    Canan Commons
    500 S. Walnut St.
    Lighting Ceremony Announces the Opening of the “Rainbow Garden” at Canan Commons:

    Community Enhancement Projects (CEP) and the City of Muncie are pleased to announce a public lighting ceremony to celebrate the opening of the “Rainbow Garden” lights at Canan Commons in Downtown Muncie. The ceremony will take place as part of May’s First Thursday celebration on May 4, 2023 at 8 PM at Canan Commons, 500 S. Walnut. Brief remarks will be made by Mayor Daniel Ridenour and representatives of CEP. 

    The “Rainbow Garden” is a light installation designed to contribute a significant addition to the aesthetic landscape of Muncie’s downtown area while also providing necessary pathway lighting at Canan Commons. In brief, the eight light poles circumnavigating Canan Commons have been refurbished and repurposed to support a colored acrylic cylinder and LED lighting. Each of the eight cylinders are a different color, with progressive degrees of saturation from top to bottom. During the day, the sun will illuminate the colorful cylinders, while at night the cylinders will glow with color while also providing ambient lighting for the Commons’ perimeter walkway. Thus, the “Rainbow Garden” project is both an aesthetic installation as well as a functioning lighting system. 

    The “Rainbow Garden” at Canan Commons is a project of Community Enhancement Projects (CEP), with design by Jeanne Zeigler. The mission of CEP is to foster through beautification efforts a cooperative environment wherein area citizens, government, industry, and organizations continue to enhance and improve our quality of life for today’s community and future generations. The “Rainbow Garden” project aligns with this mission by creating a beautiful, unique and significant addition to Muncie’s downtown landscape that will help to improve the quality of life for all residents of our area.

    For more information about the “Rainbow Garden” and CEP, please visit www.cepmuncie.org.

    Gordy Fine Art & Framing Co. 
    224 E. Main
    Brian Gordy, Watercolors: 
    Gordy Fine Art and Framing Company will celebrate First Thursday with an opening reception for Watercolors by former owner Brian Gordy.  Brian’s paintings were last featured here in 2016.  Refreshments will be served, and the public is invited to attend. 

    "Brian Gordy's art will always enjoy a privileged place on the gallery walls here," said owners Barbara and Carl Schafer.  "Those who know his work will recognize his longtime concern for the natural environment and wildlife habitat."

    Gordy paints with watercolor, preferring it to other kinds of painting because the thin transparent paint saturates the paper in different degrees to conjure the image.  In watercolor, the paper and paint become one, rather than layering up on a board or canvas the way oil or acrylic paints do. With skillful strokes watercolor paint migrates into the fibers of the paper and images emerge out of the white paper like the artist is a wizard rather than a painter. 

    "I am known for paintings of turtles,” said Gordy.  “My interest in turtles started with the way I observed light playing on their shells. Increasingly I would appreciate their resilience in poor environmental conditions and how their presence can indicate the health of the ecosystem.  When I go into nature to look for them, I also find erosion caused by fast flowing rivers that have exposed root networks of different trees.  The intricacy I find there is endlessly mysterious both as a place that supports life and the compositions they offer me as a painter.” 

    The exhibit will be on view with works for sale in the gallery and at gordyframing.com through May 27, 2023. 

    Gordy Fine Art and Framing Company promotes talented artists, provides appraisals, restores antique frames, and offers expert design and craftsmanship for framing and displaying treasured family possessions and works of art. Business hours: Monday through Friday, 9 am – 5:30 pm, Saturday, 10 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

    Muncie Artist’s Guild
    Various locations
    Pati Sparks is the Muncie Artists Guild's Artist of the Month for May 2023.
    As a professional artist, Pati (Bell) Sparks specializes in portraits and landscapes in oil and pastel from her studio north of Sulphur Springs, Indiana, where she also teaches art privately. After a successful career as an mural artist in Indianapolis, she has returned to Henry County, where she lives in the Victorian farm house where she grew up. 

