Gindhart (at Madjax)
514 E. Jackson St. (2nd floor)
Local artist Debra Gindhart has recently completed a gallery reset in her second floor gallery at Madjax Muncie. Her focus of art placement is to reveal the recycling and renewing techniques vital to her creative visual message. Art and recycling goes hand-in-hand. Eco-artists are, nowadays, transforming old, recycled and resued objects into amazing pieces of contemporary art. Eco-artists are expressing their emotions and ideas through a wide range of materials found and otherwise. Debra’s personal artist anthem is “I am trying to save the landfills one piece of costume jewelry and one piece of thrift store art at a time.”

Eco-art which is oftentimes 3 dimensional work using common raw and natural materials to create an object with different messages directed to the viewers and the public audiences, where people can discover cultural movements like social commentary through contemporary art. 

Debra believes in order to make attractive pieces of contemporary art and literally turn around the world, eco-artists are turning recyclables into creative pieces of art and thereby contributing to the Green Movement taking place in different spheres of life. Artists are finding innovative ways to show their concern for the environment and thus encouraging the masses to reuse, reduce and recycle for a better future.

Meet the artist during August’s First Thursday from 5-8pm, 2nd floor galleries at Madjax.
