Saturday

  • PlySpace Open House + Summer Showcase 3:30pm to 7pm @ PlySpace 608 E Main St.
    PlySpace Residence

    Muncie Arts and Culture Council invites community members to an afternoon of celebration and tours during the PlySpace Open House + Summer Showcase on Saturday, September 8th. Join Muncie’s creative community for a sneak peek inside PlySpace, the home, office, and exhibition space for MACC's artist-in-residence program, and learn more about the Summer 2018 resident artists and the collaborative projects completed during the first full season of programming!

    As an artist-in-residence program, PlySpace provides dedicated space and time for participating residents to investigate and pursue their own practices. Additionally, it serves as a platform for experimentation and provocation by catalyzing conversation and collaboration with various Muncie communities. The 2018 Summer Term welcomed Dave Rowe from Las Vegas, Nevada; Kacie Lyn Martinez from Brooklyn, New York; and Anthony Bowers from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

    Installed in the PlySpace Gallery at the north end of the facility, the Summer Showcase will exhibit documents of both the personal and collaborative work conducted by all three residents during their time in Muncie. Resident Fellow and sculptor Dave Rowe worked in the studios at Madjax producing wood sculpture work in preparation for a fall exhibition at the Dairy Arts Center in Boulder, Colorado. In addition to working with the School of Art at Ball State University to offer unique casting experiences for students, he also held aluminum casting workshops for a variety of nonprofit organizations throughout Muncie. Kacie Lyn Martinez is a participatory fiber artist who joined the program as a Resident Artist and facilitated weaving workshops with groups through the YWCA Muncie and Muncie OUTreach. Her temporary public art installation, the hopes we wear on our backs, invited the community to weave their Muncie hopes into the screens along the west side of Canan Commons and will remain on view into the fall. Pool Project saw Anthony Bowers hosted several interactive art-making sessions at Tuhey Pool and Catalina Swim Club and explored the distinct communities and connectivity created by the summer pool setting. Pool-goers were given the opportunity to create cyanotype prints and participate in underwater listening activities.

    MACC members at the Ambassador and Arts Hero levels are invited to attend a VIP reception for the PlySpace Open House + Summer Showcase beginning at 3:30 pm on Saturday, September 8th. The event will open to the public at 4:30 pm. A short program will begin at 5:00 pm in the PlySpace Gallery and includes a ribbon cutting ceremony led by the Muncie-Delaware County Chamber of Commerce. Guests are invited to tour the recently renovated facility at their leisure. Guided tours will be led by PlySpace residency coordinator Erin Williams at 4:00 pm and 5:30 pm. Light refreshments will be served, and curious individuals of all ages are encouraged to attend.

    Additional event information is available at munciearts.org/openhouse or by phone at 765-215-1961. For more information on MACC membership and to upgrade or renew your memberships, please visit members.munciearts.org.

  • Main Stream: Candlepin Bowling with PlySpace Resident Heather Van Winckle 12pm @ Muncie Mall In JC Penney Wing, across from Country Charm 3501 N Granville Avenue, Muncie, Indiana, 47303

    PlySpace completes the Fall 2018 Residency Term projects with a homemade candlepin bowling alley by resident artist Heather Van Winckle at the Muncie Mall. The bowling project, Main Stream, will be located inside a vacant storefront at the mall (near JC Penney and across from Country Charm) and will be open to the public during select times from October 27th to November 4th, 2018. 

    Main Stream explores the game of bowling as an all-American pastime in an all-American location. The game of bowling is unique in that it can be learned by almost anyone at any age and only requires skill to knock down all of the pins at the end of the lane. With Main Stream, the game is reimagined as a short-length candlepin bowling lane with a soft wood surface which will take the impression of the ball after each roll, making it more difficult to roll the ball straight as the games progress. The ball used is small, only 2.5 lbs, and is easy for anyone to roll, though the lane may become difficult to navigate. The homemade lane features a built-in ball return and pin reset, bringing the game back to its simple roots, this time with an artist’s twist.

