To this goal, all YART art will be priced below $40!

    Each YART Artist will be present throughout YART to meet the public, discuss their art, handle sales personally, and some artists will be making art LIVE at YART!

    The Fall 2014 YART will feature holiday decorations and gifts, beaded jewelry, photography, oil/acrylic/watercolor paintings, fused glass art and jewelry, knits for children and adults, drawings, sculpture, lampwork glass beads, knit stuffed animals, clothing, digital art, poetry, faeries, mosaics, the YART Hands-On Children’s ArtSpace, Bette Graham Memorial Print-Making for Kids presented by The Artist Within, the Art Mart Mobile Supply Shop, the BSU Ceramics Guild, the John Peterson Pottery Students, LIVE MUSIC, and so much more!

    Fun for all ages - YART and ArtsWalk are for the whole family!
     

    YART is still accepting artists! There is no cost to vend at YART, and YART does not take a cut from sales. Artists manage their own sales and need their own display. To become a YART Artist, please email: MissMoth@gmail.com

    Space in Motion
    Twelve dancers, twelve unique environments. Space in Motion brings together the talents of Ball State University’s architecture and dance students for a one-time performance in downtown Muncie as part of First Thursday Arts Walk on March 3. From 6:00-7:00pm, twelve Ball State dance students will perform, each occupying a unique environment created by one of twelve Ball State architecture students. The performance will take place at GearBox:Muncie, the former Cintas building located at the intersection of Jackson and Madison streets. Admission is free and music will be provided by Department of Theater and Dance musician, Adam Crawley.

    The project was organized by Ball State Architecture Professor George Elvin with Dance Professor Susan Koper and IDIA Lab Director John Fillwalk. “Space in Motion promises to be a very unique experience,” Elvin said. "The students are merging design, dance and music in one of Muncie’s most interesting new art spaces. I think anyone with an interest in any of those things will be glad they came.”

    The Muncie Arts and Culture Council is thrilled to have been given an early opportunity to help activate the GearBox space while simultaneously facilitating First Thursday events for artists and groups who might otherwise find it difficult to participate in this Downtown Muncie tradition.

The exhibit will feature several new paintings by the artist who will be on hand to engage with viewers and answer questions. Light refreshments will be served and the public is invited to attend.

    Appropriate for March, Dalton’s work is a whimsical interpretation of the garden landscape with a focus on “the ever longed for spring season and its perpetual fascination of new growth.” Bulbs, seeds, and blooms, both above and beneath the soil, have all found a home in her most recent work. Exploiting the rare combination of encaustic wax and water media, Dalton clearly embraces strong textural differences, reflective of the various surfaces often found in nature

    Dalton received her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Painting from Ball State University in 2008. She was the 2006 recipient of the Watercolor Society of Indiana scholarship. While attending Ball State University, she received five painting awards, including three purchase awards. Dalton studied at the University of Miami, Florida for a Masters of Fine Arts in Painting. She has shown in over 25 group exhibits including Art Basel Miami. She is a member of the Northern Indiana Artists and recently received the Carolyn Jagodits Memorial Award at their latest exhibition. Locally, Dalton was awarded third place at the Minnetrista Open Space: Art About the Land juried show in 2015.

    At 6:15, the artist will speak briefly about her work. Guests are encouraged to ask questions and learn more about the artist as well as her unique pairing of artistic media.

Thesis show featuring the artwork of seven graduating seniors: Daniel Bunker, Garrett Heinkel Alexa Litchfield, Nicole Nikas Jenna Stadick, Chao Wang, and Noelle Wiegand.

    Cornerstone Center for The Arts

    520 E Main

    “Lauren King: 11,520 Hours of Difference” Join Cornerstone Center for the Arts for First Thursday on May 5 for an opening reception and art show featuring the work of Lauren King. The show titled “11,520 Hours of Difference” is Lauren’s senior thesis exhibition which brings to life the abstract idea of finding one’s identity. Born an identical twin, Lauren had to balance trying to find an individual identity, while still embracing her connection to her sister. King is interested in how the cyclical manner of genetics and the interaction we have with our environments works to produce unique individuals. She believes that our biology—the traits and tendencies we were born with—interacts with experiences that we have to build our personalities. For this body of work, she combines patterns found in human cells and within the environment to create complex, intriguing compositions. King relies mainly on watercolors to create the majority of the collection.

