  • The First Guide // Immersive Installation by Adam Stacey and Makenzie Goodman 6pm to 8pm @ PlySpace Gallery 608 E Main Street, Muncie, IN 47305

    On Thursday, November 18, Adam Stacey and Makenzie Goodman will host a one-night only immersive installation entitled, "The First Guide" in the PlySpace Gallery (608 E Main Street, Muncie) from 6:00 to 8:00 pm. This event is free and open to the public. Masks are required.

    While at PlySpace Adam Stacey and Makenzie Goodman created "The First Guide", an installation focused on the past, present, and future of the White River that runs through Muncie. Through alternative and analog photography, slip-cast mold making, and an 8mm video projection they consider the historical, psychological and ecological significance the river provides to Muncie’s residents. Throughout their time as artist residents in Muncie, they have researched and interviewed residents, historians, and water advocates and explored the White River to trace past ecological trespasses and consider a way towards a sustainable future. Their installation will feature a recontextualized map of the White River made in collaboration with BSU School of Art 2D foundation students and Assistant Teaching Professor Devon Ward.

    Stacey and Goodman, based between Los Angeles and Marfa, TX, have been collaborating together since 2016. Their research-based work incorporates a range of media, including photography, ceramics, video and found objects to create installations that explore values and belief systems associated with place. Adam received his Master of Fine Arts in sculpture from Alfred University and Makenzie received her Master of Fine Arts in photography from Brooks Institute. Their work has been shown widely throughout Los Angeles and they were recent residents at Joshua Tree Highlands Artist Residency program.

    For more information about this and other Fall Term events, visit our website, www.PlySpace.org or the PlySpace Facebook page. Questions or comments about the PlySpace Residency program, events, and community collaborations can be directed to the Program Coordinator, Sarah Shaffer, at sarah@munciearts.org.

    “Ronn Brown – Portraits”: Gordy Fine Art and Framing celebrates our exhibition of photographs by career photographer Ronn Brown. The exhibition opening party, with live music by Dan Wright and his guitar, is free to the public on Thursday March 3 from 5 – 8 pm.  Refreshments will be served, and the artist will be on hand to engage with visitors. The show will remain on view until April 2. 

    A native of East Central Indiana, Mr. Brown was based in Los Angeles for over 20 years.  In Los Angeles, he focused mainly on photographing musicians, actors and models, and often worked for producers in the film and music industries. This kind of photography requires superb technical skills in operating the camera and lights, but he became highly sought after because of his bold imagination placing his subjects in inventive poses and dress. As his career progressed, he became increasingly interested in his rapport with the models and he would engage with them on a more personal level. To achieve specific lighting effects, he will rent rooms with windows positioned for just the right kind of natural light. The exhibition at Gordy is a selection of 20 images made in the past six years showing Mr. Brown’s unique talent for drawing out emotions that are both expressive and contemplative.  Most of the portraits on view were made working intensively with the model during extended studio sessions in both Los Angeles and Muncie.  Some are more spontaneous images of people he finds in public places. 

    In 2020, Brown returned to Indiana and is now living in Muncie. Before moving to Los Angeles in 1997, he attended Ball State in the photojournalism and art departments. He credits much of his career success to Jack’s Camera Shop in Downtown Muncie where he taught lighting classes for 12 years. There refined his studio skills that made his eventual career one of many that were launched at Jack’s. 

    The show will be on view with works for sale through April 2. 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. Business hours: Monday through Friday, 9 am – 5:30 pm, Saturday, 10 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.

