    The Artist Within
    313 S Walnut
    Some Otherness and a Dog

    Paul Grant will be the featured artist for the month of February at the Artist Within. His exhibit, "Some Otherness and a Dog”, will feature his collage work . This long time Muncie resident began making collages a decade ago as a way to sketch images that were beyond his ability to draw.  Paul explains that over the years, his use of collage has developed into a language all its own.  He feels that it allows him a full range of creative freedom, whether he is working with images or text.

    February 13th, from 5-8pm will be the “meet the artist opening reception”. There will be light refreshments and live music featuring Gregg Pyle. The opening is free and open to the public.

    Gordy Fine Art & Framing Co.
    224 E Main
    Annual BSU Print Show, “New Edition”

    Prints are hot, and the wintertime Annual Print Exhibit at Gordy Fine Art & Framing will feature woodcut prints and etchings by two Ball State University printmaking professors. David and Sarojini Johnson are known both for their own signature styles and for the number of students following their example as professionals in the field. With more than fifty years of combined teaching, the duo continues to hone their artistic skills. “The woodcuts, etchings and artist’s books in this show represent some of their best work,” notes Brian Gordy, gallery owner.

    David’s woodcuts often depict humans or animals – cows, pigs, crows – in large color block

    scenes, fair barns, streetscapes or fast food establishments.  Sarojini’s pieces are known for an exotic flavor, where plants and insects, frogs and lilies are poised in colorful, dark, dreamlike garden scenes, decorative ribbons running around edges. In “Frog and Lily,” a blue-green spotted frog competes with orange and red flowers for center stage. David’s “Topknots and Polka Dots” depicts a seated woman who appears to be relaxing in a corner of the printmaking room at Ball State University – home office for the Johnson duo.

    The two artists engage different methods to arrive at their compositions. Sarojini employs intaglio, mastering the process in tight, rich details that are etched out of a metal plate. The plate is then inked and run through a press to create a single print at a time. David’s relief prints, cut by hand, often include color blocks of street scenes or observed moments of contemporary life. His artistic method of choice is relief printing, where wood or linoleum is carved away, leaving desired areas that then receive ink and are printed onto special papers. Each color requires either a different carved block or the same block, cut out a bit more after each color application.

    In addition to the framed prints for this annual exhibit, hand-printed books will also be shown. Folding outward, the print books resemble a sculptural work of art that might be displayed open, on table top or mantle.

    The opening reception for “New Edition” will be held Thursday, February 6, 2014 from 5 to 8 PM at the downtown gallery. Light refreshments will be served and the artists will be introduced at 6:15 PM for a short talk, and to answer questions about the work. The exhibit

    will continue through February 28, 2014, and may also be viewed during normal business hours: Monday-Friday, 9 AM to 5:30 PM, Saturday, 9 to 3, or by appointment. 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 http://www.gordyframing.com

  • Main Stream: Candlepin Bowling with PlySpace Resident Heather Van Winckle 4pm to 8pm @ Muncie Mall In JC Penney Wing, across from Country Charm 3501 N Granville Avenue, Muncie, Indiana, 47303

    PlySpace completes the Fall 2018 Residency Term projects with a homemade candlepin bowling alley by resident artist Heather Van Winckle at the Muncie Mall. The bowling project, Main Stream, will be located inside a vacant storefront at the mall (near JC Penney and across from Country Charm) and will be open to the public during select times from October 27th to November 4th, 2018. 

    Main Stream explores the game of bowling as an all-American pastime in an all-American location. The game of bowling is unique in that it can be learned by almost anyone at any age and only requires skill to knock down all of the pins at the end of the lane. With Main Stream, the game is reimagined as a short-length candlepin bowling lane with a soft wood surface which will take the impression of the ball after each roll, making it more difficult to roll the ball straight as the games progress. The ball used is small, only 2.5 lbs, and is easy for anyone to roll, though the lane may become difficult to navigate. The homemade lane features a built-in ball return and pin reset, bringing the game back to its simple roots, this time with an artist’s twist.

    The public is encouraged to stop by the Main Stream storefront, located across from Country Charm, to learn more about PlySpace, participate in the project, and meet the artist. 

    Open Bowling Times

    The bowling lane will be open to Muncie Mall patrons and curious community members alike. Times will also be posted at the storefront, and there is no fee to bowl. Children should be supervised by an adult. 

    TUESDAY        10/30 | 12-4 PM

    WEDNESDAY  10/31 | 4-8 PM

    THURSDAY      11/01 | 12-4 PM

    FRIDAY            11/02 | 4-6 PM

    SATURDAY      11/03 | 5-9 PM

    SUNDAY          11/04 | 12-3 PM

    League Nights

    The lane will be available for teams of 4 to compete in candlepin league play. Each team will battle for one hour against a second team, and the highest score wins. To participate in the league, up to 6 teams per night can RSVP to hello@plyspace.org to reserve a space, first come first serve. Game play is free, but teams who miss their reservation may have to forfeit their game. No experience with bowling or league play is necessary to form a team!