    The public is encouraged to stop by the Main Stream storefront, located across from Country Charm, to learn more about PlySpace, participate in the project, and meet the artist. 

    Open Bowling Times

    The bowling lane will be open to Muncie Mall patrons and curious community members alike. Times will also be posted at the storefront, and there is no fee to bowl. Children should be supervised by an adult.

To participate in the league, up to 6 teams per night can RSVP to hello@plyspace.org to reserve a space, first come first serve. Game play is free, but teams who miss their reservation may have to forfeit their game. No experience with bowling or league play is necessary to form a team!

    About the artist:

    Van Winkle is a project-based, interdisciplinary artist who received her MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute with major focus in sculpture. She is interested in the nuances of American culture and the definition of “normal” social behavior. About this project, she writes, “Consider ‘normal’ as the deepest set tracks in a field we all walked through. All of us took our individual footsteps, sometimes choosing a path others had laid, often deviating either on purpose or without thinking onto untouched soil. A society full of edge-cases still forms a path somewhere in-between. Even if that line truly represents no one person, it represents us collectively. Main Stream examines the ways in which we continually shape our society to either reinforce or deviate from the paths trekked before.”

Thursday

  • Double Feature Performances / Linda Ryan + Melissa Joy Livermore 6pm to 8pm @ PlySpace Gallery 608 E Main Street, Muncie, IN 47305
    Thaw: Dance Performance using a thermochromic (heat-sensitive) floor. Experiment in Tension: Fiber deconstruction using a GoPro camera attached to the body.

    Join us on First Thursday for a PlySpace Artist-in-Residence Double Feature with performances by current Fall 2018 resident Linda Ryan and past Spring 2018 resident Melissa Joy Livermore.

    Experiment in Tension //A collaborative performance with Melissa Joy Livermore and Linda Ryan

    Start Time: 2 performances, one starting at 6:00 PM and one starting at 7:00 PM

    Location: PlySpace Gallery

    Deconstruction is a practice of slowing down to engage in the present moment. The many iterations of the project have emphasized the mental space for contemplation and conversation created by removing thread after thread from a piece of fabric. “Experiment in Tension” shifts the focus to the body -- by performing a repetitive action in collaboration, the work expands Deconstruction to a multi-person endeavor centered on the mental and physical spaces we can share with others. 

    The Thaw // A dance performance by Linda Ryan

    Start Time: 2 performances, one starting at 6:30 PM and one starting at 7:30 PM

    Location: PlySpace Gallery

    “The Thaw” is a dance performed on a thermochromic (heat-sensitive) floor that changes color upon contact with the dancer's body. PlySpace Resident Linda Ryan will dance, crawl, roll, and run on the floor to create an ephemeral record of movement and body heat that will remain in memory but fade with time. This performance is the culmination of the creative research she has completed while at PlySpace this fall.

    Each performance will last about 20 minutes. There will be a short break (5-10 minutes) between performances. Please arrive and take a seat 5 minutes before the performance start time. 

    All performances will be held in the PlySpace Gallery, at 608 E. Main Street. Parking is available at the northeast corner of Main and Monroe Streets. Please use the gallery entrance on the west side of the building, located directly off of the parking lot.

    More information about the PlySpace Residency Program can be found on the PlySpace website at www.PlySpace.org

    PlySpace is a program of Muncie Arts and Culture Council in partnership with the City of Muncie, Ball State University School of Art, and Sustainable Muncie Corporation. PlySpace is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts.

RSVPs are not required, but if you need the slowdown, the tape loops, the keyboard drones, and the undulating botanical mandala projections like we do and want to make sure there's space for you, simply email Daniel Chamberlin at daniel.chamberlin@gmail.com and remember to include date information!

    Parking is available in the lot at the northeast corner of Main and Monroe Streets. Please use the PlySpace Gallery entrance directly off the parking lot.

    FaceMePorFavor

    PlySpace will hold an Open Studio on the second floor of Madjax on the first Thursday in March, from 5-8 PM. All four of the Spring term residents will offer glimpses into their creative practice and will be available to answer questions about their upcoming projects.

