic designer at Indiana Glass Company where she rejuvenated the company’s packaging and marketing.  Her own line of design-on-glassware was distributed nationally through department store chains. Working at Hallmark’s Ensemble Company division, she designed product lines for Franklin Covey, the United States Post Office, and other high-profile Ensemble clients.  Most recently, she has been employed at Hallmark’s Kansas City headquarters designing album and giftwrap lines in Hallmark’s Gifts Studio. 

    Eric Ernstberger
    Eric Ernstberger, a Muncie resident, is a native to extreme southern Indiana’s un-glaciated landscape which stands in bold contrast to the flat un-forested terrain of the state’s better known midsection.  His love for painting, drawing and the arts was influenced by the physical attributes of this unique landscape and further evolved by the profession he has chosen to pursue for the last three decades. Ernstberger is a registered site architect and founding partner of Rundell Ernstberger Associates, the region’s largest urban design and site architectural firm with offices in Muncie, Indianapolis, and Louisville.  His vivid expressionistic paintings in acrylic on paper are spontaneous, free flowing images of landscapes, objects, people, and events, offering intense abstraction or new perspectives on familiar subjects.

    David Dale
    Artist and designer David Dale was born in Muncie in 1940.  He attended the Fort Wayne Art School and Museum on scholarship where he studied figure drawing, portraiture and landscape painting.  The founder of David Dale Designs, Dale also taught by invitation, Complex Interiors and Professional Practices in the School of Fine Art at Ball State. Dale paints landscapes in pastel and oil, both outdoors and in his studio.  He also designs and handcrafts signature picture frames to complement his paintings.  His paintings hang in corporate, museum, private and public collections.


    Rose Court
    125 E Charles
    Rose Court is pleased to feature the art work of Muncie's noted architect Anthony J. "Tony" Costello, FAIA.  You may have heard or read about Tony regarding his work in architecture or his mission trips to Haiti, but you may not know that he is also an award winning artist.

    Tony has always done sketching as part of his architectural practice but in 2010 decided to submit sketches to Architectural Record's Napkin Sketch competition and continued to submit his sketches each year after.  He won Runner-Up/Professional Award in 2011 and 2012. He is the only person to win awards in two of the three contests held since 2010.  The impetus for this contest is that architects have historically sketched ideas on napkins while having a few drinks with clients or colleagues.  Napkin sketching involves using a 5" x 5"plain white cocktail napkin and sketching on it with a pen.

    This will be Tony's first public exhibit of his napkin sketches. Sketches and watercolors from his travels, including Italy, England, Istanbul, Haiti, New York City, and Boston, will be featured.  Napkin sketches and sketchbook sketches will be available for sale.


    Savage's Ale House
    127 N High
    The Work of Braydee Euliss

    Euliss will exhibit encaustic (hot wax) paintings as well as a series of necklaces. Gallery Manager at Gordy Fine Art & Framing and a Ball State graduate, Euliss holds a BFA in Sculpture. Her vast 3-D background, coupled with an innate preoccupation with repurposing, informs her continued use of non-traditional and found media.

    Cornerstone Center for The Arts

    520 E. Main

    “Sarah Shaffer: Life in Plastic

    Join Cornerstone Center for Arts for First Thursday on June 2, 2016 for an opening reception and art show featuring the art of Sarah Shaffer. The show titled “Life in Plastic” explores society’s monumental impact through the form of our tiniest role models.Beyond objectification and the weight of the world's expectations, creating this body of work was a very personal journey for Sarah. She created these paintings using one of her daughter's dolls as a model with the color palette of her childhood memory. These pieces embody her own path to define her self-image and the desire to not pass along physical insecurities to future generations.

    Each piece is a depiction of a doll, focusing on a portion of the body and recreated on a large scale. This collection of acrylic paintings portrays the objectification and unrealistic expectations placed upon women. We perpetuate these damaging standards in our interactions with others and within ourselves. The titles are inspired by comments made to or about women in judgement of their appearance, their choices, and their actions.

    The opening reception will take place from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Cornerstone Art Gallery on the second floor of Cornerstone Center for the Arts. The show will be on display and open to the public throughout the month of June.

    Sarah, a visual arts instructor at Cornerstone as well as a commissioned artist, is a native of Indiana, grew up in Fort Wayne with A love of art from an early age. Sarah is a graduate of Ball State University’s School of Art, with a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in metalsmithing earned in 2007. Her senior show titled "Playtime's Over," explored women's issues by combining Barbie dolls with precious metal to create conceptual jewelry.

    Nearly 10 years after Sarah's senior project, she has revisited Barbie and some of the corresponding themes of objectification and unrealistic expectations through the form of painting rather than jewelry. In the near decade that has passed, Sarah has become a mother and wishes to confront these themes for the betterment of the next generation.

    For more information about the show, call Cornerstone’s Department of Education & Communication at 766-281-9503, ext. 23.

The park was created as a gateway to Downtown Muncie and will offer new outdoor opportunities for the surrounding businesses and organizations.
