  • Studies In Isolation: An Art Exhibition by Shannon Mehaffey 5pm @ Cornerstone Center for the Arts The Judith Barnes Memorial Gallery 520 E Main, Muncie, IN 47305

    Join Cornerstone Center for Arts on Thursday, November 1 for the opening reception of Studies In Isolation, an art exhibition by Shannon Mehaffey. The reception will take place in the newly renovated Judith Barnes Memorial Gallery on the second floor of Cornerstone Center for the Arts from 5:00 to 7:00 pm in conjunction with November’s First Thursday events.

     

    Studies In Isolation is a mixed media series of paintings depicting derelict and vacant landscapes. Abandoned buildings, factories, blight, and power lines all serving as metaphors for loss, grief, and enduring hardship within oneself and surviving. The artist tries to convey a sense of beauty and wonder using color despite the blight around her; fueling a sense of optimism and a drive for survival.

     

    Shannon Mehaffey is an artist and educator living and working in Muncie, Indiana. She teaches watercolor painting and mixed media arts to adults and youth at Cornerstone Center for the Arts. Her work often incorporates elements of collage, alternative process photography, watercolor painting and drawing. Common concepts explored throughout the works often come from personal histories of growth, redemption, feminism, survivorship, and grief.

     

    Studies In Isolation will be on display and open to the public in the Judith Barnes Memorial Gallery throughout the month of November.
