    Gordy Fine Art & Framing Co.
    224 E. Main

    Gordy Fine Art & Framing Company will open an exhibition of new paintings by artist Carol Strock Wasson, Thursday February 7, 5 – 8 pm. She is one of Indiana’s most accomplished and beloved painters, and Gordy has represented her work for many years.  Throughout the evening, the artist will be on hand to engage with viewers and answer questions. At 6:15 she will speak briefly about her work.  Light refreshments will be served and the public is invited to attend. 

    Carol Strock Wasson lives and works in Union City, Indiana.  She is an Indiana Artisan and her work is routinely included among Indiana’s most prestigious artists in the Hoosier Salon and the Indiana Heritage Arts Exhibition.  Known as a “Plein Air” artist, she often paints outside on location.  Sometimes she finishes paintings in this manner. Very often she sketches or composes “studies” on location and then returns to her studio to finish them. “Paintings completed on-site tend to have more excited strokes which show the artist’s sense of discovery,” says Gordy owner Carl Schafer. “Those completed in the studio are more refined as she spends time clarifying the image and introducing colors that heighten awareness of time of day, temperature, ground water, humidity, and rain.” Examples of both methods will be on view in the exhibition. 

    The exhibition will remain on view with works for sale throughout the month of February.  Gordy Fine Art and Framing Company promotes talented artists, provides appraisals, and offers expert design and craftsmanship for framing and displaying treasured family possessions and works of art. Business hours: Monday through Friday, 9 am – 5:30 pm, Saturday, 9 am – 3 pm. Gordy Fine Art and Framing Company is located at 224 East Main Street, next door to Muncie Civic Theatre.  For more information, visit www.gordyframing.com or call 765-284-8422.

    Muncie Makes Lab
    628 S. Walnut

    Muncie Makes Lab will feature two shows from 5-8pm:

    First Floor: “Real Love, Baby” curated by Lexi Musselman
    Real Love, Baby is a contemporary art show based on the themes of love, heartache, and genuine emotion. It will feature a range of media including drawing, painting, sculpture, performance, and multimedia work from both local and regional artists. Please come see us for an early Valentine's Day celebration!

    Second Floor: “No Labels / Design is a Tool of Action / Architecture is a Verb,” Installation by Ana de Brea, in collaboration with Taylor Henderson, Jesse Lindenfeld, and Barbara Willey. This show is a broad and effervescent speculative-reservoir designated to undertake ventures related to modern reflections and contemporary works of spatial and cultural matters.

    The comprehension of envisaging the design discipline (architecture included) as a vigorous energy intends to spotlight the value of ‘construction’ -the tangible and/or the intellectual.  That vigorous energy looks for architectures like processes of thinking and making as well as it questions how those processes work in the global scenario of today.