    Art has been a large part of who Pati is from a very young age. She won her first award at age seven, and received her first portrait commissions while still in her teens. Her inspirations come in a large part from her passions for travel and people. She is a naturally gifted artist, developing her talent by studying fine art in various museums and galleries, and by experimentation. 

    Her paintings have won numerous awards, including “Best of Show” in juried exhibits in Indiana and North Carolina. Her murals have been featured on the cover of national magazines such as Better Home and Gardens. She has been listed in the fine art section of “Who’s Who in Interior Design. Her murals may be seen publicly in such well recognized venues as James Whitcomb Riley Hospital for Children in Indianapolis, and Medical College of Georgia Children’s Hospital in Augusta Georgia, as well as Kona Jack’s restaurant in Indianapolis.  Her paintings and murals are part of numerous private collections in Indiana and the Southeast US. 

    Pati will be displaying her work at the following businesses for the month of May:

    Cornerstone Center for the Arts
    520 E. Main
    Cornerstone Center for the Arts will host several events for July’s First Thursday.

    The featured artist for July is Michael Eldon DuQuette, who will be exhibiting his work in the Judith Barnes Memorial Gallery on the 2nd floor. 

    Mixed Media Artist, Michael Eldon DuQuette, was born in San Antonio, Texas, lived in Chicago for 20 years and moved to Muncie in 2008. His art career began in the mid 1980's, beginning with a representational style, moving through impressionism and cubism to abstract expressionism with realism mixed in. DuQuette’s work reflects his ceaseless interest in the exploration of different mediums and materials, a philosophy he adopted and developed while studying at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. He continually moves from one medium to the other and has created works in mediums such as: collage, fiber, sculpture, oil/acrylic paintings, found objects, watercolor, oil pastel, photography, sound, video, performance art, installation and digital art.

    DuQuette is a rare artist displaying convincing accomplishment both in abstract expressionism and a kind of "funk-neo-cubism" with which he creates portraits, cityscapes/landscapes and sculptures in a decidedly off beat style visually provocative, compositionally exciting and wild with color. Over time, it has become his mission to share the creative experience with as many people as possible using every tool he can find. He works to demystify art and to break through barriers. He hopes to touch the imagination of children and adults alike.  

    Cornerstone’s Artist-in-Residence is Debra Gindhart Dragoo. She shares her love of art and repurposing with ECI and beyond. She will feature her Green Glam Studio PRIVATE COLLECTION again. Her artist mantra is “Real Babes Recycle, RE-use, RE-claim, RE-new" this mantra moves through her Green Glam Studio jewelry.

    Muncie Artist’s Guild
    Various locations
    The Muncie Artist Guild’s “Artist of the Month” for August is Shonet Martin.   

    Shonet Martin's bio: I am a Ball State graduate with a B.S. in Art Education and MA in Art. I have taught in public school, but my passion was working with VSA Arts, an arts organization for children and adults with disabilities. 

    I LOVE color. My work is a collage of shapes and patterns that create an image. I begin by tearing tissue paper for the main images. The colors I lean to tend to play off of each other. Once the main images are laid down, I embellish with small geometric shapes in patterns of color. If my subject matter is a person the face is always left void of features. This is so the viewer can bring their own emotion to the work. 

    Shonet’s artwork will be on display during the month of June at the following locations:
    Northwest Bank, 110 E Charles St. Muncie, IN 47305
    Old National Bank, 2401 S Madison St. Muncie, IN 47302

    Muncie Mystery!
    (begins at Canan Commons and continues throughout the downtown area)
    Downtown Development and Ball State’s Office of Community Engagement present Muncie Mystery! We need your "hand" solving this year's Muncie Mystery! Join us downtown during September's First Thursday to question suspects, look for clues and - hopefully - solve the case!

    What we know so far: The Addams Family’s beloved Helping Hand, Thing, is missing! The butler, Lurch, suspects that someone in the family knows where Thing is because there was evidence from each of them left in the same room where his empty box was found, the library of Addams Manor. 

