Kevin Campbell – Pieces of Infinity

           

The exhibition Pieces of Infinity showcases the paintings and sculpture by artist Kevin Campbell.  All of the works are expressions of the interconnectedness of the natural world.  Each individual piece is “inherently part of something larger than itself,” says Campbell speaking about what has driven his art for decades.

The exhibit will be anchored by his drawing of tiny interlocking puzzle pieces which is well over 100 square feet.  The drawing is a map that guides his Puzzle Project and will be shown to the public for the first time to offer viewers a direct understanding of the artist’s motivation.   The Puzzle Project is a work of art that has no edge and so it “can be added onto – can ‘grow’ indefinitely.  As it grows, pieces and groups of pieces are separated and treated as individual works of art.”  These pieces and groups of pieces will be hung and for sale in the Gordy gallery.  Those who own a piece of the Puzzle Project will forever have a place in the larger composition.

“Works of art are often referred to as ‘pieces of art,’” says Gordy owner Carl Schafer.  “For Kevin Campbell this is literally true.  He is making only one work of art that has many pieces.  The title of the show, Pieces of Infinity refers to the fact that Campbell has placed no boundaries on his single work of art.  It can continue forever and each piece will always have its place.”

Pieces of Infinity will be exhibited throughout the month of March.  Gordy Fine Art and Framing Company promotes talented artists and offers expert design and craftsmanship for framing and displaying treasured family possessions and works of art. Business hours: Monday through Friday, 9 am – 5:30 pm, Saturday, 9 am – 3 pm. Gordy Fine Art and Framing Company is located at 224 East Main Street, next door to Muncie Civic Theatre.  For more information, visit www.gordyframing.com or call 765-284-8422.

The Paintings of Jim Faulkner

Gordy Fine Art and Framing Company will open “The Paintings of Jim Faulkner” on First Thursday, February 4, 5 – 8 pm. Included in the show will be more than a dozen watercolor paintings by the artist who will be on hand to engage with viewers and answer questions. Light refreshments will be served, and the public is invited to attend.

Faulkner’s dedication, sensitivity, and skill as a painter for more than 50 years has made him one of the most loved and revered artists in this region and statewide. His artistic excellence and contributions to Muncie’s cultural vitality were honored last summer during the inaugural Mayor’s Arts Awards where Faulkner was recognized with the award for Artist in the Community. He has been a full time painter since 1977 at his country home that he shares with his wife Eleanor. They are both great animal lovers, and his studio is in a restored barn.

“I am very taken by the constant change taking place in everything,” says Faulkner. “The new that decays, becoming the old. In the natural world, both new and old seem to hold my interest… I paint the meadows, woods, homesteads, towns, and people of the Midwest, trying to find meaning in the stillness of an old abandoned farm, or the quiet of a snow-covered wood, or even the aging of the human face.”

“Weathered buildings and bent trees are central to the images in this exhibition,” says gallery owner Carl Schafer. “They are evidence of the constant winds and shifting limestone bedrock in our region that have pushed them and allowed them to settle at slightly precarious angles. Over the course of his career, Faulkner has succeeded in defining East Central Indiana’s wide open landscape.”

At 6:15, Carl and Barbara Schafer will introduce Faulkner to those attending, and tributes that have been gathered from his close friends and colleagues will be read. Those attending the event will be invited to write their memorable experiences with the artist and things they find impressive about his accomplishments.

The Paintings of Jim Faulkner may also be viewed during regular business hours: Monday through Friday, 9 am – 5:30 pm, Saturday, 9 am – 3 pm. Gordy Fine Art and Framing Company is located at 224 East Main Street, next door to Muncie Civic Theatre. For more information, visit us on facebook or call 765-284-8422.