    Kevin Titzer
    Kevin Titzer was born and raised in Evansville, Indiana in the United States, although he has been based in the Saguenay region of Quebec for the last nine years. His sculptures are predominantly created from found and scavenged materials. His site-specific installation work is often crafted from materials gathered at the location of construction and formed into improvised house structures. These structures are highly informed by the communities they are created in. Titzer has been exhibiting professionally in art galleries for twenty years and his work has been shown in Canada, Mexico, Japan, UK, and across the United States.  

    Siena Hancock
    Siena Hancock is an interdisciplinary artist who makes sculpture, interactive installation and artist books/zines. A Boston native, Hancock graduated Massachusetts College of Art with her BFA in 2016. She has recently completed an installation at the Dirt Palace in Providence, RI and a residency at Main St Arts in Upstate, New York. Research plays an important role in Hancock’s practice, utilizing an ethnographic approach she records interviews with women as part of ongoing project Feminist Utopias. Her current work deals with cyberfeminism, alternative realities, mythology, and how technology affects social customs. 

    Matt Litwin & Victoria Eidelsztein (FaceMePor Favor)
    After graduating from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago seven years ago, Matt Litwin started his own business, Limpio Designs. The name Limpio, which means clean in Spanish, was created to help ‘clean’ oppressive environments in Chicago with positive and colorful artwork. Through Limpio, Litwin had the opportunity to work as a traveling muralist and street artist. Within the medium of murals, he painted artwork that celebrates natural ecosystems and endangered animals. These murals often juxtapose the monotone grey walls of the city with the bold and pastel colors that he paints using aerosols and latex paints. Through his travels, Litwin has inspiration from people in Argentina, Brazil, Uruguay, Thailand, Canada, and the United States. 

    Victoria Eidelsztein (Argentina) has a degree in Visual Arts with an orientation in print making. Since 2008 she has exhibited her work in different collective and individual exhibitions: Palais de Glace Museum, La Sin Futuro, El Ojo Errante Gallery, Panal 361 Artist Residency, Freudian School of Buenos Aires, among others. After graduating in 2013, she has been teaching art in different spaces in Buenos Aires: Flexible Lab, Pinta Conmigo and also at Martín Buber and September elementary schools. Her work has progressed through various media: printmaking, drawing, digital art and painting. For the last couple of years Victoria focused her work on portraits. In January and February 2019, Victoria will be a resident artist at Women's Studio Workshop in Rosendale, New York.

    Kevin Titzer is currently the Spring Fellow at PlySpace, an artist residency program of the Muncie Arts and Culture Council. "Nowhere To Be And All Day To Get There" Is the fifth installment of an ongoing project started at the end of 2017 in which Titzer traveled to different communities, such as Guadalajara, Mexico; Bloomington, Indiana; and Quebec, Canada, to create art from local resources. Through the process of scavenging materials and meeting people in the region, he worked to take in the feel of each place and its history. Titzer says, "Often different communities value and discard different things. This makes each installment unique and couldn't be created in any other place or time."

    The installation at PlySpace uses found, donated, and scavenged materials from around the area. Some of the found-object sculptures and structures will have interactive elements, like electronic movement or sound, activated by the viewer. Titzer says his final exhibition is a mix of his own experiences and reactions, "I'm left with an amalgam of images that filters through the studio. What emerges is an impressionistic view of my time spent in a specific region. In this respect, the art often reflects aspects of that community, but isn't a one to one portrait per se."

    Titzer has been working with Ball State School of Art Students in the 3D Foundations courses to explore the use of found objects in sculpture. The two classes he has worked with will be contributing found-object bird sculptures to the final exhibition, each designed and crafted by a different student.

    Kevin Titzer was born and raised in Evansville, Indiana in the United States, although he has been based in the Saguenay region of Quebec for the last nine years. He has been exhibiting professionally in art galleries for twenty years and his work has been shown in Canada, Mexico, Japan, UK, and across the United States.
