Annual Salon Show
Dec 4 2014 – Jan 31 2015
If you ask any member of the Gordy team, fine art is like fine chocolate; you can never have too much. So it is with some satisfaction that they fill their oversized gallery wall once a year with dozens of paintings, prints, and drawings from the trove of artists they represent. Tables and display cases hold handmade jewelry, pottery, and sculptures made by local hands. “We exhibit the work of over two dozen artists,” offers Brian Gordy. “The annual salon show is a challenge to hang, but the impact when patrons walk in the door is worth all that time I spend on a ladder.”
Featured artists include: Kim Anderson, Scott Anderson, Sue Beach, Carol Burt, David Dale, Chet Geiselman, Eric Ernstberger, Braydee Euliss, Jim Faulkner, Charlene George, Corey Hagelberg, Art Hazelwood, Brian Gordy, Genny Gordy, David Johnson, Sarojini Johnson, Suzanne Lambert, Paul Laseau, Cheryl Anne Lorance, Jan McCune, Shonet Lambert Martin, Tom Minkler, Ted Neal, Alan Patrick, John Peterson, Martin Price, Margie Prim, Cathy Spiaggia, Kyle Rees, Carol Strock Wasson
The show hangs through January 31, 2015, minus any sold pieces. “This is the only time we allow patrons to take purchased pieces out of an exhibit,” says Gordy. “I do quite a bit of re-arranging throughout the two month run.” Visitors may view the show during normal business hours: Monday – Friday, 9 AM to 5:30 PM, Saturday, 9 to 3, or by appointment.
In addition to the Salon exhibit, a Ball State University art student will exhibit her works in the Nook gallery at the front of Gordy’s space. Titled, “Grey Line Performance,” Sibley Barlow’s work explores painting and performance, as well as the murky area that exists in between. Her paintings pull from the language of abstraction. The ink and watercolor works serve as records of her previous performances.
A short talk about the exhibits will be given during the opening at 6:15 PM. Patrons are encouraged to participate and ask any questions they may have about the works.
Light refreshments will be served, and the public is invited to attend. Gordy Fine Art & Framing is located at 224 East Main Street. For more information, visit Gordy Fine Art & Framing on Facebook or phone (765)284-8422.
