  • Threads - A Pop-Up Exhibition by PlySpace Artist Sarah Trad & Sydney Pursel 5pm to 8pm @ PlySpace Gallery 608 E Main Street, Muncie, IN 47305
    "Medicine?" Interactive sculpture by PlySpace Resident Sydney Pursel

    Muncie Arts and Culture Council will present a pop-up, one-night-only exhibition of new multimedia and sculpture artwork by PlySpace artists-in-residence Sarah Trad and Sydney Pursel. The exhibition titled Threads explores concurrent themes in the artists’ work related to personal heritage and representation. The exhibition will be held on First Thursday, December 5th, from 5-8 PM in the PlySpace Gallery. Both artists will be present throughout the evening and share brief remarks about their work at 7:00 PM. Light refreshments will be served and the public is invited to attend.

    Since their arrival in early November, both Trad and Pursel have completed collaborative, community-based arts projects in the city of Muncie while also working on their own artwork in the PlySpace Studios in Madjax. Trad collaborated with both Ball State University School of Art and the Islamic Center of Muncie to offer workshops on nuno felting in the month of November. Pursel collaborated with Minnetrista and The Delaware County Historical Society to offer an iteration of The Feast, an educational performance where she created handmade plates and place settings that celebrate the many Native American tribes of the United States. Both artists were also joined by visiting artist Toby Kaufmann-Buhler for Heritage in Practice, a panel discussion at Ball State University School of Art on November 14th. The event, moderated by Tania Said, Director of Education at the David Owsley Museum of Art, explored topics of heritage and cultural expression in artwork.

    Threads will be the culmination of work created by the artists during their residency experience. The two-person exhibition will examine themes of decolonization and representation of both Indigenous Native American and Middle Eastern cultures as they pertain to each artist’s specific family life. Using traditional clothing, textile, and pattern design and practice, among other media, each artist will explore how inherited trauma such as mental illness and addiction causes rifts in future generations. Each artist hopes to use their work as a window to understanding the position of Native American and Middle Eastern cultural identities outside of their problematic historical representations.  

    Sydney Pursel (Kansas City, MS) is an interdisciplinary artist specializing in interactive, socially engaged, and performance art. Through art she explores personal identity drawing from her Indigenous and Irish Catholic roots and links identity struggles with contemporary Indigenous issues. Her work has been shown at public parks, universities, galleries, and alternative spaces across the U.S. and Canada. Pursel received her MFA in Expanded Media at the University of Kansas and her BFA in Painting from the University of Missouri. She was the first recipient of the Ucross Fellowship for Native American Visual Artists, received the Harpo Foundation Native American Residency Fellowship at the Vermont Studio Center, and was selected for the Indigenous Arts Initiative Residency program through the Kansas Creative Arts Industries Commission. Pursel is an enrolled member of the Ioway Tribe of Kansas and Nebraska.

    Sarah Trad (Philadelphia, PA) is a video artist and curator who explores the relationship between subjective and objective emotionality, navigating daily life and relationships while faced with mental illness and breaking down stereotypes of gender and narrative. Her work also highlights how mental illness and coming from marginalized backgrounds intersects with internal emotional worlds. Sarah has participated in other residencies, such as the 77Art Residency in Rutland, Vermont and is a recipient of the Carol N. Schmuckler Award for Outstanding Achievement in Film. Sarah’s work has been shown at The Warehouse Gallery (Syracuse, NY), Kitchen Table Gallery (Philadelphia, PA), Gravy Studio and Gallery (Philadelphia, PA) and the Everson Museum of Art (Syracuse, NY). She is currently part of the Philadelphia artist-run gallery, Little Berlin.

    Cornerstone Center for the Arts
    520 E. Main
    Join Cornerstone Center for the Arts on Thursday, March 5 for the opening reception of A Never-Ending Quest featuring the art of Shannon Mehaffey. The reception will take place in the Judith Barnes Memorial Gallery on the second floor of Cornerstone from 5 to 7 p.m. in conjunction with March’s First Thursday events.

    This collection of new mixed-media artworks by artist Shannon Mehaffey is a culmination of new processes and themes the artist has discovered through experimentation, meditation, and dedication to the study of art. Inspired by the fantastical landscapes, items, and stories found within the digital realm of video game franchises such as “Skyrim,” “Death Stranding,” and “Fallout.”  The artist has dedicated her artistic practice to exploring new art mediums and processes. Born out of the artist's long lost love of analog darkroom photography, this body of work is about learning to control the alchemy of the papers and inks using solvents, moving ink around the page in a totally uncontrolled manner, and finding order within the chaos.

    Shannon Mehaffey is a Visual Artist living in Muncie, Indiana. She earned her BFA in Photography in Fine Arts at Ball State University in 2010, she currently teaches Watercolors, Drawing, Landscape Painting, and Mixed Media at Cornerstone Center for the Arts. In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her partner, her two dogs, binging Netflix, and playing video games.

