    Gallery 308
    308 E Main
    K-12 Juried Student Art Show

    The talents and imagination of 151 young artists will be on display in a countywide exhibit when Gallery 308 opens its 11th annual K-12 Juried Student Art Show. The public is invited to stop by and see what our young local artists are doing. There’s a free reception for the show’s opening on First Thursday.

    Dave Franklin, Gallery 308 board president and member of the committee that organized this year’s show, said, “Each year I am amazed at the skill level of the young artists.  This year we received several entries from several schools that are participating for the first time.” Students from 14 city and county schools and 18 teachers are involved in the show. All 151 entries were accepted into the juried process. The students’ artwork will be displayed at the Gallery through the end of March. 

    The exhibit is made possible by major funding from Trim Masters Charitable Foundation. Other sponsors include: First Merchants Bank, Art Mart, Indiana Public Radio and Muncie Civic Theatre

    The gallery’s hours are Fridays from 3-7pm and Saturdays from 12:30 – 5:00pm.  Admission is free. The show continues through March 27.

     

    Gordy Fine Art & Framing Co.
    224 E Main
    Midwest Landscape: New Paintings by Carol Strockwasson

    Award-winning artist Carol Strockwasson will be featured during the month of March at Gordy Fine Art & Framing Company in downtown Muncie. An opening reception will take place on Thursday, March 6, 2015, from 5 to 8 PM. The artist will briefly speak and answer questions from the audience beginning at 6:15 PM.

    A dedicated plein air painter, Strockwasson regularly sets up her easel and pastels in fields and woods of east central Indiana, mindful of the sunlight as it exposes certain features and allows long shadows on others. Pastels have a long and honored place in the art history of this region, and the hardworking Strockwasson is proud to be part of the current chapter.

    “This body of work is principally about the pastel medium, expressing the vibrancy and permanence of the pigments,” explains the artist. Included in the exhibit will be several paintings from her “Willow Series,” which is an ongoing collection of paintings that focus on a single tree and the effects of light and color on it during different painting sessions. The artist is part of the local Wasson Nursery family, so her affinity for trees, plants and landscapes is understandable.

    Strockwasson maintains an impressive exhibition and award schedule. She will be a featured artist at the Door County Plein Air Festival in Wisconsin in July 2015, and was recently included in, “Ohio Prairies: A Year in the Life,” a show at the Springfield Museum of Art, Springfield, Ohio.

    The artist will speak briefly about her work and answer questions beginning at 6:15 PM. Light refreshments will be served, and the public is invited to attend. There will be art-related activities for both children and adults.

     

    Muncie Civic Theatre
    216 E Main
    K-12 Juried Student Art Show Awards Presentation

    At 6:30pm, awards will be presented for Gallery 308’s K-12 Juried Student Art Show and more than $1,800 will be distributed to the students and schools.

    In addition to announcing the prize winners at the opening, the Gallery will announce the name of the school that has won the 2015 Y.B. Williams Art Supply Award. The $500 cash award is given to the school whose students earned the most points for their arts involvement. Dave Franklin explained that students earn points for their school by attending art gallery openings, visiting museums and other art venues. “The school with the most points wins the $500 award which is to be used by the school to purchase art supplies,” he said. The name of the winning school will be announced at the opening reception. Sutton Elementary School was last year’s winner.

    Judges for the juried show were Mary Ann Rahe, (primary school artists) and Bob Hartley (secondary school artists).
