    The Artist Within
    313 S Walnut

    The Artist Within will feature the third social network exhibit, titled "Indiana".

    Participating artists will be using social media to spread the word about this show and its theme. The first two exhibits, "Robots" and "Birds and Words", were a huge success and we are certain you will enjoy this one too. Local artists in all mediums will be exhibiting and selling work that they have created to explore the theme of Indiana. Come see what the Hoosier state means to these artists of all ages.

     

    Gallery 308
    308 E Main

    The ArtCamp Show featuring the talents of more than 45 young artists opens at Gallery 308 August 1. Many of the cities young artists have been busy this summer participating in an Art Camp sponsored by Art Mart and The Artist Within. The campers took a trip "Under the Sea: Exploring the Oceans through Art".  Held at The Artist Within, this summer saw six weeks of clay camps and one week of fine arts camp.

    Karen Fisher, owner of Art Mart and longtime ArtCamp instructor, said her students aged 5 to 13 created traditional Japanese fish prints, a school of origami fish, 3-D papier-mâché puffer fish, and a mural of sea creatures. Artist Within owner Bob Hartley stated, "It is really fun watching them grow and to follow their artistic growth. The excitement the kids bring is what keeps this old art teacher eager for the return of Summer ArtCamps."

    The campers have drawn, painted, and potted during their underwater exploration.  Fisher added, "The highpoint for each of the young artists is the thrill of seeing their artistic creations professionally hung and lit in a gallery."  The culmination of their art camp experience will be an exhibit at Gallery 308 with the First Thursday reception.   The opening reception for the new exhibit will be held from 5 to 8 p.m. The public is welcome.

    The gallery is open Friday from 3:00 – 7:00 pm and Saturday from 12:30 – 5:00pm.  Admission is free. The ArtCamp Show continues through August 3.

    Gordy Fine Art & Framing Co.
    224 E Main

    Faulkner Watercolors August Exhibit  - Jim Faulkner is one of the best known artists of east central Indiana, and his interests and reputation as a watercolor painter extend throughout the state and beyond. But it is Indiana that has received most of the artist's attention for the past two decades. Since 1990, Faulkner has been accepted twenty times into the famed Hoosier Salon exhibits, winning six awards. In the same period, ten painting have been juried into Watercolor Society of Indiana exhibits, earning seven awards. Minnetrista Annual and Hoosier Heritage have provided three awards each, with a Merit Award in 2013 at the latter. Faulkner has taught numerous workshops, and also taught in the Ball State University Art Dept., where he first met Brian and Genny Gordy, as students. Brian credits his former professor with instilling the beauty of transparent watercolors into his art career. Faulkner received both his own undergraduate and master's degrees at BSU.

    Faulkner will exhibit new paintings that were done in the fall, winter and spring seasons of 2012-13. A lover of his chosen medium, the artist offers, "As always, I was primarily interested in wonderful images all around me, and my futile attempts to capture that image – but with the added beauty of watercolor paint on rag paper." Opening with a First Thursday reception on August 1, 2013, the show continues through the end of the month. The artist will speak about his work and answer questions, beginning at 6:15 PM. Light refreshments will be served and the public is invited to attend.

    Interesting notes about this Muncie artist include the fact that Faulkner was an abstract painter for 15 years before returning to his roots of realist watercolors. He was also a dedicated sculptor, and taught Brian and Genny – and many others, including nephew, Steve Clark, the art of bronze casting in the 1970's. He and his wife, Eleanor, live on a small farmstead outside Muncie with various cats and dogs. Jim's studio is in their restored barn.

    Corrinne LeNeave Installation in Nook Gallery - Alexandra Corrinne LeNeave will exhibit installation pieces in the Nook gallery at Gordy's. A recent graduate of Ball State University, she holds a BFA in Video Art and Electronic Media. Her work examines object ownership as it flows between generations in a family.

    Gordy Fine Art & Framing Co. is located at 224 E. Main Street, next door to Muncie Civic Theatre.  For more information, call 765-284-8422 or visit www.gordyframing.com.

    Come see a sampling of the students' portfolios.  Some of the work was completed in a class; some was completed independently.  The students work encompasses every medium from watercolor to oils to ceramics and everything in between. 

    Here is a bit more information from the homeschooling community:

    "East Central Indiana has a large homeschooling community.  We are a diverse group, representing different cultures, religions, political leanings and even educational ideologies and methodologies, but we all homeschool.  We welcome other homeschoolers to connect with our community via YahooGroups and Facebook.

    HomeschoolCoCo is a general group for topics that relate even remotely to homeschooling in Delaware County and its surrounding areas. http://groups.yahoo.com/group/HomeschoolCoCo

    Homeschool Explorers is the daughter group to CoCo.  It is for organizing field trips, holding competitions (like the Spelling Bee or Math Olympiad), and hosting a booksale every summer.  http://groups.yahoo.com/group/HomeschoolExplorers/
