    Minding the Gaps in the Foundation of the Sensual

    Drawing and paintings, step aside. Sculpture will take over the gallery at Gordy Fine Art & Framing for the month of May, thanks to Ball State University art instructor, Chet Geiselman. The artist describes himself as, “a creative problem solver, a collector and arranger of objects and information, a fabricator of visual forms, and a lifelong student of spiritual and human nature.” Bauhaus design has served as a beacon for his personal creations made of wood, steel and “recontextualized found objects.” Geiselman grew up in a small German farming community in southern Indiana. His grandfather was a blacksmith and his father and uncle were welders. Chet learned to weld and build things at a very young age, and eventually earned an MFA in Metalsmithing from Southern Illinois University at Carbondale.

    Guests to the January Salon Show at Gordy’s may recall a pair of framed wood sculptures by Geiselman. Neatly contained in deep white wood cases, undulating wood forms recall smooth-skinned knobby trees, or perhaps, sand dunes held in time. Each of Geiselman’s pieces suggests a formal relationship to the space it inhabits and alludes to the potential functionality of the objects that compose it. The full title of this exhibit is, “Minding the Gaps in the Foundation of the Sensual.”

    The artist will speak briefly about his work and answer questions beginning at 6:15 PM during the opening reception on Thursday, May 7, 2015. Light refreshments will be served, and the public is invited to attend. There will be art-related activities for both children and adults. Gordy Fine Art & Framing is located at 224 East Main Street, next door to Muncie Civic Theatre. For more information, call 765-284-8422, visit Gordy Fine Art & Framing on Facebook, or go to www.gordyframing.com.

    Some of the pieces from Yorktown High School are inspired by Georgia O’Keeffe’s work, and other pieces are pattern-design animals inspired by designs used in art therapy, while a few pieces are still life studies and watercolor batik works.​

    Brittaney Edwards
    BSU BFA thesis student
    Three works from the ongoing series Pandora’s Box that focuses on what monsters or demons that may have had come out into the world after Pandora opened the container. The pieces also makes comparisons to the Christian apocalypse. An example being Famine and Poverty and War and Conquest being identified as two of the four horseman.

    FORMETA, Steven Putt & Daniel Eisinger
    BSU Masters of Architecture thesis students
    FORMETA, a graduate architecture thesis by Steven Putt and Daniel Eisinger, investigates the future of form through several interactive installations that suggest the qualities of dynamic form and authorship. This exploration intends to serve as a basis from which architecture can more easily move towards the realization of dynamic form.

    Darkness Discovered, Nick Dodge
    BSU Masters of Architecture thesis student
    ​Darkness Discovered is an architectural installation that looks to explore the uncertainty that darkness holds on our spatial perception. Visitors are encouraged to slowly explore the essence of light added to the space by interacting. Flashlights are provided for experiencers to explore the light, darkness, shadow and reflections that the space has to discover.

    Additional work by BSU Masters of Architecture thesis student​s Linh Ngo, Huy Nguyen, and Terrance Perdue.

  • Trivia Brawl 8pm to 10pm @ Be Here Now

    Every week, egos are crushed and legends are born at Trivia Brawl, Muncie's longest-running trivia gameshow. Since 2007, Trivia Brawl has been mixing comedy, current events, politics, local pride, pop culture, science, history, an arms race of terrible team names, and alcohol into an Entertainment Nergasm Bonanza™.
     
    - All players are encouraged to gain a competitive advantage by requesting topics
    - Every tenth question is part of our inadvertent quest to discriminate against the deaf, and has players listening to a song and attempting to identify its title, band, and album.
    - The fifth round is a special visual aid round in which the blind are instead at an unfair disadvantage.
    - Booster Charades: The team in last place can optionally play a round of charades on stage for a bonus point while we point and laugh at them
    - Punitive Karaoke: A team deemed worthy of punishment is called upon to read a sheet of lyrics with neither musical accompaniment nor a clue what the song is. All teams can get up to two points if they can correctly guess the band or the title of the song.

    Come and play for free, solo or with a team, and show off your command of all knowledge trivial. Win, and split up $25 in food and drinks. Lose, and possibly get a prize anyway. The games tend to last an hour and a half, unless we go into a Sudden Death Lightning Bloodfeud Overtime Round (of Death)™.

    Sign up before 8:30pm to get a bonus point!

    Sundays at 9pm at Be Here Now
    505 N Dill St., Muncie, IN
