Muncie Mayor’s Arts Awards Recipients: 

13 Visual Artists 

Gordy Fine Art and Framing is promoting the 2021 Mayor’s Arts Awards program by presenting a show of visual art made by Award recipients from previous years. Since 2015, awards have been given to 24 individuals and organizations. 13 of these are visual artists and we are proud to present their works for sale beginning on the evening of ArtsWalk to anticipate the 2021 Awards celebration in November.

The 13 artists are Jonathan Becker, Braydee Euliss, Jim Faulkner, Ned Griner, Heidi Hale, Bob Hartley, Maura Jasper, Ann Johnson, Kim Miller, John Peterson, Michael Prater, Rachel Replogle, and Lynette Waters-Whitesell.

At 6:15, a 10-minute presentation honoring all award winners and nominees, will be given by Carl Schafer, chair of this year’s Mayor’s Arts Awards Steering Committee and Gordy co-owner.   “The 13 artists in this show represent a vast range of artistic expression,” Schafer says. “Because the awards are made from an open nomination process, all art forms are given equal weight.”

The goal of this show is to help cultivate greater visibility and understanding of the value of the arts, as well as grow new leadership and new patrons of the arts. The show will be on view with all works for sale through November 19.
