  • March's First Thursday (full listing) 5pm to 8pm @ Downtown Muncie
    Shannon Mehaffey at Cornerstone Center for the Arts GindhART at Madjax, 2nd floor "Our House: Muncie Fieldhouse, a community gathering place" at Gordy Fine Art and Framing, Co. Leslie Price, “In the Footsteps of Our Ancestors," at Muncie Map Co. Blues Jam at Valhalla

    Cornerstone Center for the Arts
    520 E. Main
    Join Cornerstone Center for the Arts on Thursday, March 5 for the opening reception of A Never-Ending Quest featuring the art of Shannon Mehaffey. The reception will take place in the Judith Barnes Memorial Gallery on the second floor of Cornerstone from 5 to 7 p.m. in conjunction with March’s First Thursday events.

    This collection of new mixed-media artworks by artist Shannon Mehaffey is a culmination of new processes and themes the artist has discovered through experimentation, meditation, and dedication to the study of art. Inspired by the fantastical landscapes, items, and stories found within the digital realm of video game franchises such as “Skyrim,” “Death Stranding,” and “Fallout.”  The artist has dedicated her artistic practice to exploring new art mediums and processes. Born out of the artist's long lost love of analog darkroom photography, this body of work is about learning to control the alchemy of the papers and inks using solvents, moving ink around the page in a totally uncontrolled manner, and finding order within the chaos.

    Shannon Mehaffey is a Visual Artist living in Muncie, Indiana. She earned her BFA in Photography in Fine Arts at Ball State University in 2010, she currently teaches Watercolors, Drawing, Landscape Painting, and Mixed Media at Cornerstone Center for the Arts. In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her partner, her two dogs, binging Netflix, and playing video games.

    A Never-Ending Quest will be on display and open to the public in the Judith Barnes Memorial Gallery throughout the month of March.

    For more information about the exhibition call Cornerstone’s Department of Education & Communication at 765-281- 9503, ext. 123 or visit cornerstonearts.org.

    The Fickle Peach (21+)
    117 E. Charles

    Madeline Douglass will show her work at The Fickle Peach. Madeline grew up in Muncie, Indiana, and then attended university at the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) in Savannah, Georgia. She majored in screenwriting, but held close to her original love of drawing.

    This collection is a few of her studies of human anatomy. They are largely mixed media – including conte crayon, charcoal, watercolor, colored pencil, and ink.

    In these pieces, Madeline observed and attempted to capture the grace and fluidity of the human form. She sat for several hours, just about every Friday and Saturday, for three years, staring at naked people, doing her damnedest to replicate every little nook and cranny. She was forced to squint at these poor models as her professors tried to get her to see shadow shapes and highlights. Madeline had her own personal style of drawing ripped apart and rebuilt to someone else’s standards.

    “In the Footsteps of Our Ancestors” is the first in a series of exhibitions by Leslie Price to examine the roots of culture and our relation to the past. The “Celtic Roots” show features images of Scotland- from where my ancestors originated- before they migrated to Ireland. Perhaps yours did too. Here you will get a chance to walk the ancient passageways of far off castles, explore a rare class of Neolithic henge monument, and meander down the street that inspired J.K. Rowling’s Diagon Alley. Come and follow in the footsteps of our ancestors- through the winding green hills and lush river valleys, past the castle gate and up the spiral staircase cut out of solid stone. Adventure awaits! Come celebrate St. Patrick’s Day early with Leslie and the nice folks at the Muncie Map Company. You might even make some new friends. 

    Leslie Price is an independent Historic Preservation Specialist in Muncie, Indiana. She has a Master of Science in Historic Preservation from Ball State University with minors in urban planning and energy studies, and an Associate of Applied Science in hands-on building preservation from Belmont Technical College.

    Where the Wild Things Are, Featuring the Art of Mary Beth Reinhard:
    Join Cornerstone Center for the Arts on Thursday, February 6 for the opening reception of Where the Wild Things Are featuring the photography of Mary Beth Reinhard. The reception will take place in the Judith Barnes Memorial Gallery on the second floor of Cornerstone from 5 to 7 p.m. in conjunction with February’s First Thursday events.

    Where the Wild Things Are, is a collection of North American animals found in their natural environment. Giving the animals the respect they deserve allows Reinhard to get close enough to develop a relationship with each animal which is often displayed in her images. From the vulnerability of the Deer, wisdom of the Raven, and rugged majesty of the Moose, it’s almost impossible to look at these images without feeling a connection to the featured creature. 

    Every animal on our wild planet has its own distinct personality. The objective of Reinhard’s photography is to capture the personality of each animal as observed in the Wild. With a deep respect for wildlife, she often sits in awe of the many creatures which surround us. 

    Mary Beth Reinhard, an Indiana native, has had a passion for the great outdoors and our animal friends from an early age. An adventurer at heart, Mary Beth enjoys scuba diving, snorkeling, sky diving, backpacking our National Parks, and many other outdoor pursuits. Mary Beth is a graduate of Ball State University with Master’s Degrees in Clinical Mental Health and Rehabilitation Counseling. She is a Certified Naturalist and enjoys studying our vast natural environment and its inhabitants. She resides in a log cabin in the woods just outside of Muncie, and is currently employed as a Mental Health Therapist in Private Practice. She also teaches Yoga and various dance classes at Cornerstone Center for the Arts.

    Where the Wild Things Are will be on display and open to the public in the Judith Barnes Memorial Gallery throughout the month of February.

    For more information about the exhibition call Cornerstone’s Department of Education & Communication at 765-281- 9503, ext. 123 or visit cornerstonearts.org.
