Carol Burt is an artist who expresses her unique voice and personality in ceramic art.  Her command of forming clay has earned her recognition as an Indiana Artisan where she represents Muncie’s artistic vibrancy around the state.  Her skill in decorating through paints, glazes, carving, sgraffito, etc., seems limitless.

She is active in a collegial group of 1-2 dozen ceramic artists at the John Peterson Studio north of Muncie.  Muncie is known as a center for ceramic art in large part because of the Bethel Pike Pottery led by Mr. Peterson and Alan Patrick.  Carol Burt is one of the more accomplished members of this second generation of artists who regularly make work together and are influenced by each other.  

Burt known for her pottery has also started showcasing her lighthearted paintings that will bring a smile to your face.   “I’m known more as a potter than a painter, but the success of my pottery comes from my training as a painter. Painting was my first love, and when I realized I could apply those skills to my thrown forms, I ended up with the best of both worlds!” says Burt.

As a former graduate student at Ball State University, she continues to be active in the academic environment thinking of herself as a lifelong learner and staying involved with current students.  

Burt is also a K-5 art teacher in Muncie Community Schools at East Washington Academy since 2009.  She has served on the board of the Art Education Association of Indiana for nine years.  She teaches a full curriculum of 2D and 3D techniques including ceramics, watercolor, pencil, pen and ink, mosaic, printmaking, pastel, and assemblage, as well as art history.  Beyond her regular class load, she also runs a program called “Special Art” for particularly talented visual art students in 3rd-5th grades. 

Her awards include Outstanding Educator in Higher Education from the Art Education Association of Indiana in 1995, Muncie Community Schools Educator of the Year in 2004, and the Art Education Association of Indiana Distinguished Fellow, 2005.

MUGS

Throughout the month of October Gordy Fine Art and Framing Company will have for sale lots of MUGS made by local potters Kim Anderson, Sue Beach, Carol Burt, John Peterson, Marty Price, and Kyle Rees. Everyone needs a mug for their morning brew. These mugs blend together practicality with art.

During Artswalk on Thursday, October 3rd to continue this theme, selfie mugs shots will be available for you to take by yourself or with family and friends.  Light refreshments of bars (lemon, heavenly, and fruity) will be served. Greg Pyle and Austin Burton will be in the house providing tunes to make you smile.

Sunlight in the Gallery

The gallery looks beautiful this time of year.  Strong sunlight sneaks in under the awning and bounces off the 100-year old polished wood floor, giving the whole space a perfect “artist’s light.”  Coffee and cookies await guests – a recent addition to our daily customer service list. On the wall – that beautiful, historic, absolutely authentic gallery way – Larry Graham’s photos and (surprise) rather abstract paintings hang. Good stuff.  Graham was our professor at Ball State University, and we are so pleased to exhibit his work. He has many followers, friends, former students, and they still trickle in, catching these last days of his show, up through November 30th.

Then comes the Annual Salon Show, opening on December 6th! We represent two dozen artists (listed below), and for the Annual Salon, we exhibit up to 3 pieces from each of them.  This is one of the times we are most pleased to have a hanging system in place on our gallery wall. Trying to arrange up to 50 pieces of art is tough, but it would ruin our beloved wall if we were placing nails each time, and we don’t have to do that. (We installed a Walker Hanging System years ago; no nails!) The Annual Salon is typically our greatest challenge, as far as art hangings go, but the resulting exhibit is always breathtaking. Fortunately, the exhibit stays up for two months, through January 31, 2013.  Pieces that sell, in the meantime, can be easily removed and some minor tweaking will correct the arrangement of paintings, drawings and prints.

Please consider bringing any of your out-of-town guests downtown for a gallery visit, complete with coffee and cookies. They will get a good look at the dynamic art scene we enjoy here in Muncie and Delaware County. Perhaps they’ll even want to take some art home! GFAF artists include: Kim Anderson (pottery), Scott Anderson (painting), Sue Beach (pottery), Carol Burt (pottery), David Dale (pastels), Eric Ernstberger (acrylics), Jim Faulkner (watercolors), Charlene George (oils), Brian Gordy (watercolors), Corey Hagelberg (printmaking), David Johnson (printmaking), Sarojini Johnson (printmaking), Suzanne Marie Lambert (acrylics), Paul Laseau (watercolor), Cheryl Anne Lorance (bronze & glass sculptures) Jan McCune (jewelry), Alan Patrick (oils), John Peterson (pottery), Martin Price (pottery), Margie Prim (oils) and Carol Strock-Wasson (oils).