    Muncie Artist’s Guild
    Various locations
    Muncie Artist’s Guild: Artist-of-the-Month:
    Jean McCauley is an award-winning artist who has been a member of the Muncie Artists Guild for over twenty years. She paints predominately in oils and pastels, but occasionally uses acrylics and watercolor. Her works are primarily landscapes, but she has more recently been painting a variety of dog portraits for family and friends. Jean has exhibited in many shows, receiving numerous awards, and is a member of Richmond Art Museum, Art Association of Henry County (Best of Show in 2021), Art Association of Randolph County (Awards of Excellence), Minnetrista, Muncie Art Students’ League (where she served as president in 2015 and co-president in 2021), and the David Owsley Museum of Art Alliance to name a few. Jean has studied with a wide variety of well known and highly respected artists, including Carol Strock-Wasson, Mary Ann Davis, and Pam Newell. She also has been a part of several interesting art projects throughout the years including the Muncie Artists Guild’s mural paintings (one located in City Hall, the other in the Arts & Journalism Building at Ball State University). In 2014 Jean was one of 14 artists selected to paint a violin for the 50th Anniversary of Emens Auditorium. In 2016 she was selected to participate in the Art of Sail Exhibition in Miami Florida which featured 30 artists from throughout the US. Each artist was provided a 36x36” segment of sailcloth from a retired jib sail. Additionally, Jean accompanied her son, David, on Artist in Residencies at the Vermont Studio Center and at the Santa Fe Art Institute. She continues to paint and show her work throughout central Indiana. Her paintings have been inspired by the beauty and simplistic aspects of nature and the world in which we live. Jean hopes her work evokes a pleasing and meaningful calm, capturing a sense of peace for a quieter, more thoughtful, almost forgotten time.

    Jean McCauley’s work will be shown at the following locations:

    There will be activities at Canan Commons and sites throughout downtown Muncie from 5-8 pm. Featuring:

    Hosted by Muncie Downtown Development, Muncie Chapters of the YMCA, the Audubon Society, and Madjax. 

    Book Arts Collaborative (at Madjax)

    Book Arts Collaborative will be in the shop working on final projects during First Thursday if anyone wants to stop in to watch or ask questions.

    Cornerstone Center for the Arts
    520 E. Main
    Cornerstone Center for the Arts will host an exhibition by Matt Blanchfield titled “Befuddled Redux.” The artist states: “I paint and draw whatever draws my or my wife's interest, from fantasy to realism and back to abstraction.” Blanchfield’s show will be in the 2nd floor gallery at Cornerstone.

    Gordy Fine Art & Framing Co. 
    224 E. Main
    Gordy Fine Art and Framing will open an exhibition and sale of new paintings and sculpture by Alfredo Marín-Carle, Thursday April 7th, 5-8 pm. Marín-Carle joined the faculty at Ball State University in 1985. He is now Associate Professor Emeritus and resides in Indianapolis. Throughout the evening, he will be on hand to engage with viewers and answer questions. Light refreshments will be served and the public is invited to attend. 

    At 6:15 the artist will give a 10-15 minute presentation about his work and answer questions. 

    Visions, the title of the exhibit, states simply that these works of art convey what the artist sees, reflecting his lifetime fascination with eastern philosophies. “In the process of creation, I experience the Buddhist concept of interdependence,” says Marín-Carle, “that nothing exists on its own.” The artist builds up layers and then sands them down. He uses stencils to apply forms and shapes, then rubs them with chemicals and carves deep and aggressive marks that disturb their clarity. In this way he is exploring the creation and destruction always going on around us.

    The show will be on view with works for sale through May 28. 

    Gordy Fine Art and Framing Company promotes talented artists, provides appraisals, and offers expert design and craftsmanship for framing and displaying treasured family possessions and works of art. Business hours: Monday through Friday, 9 am – 5:30 pm, Saturday, 10 am – 3 pm. Gordy Fine Art and Framing Company is located at 224 East Main Street, next door to Muncie Civic Theatre.

    Diane is a painter, enamelist, and teacher, and her work will be on display in various locations throughout the city including Old National Bank, Northwest Bank, Hazelwood Hair Salon, Rosebud Coffee House, and Vera Mae’s.

    Diane’s life as an artist has evolved over 50 years, yet the source of inspiration has remained constant. She is affected by her surroundings where she lives and works in her home studio on a lake in North Anderson.  The abundant ever-present fodder, wildlife, deer, blue herons, eagles, osprey, waterfowl, and fish provide a constant source of tranquility, and subject matter, which is revealed through the exploration and use of color in multiple layers of paint or enameling, (which is Glass fired onto metal at 1,450 degrees.) Other sources for subject matter come from her dedication to serving others through a food assistance program at Trinity Episcopal church.  She is energized by sharing her experiences through teaching and displaying her art.