    Pick up your Crime Tracker form and map at Canan Commons beginning at 5:30 p.m., then visit participating downtown businesses to hear alibis from the suspects and look over the evidence. Turn in your guesses at Canan Commons by 7:30 p.m. because the big reveal is set for 8 p.m. on the Canan Commons stage.

    Sleuths with correct guesses will be entered into a drawing for great downtown prizes! (You must be present at reveal to win!)

    Muncie Mystery is hosted by Ball State's Office of Community Engagement, Muncie Downtown Development Partnership, Ivy Tech Community College, and Muncie Civic Theatre.

    @garfieldfrommemory is the guest artist at first Thursday art show in September 9/7 dont miss this !! Kate Parnell is 43 years old, and since February 24, 2019 she has drawn and painted Garfield (the cartoon cat) every day. She lives and works in her parents’ house in Richmond, Virginia, and travels around the country doing small pop up markets where she sells paintings and gets to meet some of her 18,000+ Garfield-loving instagram followers. While her subject matter is deceptively simple, drawing Garfield from memory saved her life, becoming not only a creative outlet but also a source of income, stability and confidence after many years of battling depression. These Garfield drawings and paintings form a body of work spanning four and a half years, reflecting not only her taste but the incredible sensibilities of her followers, whose Garf commissions of album covers, portraits, pets, inside jokes and erotica have “kept the lights on” and kept the project going. It is a kind of self-portrait, not only of the artist but of a community of people who find joy in humor, creativity, and love for a fat orange icon of the past 45 years, in both the tenuous space of a social media platform and in the real world.

    Parnell is also attempting to become the Guinness World Record holder for most tattoos of a single cartoon character. She has 32 Garfield tattoos, and needs 24 more to take the title. Like her daily Garfing, the process of building her Garf tattoo collection has given her a joyous momentum and introduced her to artists around the world. Screening at the show will be filmmaker Michael Arcos’ documentary short “Orange From Memory,” which offers a glimpse into the world of Garfield From Memory and its incredibly orange obsession. This 14 minute piece will be screened at multiple film festivals in the fall.

    Patterns in Nature: the Art of Aaron Nicholson:
    Gordy Fine Art and Framing is proud to highlight the art of Muncie resident Aaron Nicholson. Nicholson’s art reflects physical patterns found in the natural world as well as behavioral patterns in the way humans relate to nature, both on earth and our observations and speculations about the universe. The party will be on First Thursday, September 7, from 5 – 8 pm with live music by Luke Mitchell and Joshua Vance. The artist will be on hand. Light refreshments will be served, and the public is invited to attend.

    Nicholson is a sculptor and a painter. His most ambitious work uses ancient techniques of pouring molten metal into sand molds. When he does this, the act of making art is itself an expression of his relationship to natural materials. Many of the sculptures in the exhibition were made this way.   

    At 6:15, Nicholson will speak about his work and the techniques he uses to make it.The exhibit will remain on view through September 30. 

    At Muncie’s recent Fire Up Downtown event in early August, Nicholson organized an Iron Pour where he fired a 2400-degree furnace to melt iron which he then poured into molds to make art. It was an extreme demonstration of an ancient technology that we rarely get to see. In addition to the show at Gordy, many of the castings at the Fire Up event will be on view the same evening at the Muncie Visitors Bureau at 410 S. Walnut St. in downtown Muncie. 

    Gordy Fine Art and Framing Company promotes talented artists and offers expert design and craftsmanship for framing and displaying treasured family possessions and works of art. Summer Invitational may also be viewed through the end of August during regular business hours: Monday through Friday, 9 am – 5:30 pm, Saturday, 10 am – 3 pm.

