  • Cornerstone Center for the Arts Ceramics Showcase 5pm to 12:42pm @ Cornerstone Center for the Arts 2nd Floor Art Gallery 520 E Main, Muncie, IN 47305

    Join Cornerstone Center for Arts for a gallery exhibition of art created through Cornerstone’s ceramic classes. This showcase will feature artwork by skilled instructors Jasen Combs and Eugene Boyd as well as many of their talented students. The student work ranges from those that have been working with clay for a short time, to students that have worked with clay for nearly a decade. The exhibition features a range of ceramic pieces, from vases and bowls to elaborate wall hangings, many of which will be for sale. Cornerstone is proud to showcase instructors Jasen Combs and Eugene Boyd along with their students.

     Jasen Combs has been teaching at Cornerstone Center for the Arts for 14 years. Combs received his Bachelors of Fine Arts in Ceramics from Ball State University in 1996 and went on to receive his Masters Degree in Ceramics in 2001. He creates both wheel thrown pottery as well as hand built altered wall hangings. His teaching philosophy is to let the students experience the clay with all their senses.  He wants them to touch, feel and make the clay move. Combs loves it when they have no previous experience with clay and he can watch how they develop and grow in the class. 

     Eugene Boyd became familiar with Cornerstone Center for Arts when his granddaughter began taking ballet and piano classes. Boyd took a ceramics class in 2011 at Cornerstone, and fell in love with clay. He continued taking classes at Cornerstone as well as working with a well-known potter in the community. Now, Boyd has his own studio, and teaches ceramics to adults and children at Cornerstone. He enjoys the opportunity to share his passion with his students and hopes they enjoy working with clay as much as he does.

     The opening reception for the Cornerstone Ceramics Showcase, will take place on Thursday, December 7, 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 December.

    For more information about the gallery exhibition, call Cornerstone’s Department of Education & Communication at 765-281- 9503, ext. 23 or visit

  • October First Thursday 5pm @ Cornerstone Center for the Arts The Judith Barnes Memorial Gallery 520 E Main St

    Join Cornerstone Center for Arts on Thursday, October 4 for the opening reception of A Nature Walk with God, featuring a collection of landscape paintings by regional artist Barbara Kuntz. The reception will take place in the newly renovated Judith Barnes Memorial Gallery on the second floor of Cornerstone Center for the Arts from 5:00 to 7:00 pm in conjunction with October’s First Thursday ArtsWalk.


    In the collection, A Nature Walk with God, artist Barbara Kuntz utilizes the act of painting to explore a journey of self-expression. Drawn to nature as a place of rejuvenation, Barbara began each painting using only the memories of places she has been as inspiration. She then allows the painting to evolve into an image of its own making. This experiential process encourages the paint colors, the paint brushes, and a little technique to create work that allows the imperfections in life to exist without an eraser. Barbara has found natural reoccurring subjects; trees, water, rocks, and sky within her body of work creating a sense of solitude and peace.


    Barbara Kuntz is a retired art educator who loves nature. She graduated from Ball State University with a Bachelor of Science in Art Education. She later earned a Master’s in Education from Indiana Wesleyan University, Marion, Indiana. Barbara taught in Fort Wayne Community Schools on the elementary level for 21 years. Barbara currently resides in Fort Wayne, Indiana.


    ­­­A Nature Walk with God will be on display and open to the public in the Judith Barnes Memorial Gallery throughout the month of October.