    A Never-Ending Quest will be on display and open to the public in the Judith Barnes Memorial Gallery throughout the month of March.

    For more information about the exhibition call Cornerstone’s Department of Education & Communication at 765-281- 9503, ext. 123 or visit cornerstonearts.org.

    The Fickle Peach (21+)
    117 E. Charles

    Madeline Douglass will show her work at The Fickle Peach. Madeline grew up in Muncie, Indiana, and then attended university at the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) in Savannah, Georgia. She majored in screenwriting, but held close to her original love of drawing.

    This collection is a few of her studies of human anatomy. They are largely mixed media – including conte crayon, charcoal, watercolor, colored pencil, and ink.

    In these pieces, Madeline observed and attempted to capture the grace and fluidity of the human form. She sat for several hours, just about every Friday and Saturday, for three years, staring at naked people, doing her damnedest to replicate every little nook and cranny. She was forced to squint at these poor models as her professors tried to get her to see shadow shapes and highlights. Madeline had her own personal style of drawing ripped apart and rebuilt to someone else’s standards.

The “Celtic Roots” show features images of Scotland- from where my ancestors originated- before they migrated to Ireland. Perhaps yours did too. Here you will get a chance to walk the ancient passageways of far off castles, explore a rare class of Neolithic henge monument, and meander down the street that inspired J.K. Rowling’s Diagon Alley. Come and follow in the footsteps of our ancestors- through the winding green hills and lush river valleys, past the castle gate and up the spiral staircase cut out of solid stone. Adventure awaits! Come celebrate St. Patrick’s Day early with Leslie and the nice folks at the Muncie Map Company. You might even make some new friends. 

    Leslie Price is an independent Historic Preservation Specialist in Muncie, Indiana. She has a Master of Science in Historic Preservation from Ball State University with minors in urban planning and energy studies, and an Associate of Applied Science in hands-on building preservation from Belmont Technical College.

    Missy Camille Adams
    POP ART PRESIDENTS: HISTORICAL NOT POLITICAL
    A self-taught artist, Missy Camille Adams loves portraiture, and is not tied down to realism. She has been influenced by artists such as Andy Warhol and Chuck Close.
    For Pop Art Presidents, Missy took on the task of painting a red, white, and blue portrait of each United States president. This is a living series, Pop Art Presidents will continue with a new portrait after each election cycle.
    Outside of their time as president, who were these men? What were their families like? What lead them to run for the presidency? These questions Missy asked and researched as the project progressed.  She hopes to open discussion about the lives of those who have held this office. While the subjects were politicians, this is not a political statement as much as it is a visual tour of the men elected to run this country through the history of our nation.

    BigSkorp Furio
    is a local graphic designer and digital gfx. He uses acrylics and aerosolart techniques. The results are powerful and vibrant contemporary wall art. Meet the artist and view his work at Madjax

    The following are additional details about some of the artists showing at Madjax:

    Missy Camille:
    Art has always been a part of me. I didn't always share that part of me. Creating was therapy. My work didn't seem “good enough” to show the world. Something changed though. Art should never be hidden for fear of it being judged. Painting is my voice. I don't write or sing, but I want my art to be heard and understood. Since it is my passion, I would love to talk to you about it.  Sharing my art is as important to me now, as creating it. Portraiture is my passion. I will be showcasing my portrait work in a variety of mediums. Many of which have never been shown. Portrait work is sometimes not well received, and not understood. I create and share it anyway. Texture is a favorite of mine, so acrylic and oil paints are my most used medium. Watercolor and ink are a close second. Charcoal and pencil are my go to. My sketchbooks are many!  Hope to see you there!

She now designs her own award-winning beads in polymer, writes articles, and teaches workshops. You will find her creations today at the Minnetrista Orchard Shop.

    Palumbo’s love of art intersects with her appreciation of cultures and understanding through communication. Her career as a teacher of French, Japanese, and Spanish smoothed her way to interact with polymer artists around the globe. Buoyed by her successes in the international community, Palumbo ventured into her local art community as a member of the Muncie Artist Guild.

    Palumbo takes her citizenship in the world seriously, and her artwork often reflects her struggles to help others. She works through her feelings in glass and acrylic as well as her longtime favorite, polymer.    She is also drawn to the healing experiences only nature can provide.

    Jill Palumbo’s artwork and articles have been published in the Star Press, Polymer Café Magazine, and M Magazine. She is currently working on a mosaic project commissioned by Ball State University for the Rinard Orchid Greenhouse.

    Muncie Mystery
    Various locations

    Do you have the brains, heart and courage to solve the Muncie Mystery?

    A crime – pretend crime, of course – has been committed and we need YOUR help finding the culprit and the “weapon” used.

    Join fellow citizen CSI: Emerald City investigators for the second Muncie Mystery during First Thursday on May 6 in downtown Muncie.