    More info about the artists:
    Larry Fentz 
    Larry was born and raised in central Indiana. His art career started in the mid 1970’s along with his passion for watercolor painting.  Larry worked several years as a technical draftsman, artist, and designer for commercial design studios in Indianapolis. In 1983 he moved to Muncie to work as a staff artist at Paws Inc., home of the Garfield comic strip.  For 33 years he was an integral part of the comic strip production and merchandising art as an inker and airbrush artist. 

    Larry has pursued watercolor painting for over 40 years. He is considered a transparent watercolor artist on the contemporary side of traditional. He is a member of the Hoosier Salon, American Watercolor Society (AWS), and the Kentucky Watercolor Society (KWS). He is a Signature member of the Watercolor Society of Indiana (WSI) and a lifetime Signature member of the Whiskey Painters of America.

    Martin Price
    In the fall of Marty’s third year at Taylor University, he saw for the first time in his life a pot being thrown on the wheel. He realized then that clay was what he wanted to learn. Marty got his master’s degree in art education from Ball State University.  He taught high school art for 29 years retiring from Wapahani High School. In 2008 Marty and his wife spent the winter in Colorado specifically to learn the raku technique from potters in Colorado Springs.  His current work is balanced with raku and high fired functional as well as occasional wood fired pottery. Marty is an Indiana Artisan who has worked in clay for more than 40 years. 

    Kerry Shaw
    Growing up in the Midwest, Kerry had an interest in life outdoors and drawing from a very early age. He attended Ringling College of Art and Design in Sarasota, Florida where he studied fine art and graphic design. Later, he graduated from Ball State University where he studied graphic design and photography. He enjoyed a 22-year career with Ball Corporation as a designer and director of communications, followed by a 20-year career with Anderson University as a designer and director of publications. In addition, he has operated his own design firm, shawDesign, since 1996. 

    After retiring from Anderson University, he began to paint again. Capturing the light on a face or landscape of interest has always been the driving force of his paintings. Kerry’s memberships include the Indiana Plein Air Painters Association (IPAPA), Hoosier Salon and the Santa Rita Art League. He also paints with the Tucson Barrio Painters and various other well-known artists. Kerry and his wife Donna reside in Muncie, Indiana and winter in Green Valley, Arizona.

    Muncie Artist’s Guild
    Various locations
    Laurie Lunsford is our Muncie Artists Guild's Artist of the Month for November 2023. 

    Laurie's Artist Statement/Bio: 
    I love everything about the outdoors....and people. Plein air painting provides the opportunity to paint not only what is in front of me, but also how I feel about it, using all of my senses. Painting portraits provides the joy of looking into another person's face many minutes at a time. Using pastels, if they were not so messy, is my favorite medium because of their vibrant and pure color. I also like to flow with watercolors. I have taught art in elementary schools. Now that I am retired, I enjoy interacting with small groups of kids, not only through art, but poetry, games, and gardening. Since retirement, I have written and illustrated ten children's picture books. (All of them are on Amazon) "The Solar Eclipse is Coming" was just released, and is very timely in this season. 

    Listing of works on display: 
    Laurie Lunsford "Three on a Sled" Pastels 23x27 $400  
    Laurie Lunsford "Geraniums" Watercolor and Acrylic 19x23 $250  
    Laurie Lunsford "Dutro Ernst Bouquet" Pastels 23x27 $450 
    Laurie Lunsford "Tipping Vase" Pastels 17x21 $350  
    Laurie Lunsford "Plein Air at Oakhurst Gardens" Pastels 18x22 $250 

    Her work will be shown at the following locations: 
    Northwest Bank (E Charles), Old National Bank (S Madison), Rosebud Coffee House, Vera Mae's Bistro, and Parlour Salon

This exhibition will highlight the personal artwork of the many artists who are helping to guide and educate both students and the community through radical jewelry maker parties, workshops, and lectures about the process of ethical metalsmithing.

    RADICAL MAKERS will be on exhibition for the month of November, with an opening on November 2nd from 5-8 PM. Alongside the exhibition opening, the Ball State University Metals Guild will have a selection of handmade jewelry for sale.