    The opening reception will take place from 5 to 7 p.m. in the Cornerstone Art Gallery on the second floor of Cornerstone Center for the Arts. The show will be on display and open to the public throughout the month of May.

    Born, raised, and currently residing in Yorktown, Indiana, King was exposed to the arts at Ball State University at a young age. Her passion for art began in fourth grade during a Saturday Children’s Art Class field trip to the David Owsley Museum of Art on Ball State University’s campus. This love for art and the university campus led Lauren to pursue a degree in art therapy at Ball State. While attending the university, Lauren has been a part of two immersive learning projects through the David Owsley Museum of Art: Synergizing Music and Art, and the Infinite Museum, both aimed to make the museum’s collection more accessible for a diverse group of museum visitors. Beginning in the Fall semester of 2016, King will begin her graduate studies at IUPUI in the art therapy program.

    For more information about this show or the Cornerstone Art Gallery call Cornerstone’s Department of Education and Communication at 765-281-9503, ext. 23.

    The Fickle Peach (21+)

    117 E Charles

    “After Hours Art Reels: Blazing Saddles” Muncie Downtown Development Partnership, in collaboration with The Fickle Peach, presents After Hours Art Reels following the First Thursday Gallery Walks in May. Come enjoy the gallery exhibits from 5-8pm, and join us afterwards at dusk for great cult and art film classics!

    Films will be projected onto the Mutual Bank wall on Charles Street at dusk. Seating will be available on the Fickle Peach patio area located at 117 E. Charles St. for guests who are 21 and up. Viewers who are not yet 21 can watch the films from the sidewalk surrounding the patio area. 

    Gordy Fine Art & Framing Co.

    224 E. Main

    “The Thick of It: Oil Paintings by Margie Prim” Gordy Fine Art and Framing Company will celebrate First Thursday, May 5th from 5 – 8 pm with an opening reception for The Thick of It, oil paintings by Margie Prim. The exhibit will feature several recent paintings by the local artist who will be on hand to engage with viewers. Light refreshments will be served and the public is invited to attend.

    Margie Prim delivers quiet scenes with a bold painting technique. From several feet away, all is calm in both Prim’s still life and landscape paintings. Upon closer inspection, though, gestural swipes and heavy dabs of color reveal a much more powerful and passionate approach to her subject matter. The technique is known as "impasto," where the artist often uses a palette knife to apply paint to the canvas so thick that it projects outward from the surface. 

    “Inspiration comes to me by what I see, whether it be plein air or still life,” the quiet artist explains. “Using color, from grays to brights, is always an adventure for me.” 

    Now known for both plein air landscapes and still life paintings, quiet of subject and wild with impasto and bold color detail, Margie Prim began her art career in the 1960s in Oklahoma by taking painting lessons. She laid her brushes down until the early 1990s when she again took lessons from Walt Lewis and at the Stan Nossett Art School. Margie continued her studies through memberships in the Minnetrista Art Guild and the Indiana Plein Air Painters. Whereas many artists work from sketches or photographs in the comfort of their studio, plein air painters specifically work outside, on location, to create their paintings. Prim is adept in both methods.

    Prim has shown in the Minnetrista Annual, the Richmond Art Museum Annual, Indiana State Fair, the Women’s Commission Art Exhibit, Redtail Conservancy Open Spaces Exhibit, and the Hoosier Salon. She has won awards at several exhibits and held several one woman exhibits in the region.

    A short talk about Prim’s work will be given at 6:15 pm. Guests are encouraged to ask questions and learn more about the artist throughout the evening.