    According to reports, a break-in has occurred at the Wizard of Oz’s secret Muncie laboratory in the “Emerald City” neighborhood. The suspect, despite several warnings to pay no attention to that man behind the curtain, entered the restricted area. The Wizard confronted the suspect and suffered a blow to his noggin but has not been able to identify the perpetrator.

    Six primary suspects - Wicked Witch of West, Dorothy, Scarecrow, Lion, Glinda the Good Witch and The Mayor of Munchkinland - were spotted near the scene at the time of the crime. And, lucky for our eagle-eyed investigators, several pieces of evidence were left behind.

    Between 5 and 6:30 p.m. Thursday, May 6, investigators of all ages are invited to visit 10 participating downtown businesses. At each location, you will have the chance to question suspects about their whereabouts during the time of the break in and look at crime lab reports on several possible “weapons.”

    Participating businesses are YWCA, Aspect 6, Kirk's Bike Shop, Inland Design, Vahalla (21+), IVY Tech (Fisher Building), Twin Archer, Mama Bonds and The Fickle Peach (21+).

    You can download a Crime Tracker – with map - now at www.muncieneighborhoods.org/munciemystery. You may also pick one up during First Thursday at Canan Commons or Dave’s Alley.

    Crime Trackers must be turned in at Canan Commons by 6:30 p.m. The guilty party and facts about the case will be revealed at Canan Commons at 7.

    Investigators will also be able to enjoy tethered hot air balloon “rides” and meet a Horse of a Different Color and the Runway for Rescues animals at Canan Commons during the event. The hot air balloon will be set up for photo opportunities at 5 and begin tethered rides at 6:45 p.m.

    Investigators who correctly identify the criminal and weapon will be entered into a drawing for great prizes, including 1 Overnight Stay at the Courtyard Marriott;

    2 Family Pack Tickets to see Muncie Civic Theatre’s production of The Wizard of Oz at Canan Commons; 1 Annual Family Membership to the Muncie Children's Museum; 1 Muncie Graphic Pillow from Muncie Map Co.; 1 Bruce Pizza and $10 drink certificate from Vallhalla; 2 tickets to Sept. 2 BSU football season opener game with BSU vs. Western Illinois; 1 $25 Gift Certificate to Twin Archer; 1 $25 Gift Certificate to The Caffeinery, and 1 Tethered Hot Air Balloon Ride at the event.

    You must be present to win.

    Participants are asked to follow posted mask requirements inside some downtown businesses and it is suggested masks be worn outside when in large crowds. 

    Muncie Mystery is presented by Downtown Muncie, Muncie Civic Theatre, Indiana Public Radio, Ball State PBS, Ball State Office of Community Engagement and Muncie Neighborhoods.

Whoever gets the most songs right wins a Muncie prize pack filled with goodies from The Orchard Shop at Minnetrista and Muncie Map Co.! And don’t worry, the music won’t actually be bad!

    Muncie Artist’s Guild
    Various locations
    Alison Beam-Hindman is the Muncie Artists Guild’s featured Artist of the Month for May. 

    Growing up on a small farm in Northern Indiana, Beam-Hindman learned an appreciation for the natural world from her father who also sparked her early interest in astronomy by pointing out stars by name in the clear night skies of Starke County Indiana.

    Beam-Hindman earned a Bachelor of Science in technology from Purdue University North Central, and 22 years later, earned a Master of Arts in adult education from Ball State University. After retiring from Ivy Tech Community College, Beam-Hindman took time to pursue an early interest in art. She is a self-taught artist who paints in acrylics, and as a member of the Muncie Artists Guild since 2015, she credits the other Guild members with providing the mentoring and friendship she needed to hone her artistic skills.

    Years ago, Beam-Hindman entered the open division competition at the Delaware County Fair with a painting on cardboard in poster paints and was encouraged when the space-themed painting won first place! In 2010, Beam-Hindman’s painting of Voyager II won 2nd place for Imaging, plus the Judges’ Choice Award, at the Great Lakes Astronomical League’s competition for photographers and imagers.  Her triptych paintings of Comet McNaught won first place for Imaging at the Annual Indiana Family Star Party in 2012. Several of her space-themed paintings have also won awards at the Muncie Artists Guild’s Annual Shows. 

    Beam-Hindman’s lifelong interest in astronomy and space exploration inspires much of her artwork, as do works by space artists Chesley Bonestell, David Hardy and astronaut/artist Alan Bean. Beam-Hindman is also a charter member of the Muncie Astronomy Club since 2000 and is active in the Club’s community outreach program on science education, where she uses art to promote and enhance the program.

    Alison Beam-Hindman’s original artwork will be displayed during the month of May at the following Muncie businesses:   
    Northwest Bank, 110 E Charles St
    Old National Bank, 2401 S Madison St
    Parlour at Hazelwood Hair Salon, 1300 W University Ave
    Rosebud Coffee House, 1805 S Hoyt Ave
    Vera Mae's Bistro, 209 S Walnut St.
