SKETCH: The Art of Study
April 2 – May 2, 2015
The GFAF team may be small, but their collective passion for building a community of art appreciators couldn’t be bigger. Monthly rotating exhibits and artist talks raise awareness and increase the accessibility of various art forms in the gallery. In an effort to pursue this passion more thoroughly, they have designed an entire exhibit around the idea of studying art.
For the month of April, Gordy Fine Art & Framing Company will focus on the practice and process of creating art. The exhibit, SKETCH: The Art of Study is a group show featuring an array of preparatory work that represents what sketching is and can be for artists who work in both 2 and 3 dimensions with all types of materials. Thirteen participating artists will be introduced at the First Thursday opening reception on April 2, 2015, at 6:15 PM. The public is encouraged to attend and ask questions about the exhibit and the different methods employed by each to create the various pieces.
Exhibiting artists include Scott Anderson, Hannah Barnes, Joseph, Bilello, Josh Cogeshall, Brian Gordy, David Johnson, Alan Patrick, Mary Ann Rahe, Kristen Reeves, Jacinda Russell, Janice Shimizu, and Juli Thorson. While each artist uses sketching techniques, patrons will see both similarities and great differences in the final works of art. A sketching station will be set up for patrons to try their hands at drawing a likeness. Art teachers will be on hand to encourage and assist participants.
Light refreshments will be served, and the public is invited to attend. Gordy Fine Art & Framing is located at 224 East Main Street, next door to Muncie Civic Theatre. For more information call (765)284-8422, or visit us on facebook .