    Gordy Fine Art and Framing Company promotes talented artists and offers expert design and craftsmanship for framing and displaying treasured family possessions and works of art. “The Thick of It” may also be viewed through the end of May during regular 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.

    “Dellas Henke and Harlan Mathieu”

    There will be an Opening Reception for First Thursday from 4-6pm for an exhibition of woodcuts and engravings by Dellas Henke and Harlan Mathieu at The Atrium Gallery on Ball State University’s campus. The opening reception is on Thursday, and the shows run until Sept. 21.

    Dellas Henke has a BFA from SUNY Brockport where he worked with Robert Marx and an MFA from the University of Iowa where he worked with Mauricio Lasansky. While still a student, Henke started what would become three projects creating illustrations for literary works by Samuel Beckett. This included gaining permission from Beckett and meeting with him for discussion and signatures. Henke currently teaches at Grand Valley State University where he has been a faculty member since the early 1980s. He has continued to work and exhibit widely and mostly creates work in a series that has a particular theme. His series Chemo Waste deals with his illness from cancer.

    Harlan Mathieu also has an MFA from the University of Iowa where he too worked with the renowned artist, Mauricio Lasansky. Although he has had work published by The Iowa Review, Mathieu 's fortunes did not include a career in university teaching. Instead, Mathieu worked for many years as a carpenter at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Only in the last ten years or so has he been involved in teaching, as an elementary art teacher in the New York City Public Schools. Yet, Mathieu has still continued to work and exhibit at many venues, including the prestigious Society of American Graphic Artists. He is featured in the book The Fine Artist’s Career Guide by Daniel Grant.

    Facing Humanity: A Parade of Masks”
    Gordy Fine Art and Framing Company will celebrate First Thursday, September 1st from 5 – 8 pm with an opening reception for Facing Humanity: A Parade of Masks, an exhibition of hand-made masks by artist and performer Jonathan Becker. The artist will be on hand to engage with viewers throughout the evening and will speak briefly to the audience about his work at 6:15pm. Light refreshments will be served and the public is invited to attend.

    Jonathan Becker is a mask maker, teaching artist, and performer. His first experience with masks was in the summer of 1979. At 15 years old, he attended a summer conference on clowning at Oberlin College where he had the opportunity to hear Avner Eisenberg, hailed as one of the greatest clowns of all time, speak about the universal qualities of the “neutral” mask and what it revealed to the actor.

    Reflecting on the indelible experience, Becker recalled, “He put it on, stood for moment in a stillness that created a deafening silence and then, slightly turned his head. In that moment, the world shifted. I saw the mask change, I saw Avner change, I saw the audience change, and I felt the air in the room change.”

    He began sculpting masks in 1986 while attending The International School of Theatre Jacques Lecoq in Paris, France. Upon his return to the United States, Becker founded Theater-Masks.com, a full service production shop which creates masks for the international theatre community. His masks are currently being use by educational institutions, professional theatres and individual artists. Over the past 16 years, Becker has seen more than 10,000 masks leave the studio for destinations in 45 countries with clients including Disney Theatrical in association with The Lion King, Focus Films, NBC, The Bravo Cable Network, and Theater of Enchantment in Philadelphia. You can visit the studio at www.theater-masks.com.

    Since 1988, Becker has helped in the development of fifteen original plays. He co-founded and was Co-Artistic Director of two theatre companies: Les Senokrates in Luzern, Switzerland and The Brodeur Brothers in Paris, France. He is a regular guest artist at the International Acting with Masks Program at Olso University College in Oslo, Norway. Currently, Becker is the Artistic Director of the North American Laboratory for the Performing Arts. For the past ten years, he has lived and worked in Muncie, IN where he is an Assistant Professor of Theatre at Ball State University.

    Muncie Makes Lab

    628 S. Walnut

    The Muncie Makes Lab will be hosting three exhibitions for September’s First Thursday:

    “Art Mart @Muncie Makes Lab, Karen Fisher, Brittaney Edwards & Tracy Jarrett”

     Several of the members of Art Mart’s staff have the same thing in common; they are all graduates of Ball State University’s School of Art. Since they work for the local art supply, they are all pretty knowledgeable on art supplies and how to use them, each using personal favorites to compose this show.

