To this goal, all YART Art will be priced below $40! YART works to enable local creative entrepreneurs and to improve the Muncie economy. Shop local, support independents, enjoy your town!

Each YART Artist will be present throughout YART to meet the public, discuss their Art, handle sales personally, and some Artists will be making Art LIVE at YART!

    Gordy Fine Art & Framing Co. 
    224 E. Main
    Gordy Fine Art and Framing is honored to celebrate the 5th anniversary of On the Mark, For the City, the colorful mural on the Mark III Tap Room, with an exhibition and sale of artworks by the four artists who planned, designed, and painted that mural.  The opening party for this exhibition will be First Thursday, June 2 from 5 to 8 pm with an artists’ talk by Faith Kellermeyer and Jannell Summers at 6:15.

    Following the tragic events at the Orlando Pulse Nightclub in 2016, JoAnna Darda, Braydee Euliss, Faith Kellermeyer, and Jannell Summers were inspired to work hand-in-hand to create a piece of public art that would illustrate Muncie’s acceptance of and support for people of all backgrounds.  These four women artists raised the funds, figured out the logistics, designed and painted the mural. Throughout the process they invited the community to help in the creation of the mural.

    Making Their Mark looks at each of these women as artists.  JoAnna, a textile artist, focuses on color, texture, and function. Braydee is a visual artist and curator that explores human relationships with objects, spaces, and institutions. Faith, a painter, focuses on narratives that embrace universal experiences. Jannell works in various mediums that blend 70s color and design with modern day attitudes. 

    The show will be on view with works for sale through August 26. 10% of all sales of artworks will go to support Muncie OUTreach and its mission to provide an accepting environment to enhance the personal growth of gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and questioning youth in the Delaware County area. 

    Gordy Fine Art and Framing 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 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

    Karen is the owner of Art Mart as well as a member of Muncie Artist Guild and former president. Currently she is the chair of the Susie Burns Memorial Scholarship Committee and Events Committee chair. She is also a member of the Mayor’s Public Arts Committee, NAMTA, and iAMart, an international organization of Independent Art Materials Retailers. 

    Karen earned her Master’s degrees in education from Ball State University in 1990 and purchased Art Mart along with her husband Paul in 2003. Karen has taught art classes to many young students and adults through the years. She still interacts with many of those same folks, with their children, and some of their grandchildren. She does ArtCamp in the summertime and often goes to family art festivals in the area to demonstrate one process or another. She taught classes at Cornerstone Center for the Arts for several years.