    FRIDAY           11/02 | 6-9 PM

    SUNDAY         11/04 | 3-6 PM

    About the artist:

    Van Winkle is a project-based, interdisciplinary artist who received her MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute with major focus in sculpture. She is interested in the nuances of American culture and the definition of “normal” social behavior. About this project, she writes, “Consider ‘normal’ as the deepest set tracks in a field we all walked through. All of us took our individual footsteps, sometimes choosing a path others had laid, often deviating either on purpose or without thinking onto untouched soil. A society full of edge-cases still forms a path somewhere in-between. Even if that line truly represents no one person, it represents us collectively. Main Stream examines the ways in which we continually shape our society to either reinforce or deviate from the paths trekked before.”

    The Atrium Gallery
    Arts and Journalism Building, 1st floor, Ball State University campus

    “Hannah Barnes & Ted Neal: Sabbatical Exhibitions”
    The Ball State University School of Art Atrium Gallery proudly presents a two-person exhibition of artwork by Hannah Barnes, Associate Professor of Art, Painting, and Ted Neal Professor of Art, Ceramics, from October 30 to November 29, 2018. The Atrium Gallery will have extended hours for the November 1st First Thursday from 5:00pm to 8:00pm.

    Barnes will conduct a public lecture at 5:30pm on November 15 in AJ225 regarding her work in the exhibition and her research in India after receiving a Fullbright Scholarship and a sabbatical leave during the 2017-18 academic year.

    Neal received a sabbatical leave for the 2018 spring semester and will conduct a Gallery Talk on his work on Monday, November 19 at 3:30pm in the Atrium Gallery.

    Barnes creates work that draws on a familiar vocabulary of abstract forms and tropes to explore the nature of meaning within abstraction. Her work in painting, drawing, and installation engages ideas such as structure and fragmentation, surface and depth, perception, illusion, impermanence, and the indeterminacy of images. 

    Neal says about his work: “In all of my work, one constant is my use of the vessel as a framework upon which to hang concepts of utility and self-expression. Specifically, my utilitarian work is most satisfactory when a single object occupies space as both a useful object and one that also embodies loftier ideas such as beauty, connectedness and shared kinesthetic experiences.”

    The School of Art Atrium Gallery is in the Art and Journalism Building and is open Monday through Friday, 9 a.m.-4 p.m. and Saturdays 1-4 p.m.

    Book Arts Collaborative (at Madjax)

     The Brinkman Gallery
    409 S. Walnut

    Brinkman Gallery will be featuring "Waterscapes" by artist, Kevin Campbell. We will also be featuring Kevin's original DOG portraits and "The Puzzle Project".  Check our Kevin’s website http://www.kevincampbellartwork.com/

    Kevin Campbell’s meticulously painted water landscapes at the Brinkman Gallery are full of dualities. At a distance they appear photorealistic, but as you approach the pattern of the waves begins to break down into abstract forms and shapes. The limited field of the canvas has become a snapshot of eternity. Just as the sailor cannot drink the sea, he can only sail over its surface, viewer of art can only skim, they can never plumb the depths to know the heart of the one who created it.

    Kevin is a native of Griffith, IN and moved to Muncie in 1972 to attend BSU.  He have lived in Muncie ever since.

    Brinkman Gallery is located at 409 South Walnut Street – corner of Walnut and Charles and welcomes guests to meet Kevin Campbell and enjoy refreshments during First Thursday.

    “Studies In Isolation: An Art Exhibition by Shannon Mehaffey”
    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.

    For more information about the exhibition call Cornerstone’s Department of Education & Communication at 765-281- 9503, ext. 23 or visit cornerstonearts.org.

    Gindhart (at Madjax)
    514 E. Jackson St. (2nd floor)

    “1992 WAS THE YEAR OF THE AMERICAN INDIAN”
    The 500th anniversary of the arrival of Christopher Columbus in the western hemisphere in 1492 was the occasion for national and local celebrations. However, for Native people it was an occasion they could neither fully embrace nor participate in. Congress acknowledged their concerns regarding the Columbus Quincentennial by enacting 1992 as the “Year of the American Indian" signed by then President George H.W. Bush. 

    The American Indian response to the anniversary was marked by public protests. Yet, it also was seen by many in that community as a special, year-long opportunity to hold public education events, commemorations of ancestral sacrifices and contributions to America, and celebrations for the survival of Native peoples over five centuries.