    Karen Fisher, Art Mart’s owner, is a 1976 graduate, majoring in Art Education. Fisher completed her master’s degree in Education in 1991 and has owned Art Mart since 2003. She likes to draw natural things or any of her collections, which are extensive. She is a self-proclaimed “supply junkie” who likes to collect just about anything of interest. When asked, “What are your interests?,” she would answer, ”Everything”!

    Brittaney Edwards graduated in the spring of 2015 from Ball State University. Since then she has been exploring different media that she did not have time for while in college. Edwards usually likes to draw things related to society and culture that normally come from personal experience or observations of the everyday. She also enjoys blending the dividing lines of painting and drawing in her work. She does so by working in watercolor, ink, and more recently, colored pencil, keeping a focus on mark-making and line work. 

    Tracy Jarrett graduated from Ball State University in the spring of 2015 with a BFA in glass. Although she loves working with glass, she also enjoys drawing in many different media and painting with watercolor. A primary focus within her work is navigating life with an anxiety disorder. She expresses visually the reality of being incapable of decompressing or winding down at the end of the day and the exhaustion that comes with not being able to relax. Through the presentation of her work, she aims to normalize the discussion of mental illnesses.

    “Flim Flam with instructor James Kerestes”

    Flim Flam is an exhibition of artifacts produced by Architecture Design students from Ball State University’s College of Architecture and Planning. Characterized as architectural misfits and oddities, these objects aim to explore conditions of the unfamiliar and strange.

    “Didactic Launch for Exhibit Columbus” 

    Join us for the launch of the 3rd issue of DIDACTIC, which look at the architectural history of Columbus, Indiana. Featuring nine site histories by Enrique Ramirez, the issue also includes an examination of Eames Aluminum Group by Amy Auscherman, a B-sides tour of Columbus by Matt Shaw, and images by Hadley Fruits. Produced and published by PRINTtEXT, DIDACTIC 03 is a textual supplement to the inaugural symposium for Exhibit Columbus, "Foundations and Futures."

    A series of paintings by Faith Kellermeyer will be on display at Savages Alehouse for September's First Thursday. The artist will be on-site throughout the evening to talk about her work with anyone who is interested.

    As a hand-letterer, Kellermeyer is often commissioned to design home decor displaying inspirational quotes. With this series of paintings, she turns the inspirational quote on its head by pairing traditional decorative and floral patterns with both empowering feminist messages and an irreverent sense of humor. She is also a member of We're Trying Collective, a group of Muncie-based artists who work collaboratively to promote community interests while building a culture of inclusion and creative expression.

    For those interested in purchasing her work, Kellermeyer also sells prints of her paintings at a lower price point. Please contact her at faithkellermeyer@gmail.com for questions and inquiries.

    JUST ADDED!

    There will be an open house from 5-8pm at the Book Arts Collaborative  (in the Madjax building located at 514 E. Jackson) and also an open house at Tribune Showprint (501 E. Main St.)

Light refreshments will be served and the public is invited to attend.

    Desperately Seeking Charles features a collection of 3-D work in which each artist individually interprets the material properties of glass through their own perspectives and inspirations. The work explores techniques involved in the making of traditional, vessel forms as well as contemporary, glass-based sculpture.

    “The exhibition title is derived from a philosophical approach. Desperately Seeking Charles is our effort to find a voice and style of expression with glass. We are all desperately seeking a niche of our own within the contemporary glass community,” explained the group of MFA candidates.

    Evan Burnette, Dylan Martinez, and Andrew Schultz are third year candidates who are currently working toward their Creative Project which will be exhibited in the spring of 2017.

    Allyssa Burch and Lily Rawson are second year candidates who are currently exploring material investigations and processes within their studio practice.

