    The Artist Within
    313 S Walnut

    The Artist Within will feature the third social network exhibit, titled "Indiana".

    Participating artists will be using social media to spread the word about this show and its theme. The first two exhibits, "Robots" and "Birds and Words", were a huge success and we are certain you will enjoy this one too. Local artists in all mediums will be exhibiting and selling work that they have created to explore the theme of Indiana. Come see what the Hoosier state means to these artists of all ages.

     

    Gallery 308
    308 E Main

    The ArtCamp Show featuring the talents of more than 45 young artists opens at Gallery 308 August 1. Many of the cities young artists have been busy this summer participating in an Art Camp sponsored by Art Mart and The Artist Within. The campers took a trip "Under the Sea: Exploring the Oceans through Art".  Held at The Artist Within, this summer saw six weeks of clay camps and one week of fine arts camp.

    Karen Fisher, owner of Art Mart and longtime ArtCamp instructor, said her students aged 5 to 13 created traditional Japanese fish prints, a school of origami fish, 3-D papier-mâché puffer fish, and a mural of sea creatures. Artist Within owner Bob Hartley stated, "It is really fun watching them grow and to follow their artistic growth. The excitement the kids bring is what keeps this old art teacher eager for the return of Summer ArtCamps."

    The campers have drawn, painted, and potted during their underwater exploration.  Fisher added, "The highpoint for each of the young artists is the thrill of seeing their artistic creations professionally hung and lit in a gallery."  The culmination of their art camp experience will be an exhibit at Gallery 308 with the First Thursday reception.   The opening reception for the new exhibit will be held from 5 to 8 p.m. The public is welcome.

    The gallery is open Friday from 3:00 – 7:00 pm and Saturday from 12:30 – 5:00pm.  Admission is free. The ArtCamp Show continues through August 3.

    Gallery 308, located at 308 East Main in downtown Muncie,  is a 501(c)(3) community art gallery which exists to provide exhibition space for artists, encourage innovative work and serve the community as a cultural and educational resource.

    Gordy Fine Art & Framing Co.
    224 E Main

    Faulkner Watercolors August Exhibit  - Jim Faulkner is one of the best known artists of east central Indiana, and his interests and reputation as a watercolor painter extend throughout the state and beyond. But it is Indiana that has received most of the artist's attention for the past two decades. Since 1990, Faulkner has been accepted twenty times into the famed Hoosier Salon exhibits, winning six awards. In the same period, ten painting have been juried into Watercolor Society of Indiana exhibits, earning seven awards. Minnetrista Annual and Hoosier Heritage have provided three awards each, with a Merit Award in 2013 at the latter. Faulkner has taught numerous workshops, and also taught in the Ball State University Art Dept., where he first met Brian and Genny Gordy, as students. Brian credits his former professor with instilling the beauty of transparent watercolors into his art career. Faulkner received both his own undergraduate and master's degrees at BSU.

    Faulkner will exhibit new paintings that were done in the fall, winter and spring seasons of 2012-13. A lover of his chosen medium, the artist offers, "As always, I was primarily interested in wonderful images all around me, and my futile attempts to capture that image – but with the added beauty of watercolor paint on rag paper." Opening with a First Thursday reception on August 1, 2013, the show continues through the end of the month. The artist will speak about his work and answer questions, beginning at 6:15 PM. Light refreshments will be served and the public is invited to attend.

    Interesting notes about this Muncie artist include the fact that Faulkner was an abstract painter for 15 years before returning to his roots of realist watercolors. He was also a dedicated sculptor, and taught Brian and Genny – and many others, including nephew, Steve Clark, the art of bronze casting in the 1970's. He and his wife, Eleanor, live on a small farmstead outside Muncie with various cats and dogs. Jim's studio is in their restored barn.

    Corrinne LeNeave Installation in Nook Gallery - Alexandra Corrinne LeNeave will exhibit installation pieces in the Nook gallery at Gordy's. A recent graduate of Ball State University, she holds a BFA in Video Art and Electronic Media. Her work examines object ownership as it flows between generations in a family.

    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 www.gordyframing.com.

    Space in Motion
    Twelve dancers, twelve unique environments. Space in Motion brings together the talents of Ball State University’s architecture and dance students for a one-time performance in downtown Muncie as part of First Thursday Arts Walk on March 3. From 6:00-7:00pm, twelve Ball State dance students will perform, each occupying a unique environment created by one of twelve Ball State architecture students. The performance will take place at GearBox:Muncie, the former Cintas building located at the intersection of Jackson and Madison streets. Admission is free and music will be provided by Department of Theater and Dance musician, Adam Crawley.

    The project was organized by Ball State Architecture Professor George Elvin with Dance Professor Susan Koper and IDIA Lab Director John Fillwalk. “Space in Motion promises to be a very unique experience,” Elvin said. "The students are merging design, dance and music in one of Muncie’s most interesting new art spaces. I think anyone with an interest in any of those things will be glad they came.”

    The Muncie Arts and Culture Council is thrilled to have been given an early opportunity to help activate the GearBox space while simultaneously facilitating First Thursday events for artists and groups who might otherwise find it difficult to participate in this Downtown Muncie tradition.

    Gordy Fine Art & Framing Co.
    224 E Main
    Radicle Traces

    Gordy Fine Art and Framing Company will celebrate First Thursday, March 3, 5-8 pm with an opening reception for Radicle Traces, paintings by Kaylee Dalton. The exhibit will feature several new paintings by the artist who will be on hand to engage with viewers and answer questions. Light refreshments will be served and the public is invited to attend.

    Appropriate for March, Dalton’s work is a whimsical interpretation of the garden landscape with a focus on “the ever longed for spring season and its perpetual fascination of new growth.” Bulbs, seeds, and blooms, both above and beneath the soil, have all found a home in her most recent work. Exploiting the rare combination of encaustic wax and water media, Dalton clearly embraces strong textural differences, reflective of the various surfaces often found in nature

    Dalton received her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Painting from Ball State University in 2008. She was the 2006 recipient of the Watercolor Society of Indiana scholarship. While attending Ball State University, she received five painting awards, including three purchase awards. Dalton studied at the University of Miami, Florida for a Masters of Fine Arts in Painting. She has shown in over 25 group exhibits including Art Basel Miami. She is a member of the Northern Indiana Artists and recently received the Carolyn Jagodits Memorial Award at their latest exhibition. Locally, Dalton was awarded third place at the Minnetrista Open Space: Art About the Land juried show in 2015.

    At 6:15, the artist will speak briefly about her work. Guests are encouraged to ask questions and learn more about the artist as well as her unique pairing of artistic media.

    Gordy Fine Art and Framing Company promotes talented artists from East Central Indiana and offers expert design and craftsmanship for framing and displaying treasured family possessions and works of art. “Radicle Traces” may also be viewed during regular business hours: Monday through Friday, 9 am – 5:30 pm, Saturday, 9 am – 3 pm.  Gordy Fine Art and Framing Company is located at 224 East Main Street, next door to Muncie Civic Theatre.  For more information, visit www.gordyframing.com or call 765-284-8422.