    Diane is a graduate from Ball State University in 1988. She continued her graduate work through 1995. She is an art teacher with an emphasis in painting and metal design and enameling.  Diane taught art at Daleville Community Schools and is retired from South Madison School Corporation in Pendleton Indiana.  She continues to teach classes in painting and enameling to all ages at Pendleton Artist Society, Gallery 119 on a regular basis. 

    Diane has won numerous awards from, the Indiana State fair, Madison County Artist Society, Pendleton Artist Society, Muncie Artist Guild and was accepted in the Hoosier Salon.

    Muncie Makes Lab
    628 S. Walnut
    William Mueller is an MFA Candidate at Ball State University. His thesis exhibition ‘Operating Cost’ is a collection of works with a narrative of how public relation, marketing, and advertising campaigns can persuade the public opinion and how we as consumers are to handle that information. The work is constructed primarily with cast concrete, a material that is known for its aesthetic value in modern architecture. This material is viewed as strong, resilient, and sustainable when in fact it can be brittle, require frequent maintenance, and is the third leading contributor to greenhouse gases. Our perception of the world around us is not always correct and quite often, it is shaped by firms that seek to do so for ulterior motives. This work challenges the viewer to think critically about the information that we take for granted.

    520 E. Main
    Presented by PrimeTrust Federal Credit Union and Cornerstone Center for the Arts, the 2022 Muncie Young Artist Exhibition Juried Art Competition is a celebration of young artists throughout Delaware County. 

    The theme of the 2022 Young Artist Exhibition Juried Art Competition is “My Community”. Over the past two years, our understanding of community has shifted as every aspect of our lives has changed from the familiar, to the digital unknown, to something completely different, a mix of the before-times and the future. Through it all, we have had our community - whether it was learning something new with our classmates on Zoom, having socially distanced holiday dinners, or getting back outside to play with our friends for what felt like the first time in forever, we had each other to get through this unprecedented time in our lives.

    Contestants are invited to submit up to two (2) works of art in the following categories: 2D (painting, drawing), 3D (sculpture, fiber arts, ceramics), and Intermedia (photography, videography, digital animation). No more than two submissions will be accepted per student. Entry is open through Friday, April 1st 2022.

    Winning artworks will be displayed in the Judith Barnes Memorial Gallery at Cornerstone Center for the Arts beginning May 5th. The YAE Awards Ceremony will take place Friday, May 20th from 5-8 PM in the Auditorium at Cornerstone Center for the Arts.

    Muncie Artist’s Guild
    Various locations
    The Muncie Artists Guild's Artist of the Month is Marta Stephens!
    Her work will be on view at the following locations downtown: 
    Vera Mae's, Northwest Bank, Old National, Rose Bud Coffeehouse, and Parlour.

    Marta Stephens was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, but has called Indiana her home since the age of four. Her formal art education includes courses at U.C.L.A, the Pasadena Art Center College of Design, and Ball State University.  However, while at Ball State, she changed her major and earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Journalism/Public Relations in 2001. 

    Marta has been painting for over 40 years. She is an active member of the Muncie Artists Guild since 2018 and has won several awards for her artwork. Her painting style has continuously evolved through experimentation and studying works of contemporary and traditional impressionist artists. She remains open to learning new techniques. Thus, this self-taught artist’s style is in a constant state of development. 

    She has worked with a variety of mediums including ink, washes, clay, and charcoals. Several years later she began exploring oils and acrylics. The subject matters of her paintings are primarily still lifes and landscapes. Gardening is one of her other creative passions, so inspiration often comes from nature and the study of light, shadows, and textures.

    Marta is also a published author of crime mystery novels all of which have received several awards and recognitions over the years. Her recent publication in 2021 is an anthology of short mysteries. Marta retired in 2020 from Ball State University, Human Resources, after 41 years. Since then, she has pursued her life-long passion—art.

    For more information about Marta’s artwork and novels, visit www.mstephensbooks.com. Follow her on Facebook, https://www.facebook.com/marta.stephens2/.