    The Atrium Gallery will hold extended hours from 5-8pm for visitors to view the 82nd Annual Student Show. MITS Buses run from downtown Muncie to the university campus until 9 PM.  

    Each year since 1935, the School of Art in the College of Fine Arts at Ball State University has hosted an exhibition of its students’ artwork. In more recent years, in order for our students to have an experience more resembling that of a practicing professional artist, an external juror actively practicing in a field of art has been employed to adjudicate and make all decisions regarding acceptance of artwork(s) into the exhibition, and for making all decisions regarding which art pieces will be further recognized in the form of monetary awards.

    For the exhibition, there will be an award of $500 for 1st place, $250 for 2nd place, and $150 for 3rd place. In addition, each area listed below will see a student artwork be recognized with an area cash award of $100 as specified by the external juror. Three additional artworks will be selected by the juror to receive awards, but the awards are sponsored by the Muncie Art Student League, an organization founded in 1886 by community members, who have contributed to the awards program since the student show’s beginnings in 1935. Another award is the Dean’s Purchase Award from Robert Kvam, Dean, College of Fine Arts.

    The School of Art boasts a population of 500 students, with the predominant majority of those being students pursuing the Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) degree. The BFA is the professional undergraduate degree in studio art whose areas of study in the school specifically are: animation, ceramics, drawing, glass, metals, painting, photography, printmaking, sculpture intermedia/video and time-based art, and Visual Communications (Graphic design). In addition, a representative selection from Foundations/Core courses (Introductory Drawing, Design, and Computer Art) is recognized; an award is given to one of these students who are just beginning their studies in any particular school degree area (BFA, or otherwise). For more program information, please visit our website at http://bsu.edu/art/undergradprograms.

    Gordy Fine Art & Framing Co.
    224 E. Main

    Muncie Artist David Dale and Nashville Poet Andrew Hubbard collaborate to make more than 20 works of art inspired by East Central Indiana’s Red-tail Land Conservancy.  Fall exhibition and sale of their works to benefit Red-tail’s mission.

    Artist David Dale, well-known for his deep concern for the environment and natural resources, has partnered with Andrew Hubbard, who has published two books of poetry reflecting on the connectivity of humanity and nature. Their project is titled All About the Land:  Pastels of David Dale and Poetry of Andrew Hubbard.  An exhibition will open to the public at Gordy Fine Art and Framing Company on September 7, 2017. Proceeds from sale of the work will benefit Red-tail Land Conservancy.

    “We at Gordy are so pleased to be a part if this project to highlight and support the important work of Red-tail,” said Gordy owners Barbara and Carl Schafer. “We are equally pleased to be the venue to welcome David Dale back to Muncie.”

    Hubbard and Dale met in Nashville Indiana where he moved after his retirement from David Dale Designs several years ago. They were neighbors and active members of the creative community there. Dale has since moved back to Muncie and asked Hubbard to partner with him in the creative community here. 

    Their art is inspired by visits to Red-tail lands, now totaling more than 2,600 acres at 36 sites in East-Central Indiana counties. “I work in the studio, but painting outdoors is my passion,” said Dale. “For each image, there is a poem by Andy sharing the same subject. Sometimes my painting responds to his poem, and other times his poem responds to my painting. They will be exhibited side by side.”

    “The experience of working in these remarkable settings is intensely rewarding,” Hubbard adds. “We hope that the works will enable you to participate in the vibrancy of a special place and time."

    Red-tail Land Conservancy’s mission is to preserve, protect, and restore natural areas and farm land in east central Indiana while increasing awareness of our natural heritage. “We hope Dale and Hubbard’s portrayals of these preserved sites will inspire Hoosiers to appreciate the splendor of nature and join Red-tail in its mission,” said Red-tail’s Education and Outreach Coordinator Julie Borgman.     

    “I look forward to any opportunity to walk in our woods, and love to accompany David and Andy on their visits,” said Executive Director Barry Banks. “I can’t wait to see the Red-tail renderings that will emerge.”

