    Join Cornerstone Center for Arts for First Thursday on July 6, 2017 for an opening reception and art show featuring the art of Wesley Nally. The show titled “Colors in the Life of an Artist” captures everyday life through the eyes of the artist depicted in a range of expressive colors. 

    The collection explores a coming of age for Nally who has grown as an artist through his life experiences. Each piece in the show was created to provoke thought using colors chosen to symbolize various emotions. The connection between subject and color helps to express the feelings behind each piece. 

    Nally is an Indiana native from Blackford County who studied art as a student and previously served as the resident cartoonist for the Bruins School Newspaper while at Blackford High School. He says that this collection has been “a lifetime coming and serves as his reintroduction to the world of art.” 

    The opening reception of “Colors in the Life of an Artist” will take place on Thursday, July 6 from 5 to 8 p.m. at the Cornerstone Art Gallery on the second floor of Cornerstone Center for the Arts. The show will be on display and open to the public throughout the month of July.

    1206.jpg

    Join Cornerstone Center for Arts for First Thursday on June 1, 2017 for an opening reception and art show featuring the art of Sarah Shaffer. The show titled “We Are What We Think” is a series of drawings and paintings that utilize the visual representation of neurons to portray the human body.

     Inspiration for the collection came from the affects neurons have on who we are as people. As we grow our minds and personalities are shaped by experience; we literally are what we think. Each piece is an illustration of neurons forming various parts of the body as well as the entire human figure.

     The opening reception of “We Are What We Think” will take place on Thursday, June 1 from 5 to 8 p.m. at the Cornerstone Art Gallery on the second floor of Cornerstone Center for the Arts. The show will be on display and open to the public throughout the month of June.

     Sarah Shaffer is a native of Indiana, growing up in Fort Wayne with a love of art from an early age. Sarah is a graduate of Ball State University's Art Department, with a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Metalsmithing earned in 2007. Sarah lives with her husband and daughter in Muncie, Indiana, and works as an art instructor for Cornerstone Center for the Art as well as a commissioned artist.

    1175.jpg 1176.jpg 1177.jpg 1178.jpg

    Join Cornerstone Center for Arts for First Thursday on May 4, 2017 for an opening reception and art show featuring the art of Leon Crosby. The show titled “Synesthesia” which means to see sound in color, is an exploration of art as a representation of musical expression.

    Each vibrant painting in the collection was inspired by a piece of music and captures the feelings emoted by that particular song. Using techniques incorporating watercolor, gradients, and multiple stylings Crosby created colorful emotions that spur the imagination. To allow the viewer to appreciate the symbiosis of the artwork paired with song, QR codes and headphones will be available the evening of the opening allowing participants to experience the musical inspiration of each painting using just their cell phone and QR scanner.

    The opening reception will take place from 5:00 to 8:00 pm at the Cornerstone Art Gallery on the second floor of Cornerstone Center for the Arts. The show will be on display and open to the public throughout the month of May.

    Leon, a visual arts instructor at Cornerstone, was born in Toledo Ohio and started his journey in art at a young age. His biggest inspirations come from Japanese art, American Graffiti, and comic book graphics. He has received both formal and informal instruction from the Toledo Museum of Art and the University of Toledo and regularly displays and sells his art throughout the Muncie community. In addition to teaching at Cornerstone, Leon has volunteered his time at Sutton Elementary and has several private lesson students. His passion for art and teaching encourages him to inspire his students to make the world a more beautiful place.

    1080.jpg 1081.jpg

    Cornerstone Center for the Arts, Shafer Leadership Academy, and Harmony Dance Group will partner this spring for a unique leadership workshop through tango dancing. The workshop titled, Movement: Exploring leadership through the art of tango, will be on Tuesday, February 21 from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. at Cornerstone Center for the Arts in the Grand Hall.

    This three-hour long program is designed to increase an individual’s understanding of leadership, following, and two way communications through the use of tango dancing as a metaphor and teaching tool. The workshop is not a dance class but a lesson in leadership through the fundamentals of the art form. Participants will leave with a better concept of leadership which they can apply to their business and personal lives.

    In addition, participants will walk away with a clear understanding of the difference between management and leadership, a recognition of the two-way nature of communication in all forms of leader and follower connections, tools to diagnose breakdowns in communication between leaders and followers, and active advice on how to re-establish trust and confidence in team members and to build up communication within a group.

    This workshop is open to anyone seeking to improve their personal and business relationships. The workshop is $25 per person to attend and is limited to 20 participants. Registration is available online at shaferleadership.com/movement/. For more information or questions about the workshop, call Shafer Leadership Academy at 765-748-0403. 

    Cost: $25 per person
