  • Pop Art Presidents - First Thursday at Cornerstone 5pm to 7pm @ Cornerstone Center for the Arts

    Join Cornerstone Center for Arts for First Thursday on August 6, 2015, for an opening reception and art show featuring the art of Missy Adams. The show entitled “Pop Art Presidents” is a collection of paintings honoring the lives and history of the 43 presidents of the United States through red, white, and blue paint.

    Missy Adams is a local artist who took her love of portrait painting and history to create a series of paintings celebrating the colorful personalities and interesting lives led by the nation’s presidents. The show was painted with the limited color palette of red, white, and blue and utilizes shading and layering to create depth representing each president’s own personality. Each painting features a corresponding quote from that president displayed under their portrait.

    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 August.

    Beyond I CAN is a program for post high school individuals with special needs, where they develop an artistically based line of products to sell in their gift shop. These artisans are best known the line of recycled greeting cards they have produced the past ten years.

    The most recent addition to the program is pottery, which will be featured at the August First Thursday event.

    Beyond I CAN is constructing clay pottery using terracotta pots for molds. Everyone is a pot maker as they all make little round balls to line the inside of a terracotta pot to create a new original pot.  When dry they are fired and glazed by the artisans.  A collection of their wares will be available to purchase during the First Thursday event.

    Adams describes painting as her passion, love, therapy, and her nightmare at times. She started painting at a young age and has been primarily self-taught. She has experimented with watercolor, acrylics, oil, gouache, and even coffee to paint on glass, cardboard, canvas, and paper to discover what works best. She describes her style as not realistic per se, attributing her ability to see things differently from others as her inspiration.

    Gordy Fine Art & Framing Co.
    224 E Main
    Summer Invitational

    A rare event from last year’s exhibition schedule at Gordy Fine Art & Framing Co. is back for round two and appears to have some serious staying power. The Summer Invitational brings together works by artists from across the Midwest who all have ties to Muncie and/or Ball State University – most as students, few as professors. The exhibit features both 2D and 3D works by artists who are not currently represented by GFAF Gallery, offering viewers an opportunity to experience fresh, new art from beyond the Muncie scene. Exhibitors include Kaylee Dalton, Steve Garst, Heidi Jensen, Ben Johnson, James Labold, Josh McGarvey, William McQuail, Tim Miller, Amelia Morris, and Casey Parmerlee.

    Light refreshments will be served, and the public is invited to attend. Brief talk to introduce the exhibit as well as artists in attendance at 6:15. 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 http://www.gordyframing.com.
