    Asian Infusion

    Join Cornerstone Center for Arts for First Thursday on April 2, 2015, for an opening reception and art show featuring the art of Leon and Aidan Crosby. The show entitled “Asian Infusion” is an exploration into art forms originating in traditional East Asian culture infused with a modern perspective.

    Leon and Aidan, a father son duo, are excited to share their individual and collaborative efforts for the first time together. The collection includes mixed media paintings featuring modern influences such as graffiti and pop art utilizing unconventional styling.

    The opening reception will take place from 5:00 to 7:00 pm at the Cornerstone Art Gallery on the second floor of Cornerstone Center for the Arts. The show will be on display throughout the month of April.

    Leon, a visual arts instructor at Cornerstone, was born in Toledo, Ohio and started his journey in art at a young age. His biggest inspirations come from Japanese art, American Graffiti, and comic book graphics. He has received both formal and informal instruction from the Toledo Museum of Art and the University of Toledo and regularly displays and sells his art throughout the Muncie community. In addition to teaching at Cornerstone, Leon has volunteered his time at Sutton Elementary and has several private lesson students.

    At 10 years old, Aidan has a passion for art unlike many.  He began showing interest in art at 4 years of age. Aidan suffered from a chronic illness as a child, which is what led him to begin classes in visual arts at Cornerstone Center for the Arts. This was a reprieve for him from ongoing illness and it soon became something he could look forward to. A few years later he showed more interest and got involved with classes at Ball State University. Aidan is quite inspired by many art styles, but is highly attracted to the Japanese animation styles especially those displayed in Pokemon. Aidan likes to create in general, often playing video games that allow him to design his own characters and his own worlds. He is an energetic and imaginative child and it shows when he is playing with other children as well when he creates art.

Peer victim advocates will be on site to talk about the artwork and refreshments will be provided.

    Twistable Perceptions from Inside the Corn Crib

    A Muncie native, Terri Gillentine graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the San Francisco Art Institute. The artist also creates artworks and performances under the name of Lucky Ace Everlast.  The April exhibition is a body of work that records impressions of wave patterns that morph into microcosmic organisms.

     

    Gordy Fine Art & Framing Co.
    224 E Main
    SKETCH: The Art of Study

    Brian and Genny Gordy met in art class at Ball State University. Years later, they purchased what is now Gordy Fine Art & Framing in downtown Muncie. Braydee Euliss, also a BSU art graduate joined them in 2004. The GFAF team may be small, but their collective passion for building a community of art appreciators couldn't be bigger. Monthly rotating exhibits and artist talks raise awareness and increase the accessibility of various art forms in their gallery. In an effort to pursue this passion more thoroughly, they have designed an entire exhibit around the idea of studying art.

    For the month of April, Gordy Fine Art & Framing Company will focus on the practice and process of creating art. The exhibit, SKETCH: The Art of Study is a group show featuring an array of preparatory work that represents what sketching is and can be for artists who work in both 2 and 3 dimensions with all types of materials. Thirteen participating artists will be introduced at the First Thursday opening reception on April 2, 2015, at 6:15 PM.  The public is encouraged to attend and ask questions about the exhibit and the different methods employed by each to create the various pieces.

    Exhibiting artists include Scott Anderson, Hannah Barnes, Josh Cogeshall, Eric Ernstberger, Brian Gordy, David Johnson, Paul Laseau, Alan Patrick, Mary Ann Rahe, Kristen Reeves, Jacinda Russell, Janice Shimizu, and Juli Thorson. While each artist uses sketching techniques, patrons will see both similarities and great differences in the final works of art. A sketching station will be set up for patrons to try their hands at drawing a likeness.  Art teachers will be on hand to encourage and assist participants.

    Experimental Watercolor Part II
    Work by Carol Burt and East Washington Academy art students. Our purpose in creating these paintings was to focus on watercolor techniques that allowed us to create a center of interest by concentrating on the space surrounding the focal point.

    Unraveled
    Work by Gabrielle Graber, BSU BFA, transitioning to Alfred University for MFA. “My work deals with the anxiety of ideologies that I have internalized from society’s issues of health, gender, and sexuality. Through this understanding each figure is an auto-biographical reference that connects my inner thoughts into a large scale reality.”

    Mun(See)
    Mun(See) is a photographic interpretation of Muncie's first 150 years through the components that make it a resonant culture. Composed by Ball State University's Landscape Architecture ‘Design with Photography’ elective, this exhibition encompasses the sights and textures of what it means to be a member of the Muncie community.

    Woodcraft
    Work by Abraham Arregui, BSU 4th year Architecture student. “Spoons, bowls, knives, plates, cutting boards, etc. A semester spent carving and exercising my 3 dimensional perceptions.”

    Side Investigations
    Work by Eric Lawler, BSU 3rd year Architecture student. “This project investigates the immaterial side of architecture. It defines immateriality as specific thoughts, feelings, ideas, drawings, images, concepts, discussions, or debates that are remotely architectural. It dwells on their potential and is determined to project their possibility.”

    Design Build Interventions at MML
    Work by BSU 4th year Architecture students under instructor Tim Gray. A group of ten fourth year architecture students will be creating four separate site specific installations at the Muncie makes Lab. The projects offer a range of sculptural installations using a range of re-purposed materials and dealing with themes such as reflection, material and light.

This Sunday

  • 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
    Food and drinks / All ages
