    The Artist Within
    313 S Walnut

    The Artist Within will exhibit a retrospective look at the artwork of former BSU Art professor Bob Lundy. Mr. Lundy taught photography and graphic design during the late sixties.  Former student of Lundy and owner of the Artist Within, Bob Hartley, has fond memories of his class. “Attention to detail and a commitment to fine craftsmanship” are two of the qualities Hartley recalls being stressed by the young professor and always visible in Lundy’s artwork.

    After a career that included teaching at Earhlam College, University of Akron and Eastern Kentucky, as well as being a tech-rep for Nikon Camera, Mr. Lundy retired to Florida to pursue his passion of underwater photography and whimsical wood carving. His love of the water led him to earn the Coast Guard designation of “Captain” in 1984 and hence began signing his wood carvings “Captain Bob”. Bob Lundy lives in Muncie with his daughter Starr Manning.

    “Soul Sauce…a look at the work of Bob Lundy” will be the featured show throughout February at the Artist Within.  An opening reception will be First Thursday February 5th from 5-8pm.

    Please make plans to see this exhibit that showcase a broad range of mediums and many of his whimsical wood carvings.


    Gallery 308
    308 E Main
    Pop Art Presidents

    “Pop Art Presidents” showcasing the talents of artist Melissa Adams opens at Gallery 308 on February 5. The opening reception for the new exhibit will be held First Thursday, from 5 to 8 p.m. The public is welcome.

    The February exhibition is retrospective series of portraits of all 43 U.S. presidents painted in red, white and blue.    Artist Melissa Adams states, “I had this idea to paint the presidents in red white and blue. I didn't know if it had been done before, so I checked on google. I could not find anything quite like what I had in mind.”

    Her exhibition was inspired by two things she loves, “I love portrait painting. I like painting with a limited palette. It is amazing what you can do with just a few colors. I love history.”   She added “The exhibition is intended to open a dialogue about our history. This is my attempt to make it current, to make it real in this day. History is so very important. Our presidents have led very colorful lives.”

    Adams began painting at an early age, she says I am not sure why I stopped, but I did. Then about three years ago she started painting in earnest. Her preferred medium is acrylics, but she also paints in oils, watercolors and even sometimes coffee, whatever she can get her hands on. 

    Before she began painting the series, Adams researched each president as extensively as she could, reading about their families, their wives and children. She said, “It helped me to paint them by knowing who they were outside of their political party. After 43, I don't know that I can recall all the details, but it was so interesting. Some everyone will recognize others I didn't even know by their portrait before I started this series. I love that I have learned so much and my hope that this series helps others to do the same.”  History buffs will also appreciate that Adams is also including a quote from each president under their portrait.

    “Pop Art Presidents” exhibit continues through February 27. The gallery is open Fridays from 3-7pm and Saturdays from 12:30 – 5:00pm.  Admission is free.  Gallery 308, which provides space for local and regional artists with monthly “First Thursday” exhibits, is in its 14th year as a nonprofit art gallery.  For more information about the Gallery 308 exhibit opening, contact sherry@jackscamera.com.

    Muncie Makes Charrette // Redesign the Neighborhood
    After inspiration from both Urban Planning and Architecture professors, sophomores Megan Clevenger and Samantha Wiser teamed up to plan an interdisciplinary charrette. The focus of the charrette was in the Maker's District, south of downtown, along Wisor street. The duo advertised within Ball State's College of Architecture and Planning for teams of architecture, planning, and landscape architecture students. The Martin Luther King Day charrette had a successful turnout of Graduate and Undergraduate students, representing all three majors, combined. The team tackled strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats of the site while incorporating possible solutions to the underused space.

    Sensory Soul Box
    Prof Pam Harwood's Culture and Environment students each​​ created a box that holds and assembles selected images and cultural artifacts that tells a story of one’s place in the world. The boxed constructions allow the reader an escape to a miniature universe inspired by distant places and times, evoking conscious memories through the juxtaposition of objects and imagined allusions.

    Catie Newell, Alibi Studio + Prof Tim Gray’s undergraduate architecture studio have done a site specific design build installation in MML.
