    Gallery 308
    "Artists, Faces, and Faraway Places" - 308 E Main

    "To capture beauty or reflect the personality of an individual is ultimately fulfilling, down to my soul," says artist Ron Richcreek. With photography, he tries to present the aesthetics of a subject in its natural environment in a manner that is pleasing to the eye and stirs an emotion in the observer.  With graphite, his goal is to capture a two dimensional likeness of the subject. In clay, he tries to create a sense of rhythm when developing the shape of a vessel to make it visually pleasing.

    "Artists, Faces, and Faraway places have always been a passion of mine.  As a teenager, I found photography as a form of self-expression; documenting the places and the people I thought were unique.  Photography expanded my interests into the study of drawing and, recently, working in clay.

    "My intention for the past four decades has been to catch an emotion and reflect the subject's personality. I grew up with my mother’s black and white family photos and looked through the pages of Life magazine which depicted the joys and tragedies of the world.  I saw the impact photography made on our society, even through advertising."


    Gordy Fine Art & Framing Co.
    "Back to the Old School" and "The One of Many" - 224 E Main

    Tom Spoerner spent twelve years as the Chair of the Ball State Art Department, where he encouraged scores of students in their artistic pursuits. Spoerner’s own art studio work paused as the professor completed his doctoral degree in art education and then served in various admistrative positions for the university. He was active in art education work at both state and national levels and the recipient of numerous honors, including the Art Education Association of Indiana Distinguished Fellow award.  He retired from academic life in 2002.

    "I started painting again in the summer of 2009," Spoerner explains.  While most of the professor’s works are hard-edge or abstract designs, he considers himself to be "old school" in his both his approach and appreciation of art. "I am not concerned with super realism but want my paintings to look like something, have content, and be colorful.  "All of my paintings have a story behind them."

    Working in both painting and photography, the professor has exhibited in national, regional and local exhibitions; however, this will be his first show in 34 years, which he titled, "Back to the Old School: Painting Again after a 34 Year Hiatus." Spoerner will speak about his work at 6 PM.

    Gordy Fine Art and Framing provided its first art award at this years’ Annual Student Show at Ball State.  Arranged by their gallery director, Braydee Euliss, the award gave a student an exhibit of their work at the downtown gallery. Chris Graham was chosen by the juror to receive this award and will be showing in Gordy’s small front gallery during the month of June. Graham is fascinated with big cities, and most of his subject matter involves urban scenes.