    Debra Gindhart will celebrate Native American Heritage Month with an assemblage art series "Native American Indian Genocide". Adding several new pieces of art to her current collection. Art reflecting history in vibrant colors and mixed media.

    Debra has also created a beautiful Green Glam Studio jewelry collection using native natural stones and beads. Her maker homage to Native American Indian bead works and artisans.  

    Join Debra in her Gindhart at Madjax studio/gallery for November's First Thursday second floor Madjax Muncie. Enjoy light refreshments and meet the artist from 5-8pm in the 2nd floor studio/gallery.

    Muncie Makes Lab
    628 S. Walnut

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

    First Floor Show:
    “The Figurative Element: Drawings from Life”
    Teddy Lepley and Erin McAtee

    A group show of drawings made by Ball State students, alumni, and faculty. The drawings in the exhibition are drawn from life. We believe that drawing from life creates a more sensitive and lively drawing which reveals subtle decisions made by the artist and makes a record of an encounter with the subject being drawn.  

    Second Floor Show:
    “Design is a tool of action. Architecture is a verb.” 

    Installation by Ana de Brea, In collaboration with Taylor Henderson and Jesse Lindenfeld 

    Curiosity and a passionate spirit of inquiry have always helped me foster learning to fashion architecture in so many ways. Aaron Betsky challenges: ‘Is an architect more than just somebody who gets buildings built? Any architect who has a sense of self-worth derived from something other than money or the satisfaction of getting a job done must answer this question. That means that she or he must believe that there is either an artistic role (making beauty) or a critical one for the architect. Both are profoundly difficult notions to maintain.’ Here I am (once again) trying to maintain both of those complex hypotheses. The construction of the structural forms created intends to provoke the force that attracts a body towards the center of the earth, or toward any other physical body having weight. Those anatomical shapes are result of a deep exploration on the material used. To stretch, to fold, to pleat, to compress, to crimp, to crinkle, to ruck up, to crease, to surface, among others, become new components of the architectural vocabulary and, essentially, creative parts of the making of architecture. There is more. I do believe in explorations (future) that go beyond the experiences already done (past) and cross-examine subjects from 360 degrees leaving behind presuppositions or preconceived concepts.

  • Main Stream: Candlepin Bowling with PlySpace Resident Heather Van Winckle 4pm to 9pm @ Muncie Mall In JC Penney Wing, across from Country Charm 3501 N Granville Avenue, Muncie, Indiana, 47303

    PlySpace completes the Fall 2018 Residency Term projects with a homemade candlepin bowling alley by resident artist Heather Van Winckle at the Muncie Mall. The bowling project, Main Stream, will be located inside a vacant storefront at the mall (near JC Penney and across from Country Charm) and will be open to the public during select times from October 27th to November 4th, 2018. 

    Main Stream explores the game of bowling as an all-American pastime in an all-American location. The game of bowling is unique in that it can be learned by almost anyone at any age and only requires skill to knock down all of the pins at the end of the lane. With Main Stream, the game is reimagined as a short-length candlepin bowling lane with a soft wood surface which will take the impression of the ball after each roll, making it more difficult to roll the ball straight as the games progress. The ball used is small, only 2.5 lbs, and is easy for anyone to roll, though the lane may become difficult to navigate. The homemade lane features a built-in ball return and pin reset, bringing the game back to its simple roots, this time with an artist’s twist.

    The public is encouraged to stop by the Main Stream storefront, located across from Country Charm, to learn more about PlySpace, participate in the project, and meet the artist. 

    Open Bowling Times

    The bowling lane will be open to Muncie Mall patrons and curious community members alike. Times will also be posted at the storefront, and there is no fee to bowl. Children should be supervised by an adult.

    League Nights

    The lane will be available for teams of 4 to compete in candlepin league play. Each team will battle for one hour against a second team, and the highest score wins. To participate in the league, up to 6 teams per night can RSVP to hello@plyspace.org to reserve a space, first come first serve. Game play is free, but teams who miss their reservation may have to forfeit their game. No experience with bowling or league play is necessary to form a team!

    About the artist:

    Van Winkle is a project-based, interdisciplinary artist who received her MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute with major focus in sculpture. She is interested in the nuances of American culture and the definition of “normal” social behavior. About this project, she writes, “Consider ‘normal’ as the deepest set tracks in a field we all walked through. All of us took our individual footsteps, sometimes choosing a path others had laid, often deviating either on purpose or without thinking onto untouched soil. A society full of edge-cases still forms a path somewhere in-between. Even if that line truly represents no one person, it represents us collectively. Main Stream examines the ways in which we continually shape our society to either reinforce or deviate from the paths trekked before.”