    Dale and Hubbard have also welcomed watercolorist, Jim Faulkner to collaborate on the exhibit. Dale and Faulkner have teamed-up over the years on many successful art projects, including the exhibit, “River Odyssey, Two Artists Follow the Wabash”, which toured several galleries and museums for over a year, starting with the Indiana State Museum and ending at Minnetrista Cultural Center before going to auction with a percent of proceeds going to support the Wabash River Heritage Corridor Commission’s educational and conservation programs.

    David Dale is well-known in East Central Indiana and beyond for his years as an interior designer, but now paints full time. He studied art the Fort Wayne School and Museum and has taught in the Ball State University School of Art.His major exhibits include, River Odyssey, Two Artists Follow the Wabash, and Oakhurst Gardnens through the Seasons. He has received numerous awards in competitions, including those hosted by The Hoosier Salon, Indiana Heritage Arts, Richmond Art Museum, and Minnetrista.

    Andrew Hubbard holds degrees in Creative Writing from Dartmouth College and Columbia University. For most of his career, he worked as Director of Training for a number of major financial institutions. He is a well-known speaker on the topic of corporate training, and has authored three books and dozens of articles on the subject. He has published two books of poetry, Things That Get You, and The Divining Rod, both through Interactive Press. 

    Odyssey

    By Andrew Hubbard

    Imagine effortless perfection.

    Imagine this river

    Not making a wrong turn

    In a thousand years,

    Reflecting every leaf and cloud

    With passion and precision

    Nourishing the deep roots

    Of the silver maples

    Who offer tribute in return:

    Showers of golden leaves

    Gifted to the river current

    Wherever it may venture.

This showcase will feature artwork by skilled instructors Jasen Combs and Eugene Boyd as well as many of their talented students. The student work ranges from those that have been working with clay for a short time, to students that have worked with clay for nearly a decade. The exhibition features a range of ceramic pieces, from vases and bowls to elaborate wall hangings, many of which will be for sale. Cornerstone is proud to showcase instructors Jasen Combs and Eugene Boyd along with their students.

    Jasen Combs has been teaching at Cornerstone Center for the Arts for 14 years. Combs received his Bachelors of Fine Arts in Ceramics from Ball State University in 1996 and went on to receive his Masters Degree in Ceramics in 2001. He creates both wheel thrown pottery as well as hand built altered wall hangings. His teaching philosophy is to let the students experience the clay with all their senses.  He wants them to touch, feel and make the clay move. Combs loves it when they have no previous experience with clay and he can watch how they develop and grow in the class.

    Eugene Boyd became familiar with Cornerstone Center for Arts when his granddaughter began taking ballet and piano classes. Boyd took a ceramics class in 2011 at Cornerstone, and fell in love with clay. He continued taking classes at Cornerstone as well as working with a well-known potter in the community. Now, Boyd has his own studio, and teaches ceramics to adults and children at Cornerstone. He enjoys the opportunity to share his passion with his students and hopes they enjoy working with clay as much as he does.

    The opening reception for the Cornerstone Ceramics Showcase, will take place on Thursday, December 7, from 5 to 8 p.m. at the Cornerstone Art Gallery on the second floor of Cornerstone Center for the Arts. The show will be on display and open to the public throughout the month of December.

Her work will tells the story of a young girl-artist-woman, giving voice all and told through vibrant colors sprinkled with spray art.

    Debra Gindhart Dragoo always outspoken and creative, she’s poured her energy, over the years, into various projects, both personal and community-wide. She’s practiced her love of spoken-word poetry at various First Thursday events, and has showcased her Green Glam Studio line of environmentally friendly jewelry, which is also available at Madjax Muncie. 

    “I believe that life passes from our art. We evolved with age and, hence, our style and media evolve. My art is storytelling using strokes and spray,” says Debra Gindhart Dragoo. “My art has been fiber and paint and public. Through years of community outreach arts programming, I hold multi-generational projects close to my artist heart. This show reflects the information gathered in my different age progressions. Art is in my spirit, resounding from my soul."
