gordy fine art framing is celebrating 22 years of business in downtown muncie’s historic arts and cultural district. they invite the public to join them for an anniversary party during the 1st thursday gallery walk on july 7th from 5 to 8 pm.
the gallery wall will be filled – salon-style – with works by their 13 featured artists, there will be painting demonstrations – jim faulkner at 5:30 and paul laseau at 6:30 – and there will be cake! we’ll still have the traditional wine and cheese, but 22 years for a family business deserves a big, beautiful cake, offers genny gordy, and award-winning painters working at their easels.
exhibiting artists include kim anderson, carol burt, david dale, eric ernstberger, faulkner, charlene george, brian gordy, suzanne lambert, laseau, jan mccune, alan patrick, margie prim, and carol strock-wasson, and many will be on hand throughout the evening. the public is invited to attend the free event.
brian and genny gordy purchased the downtown art store in july of 1989. many tweaks later, the couple has settled on their own formula for success: fine art and fine framing in a gallery setting. the art supplies department left years ago, and is now in the village, owned by their bsu college chum, karen fisher.
when our son, ben, joined us in 2002, we decided to seriously focus on designing and manufacturing our own frame profiles, alongside traditional framing methods. brian explains. their plan and hard work paid off and both men have been awarded the distinctive indiana artisan designation for their frame lines. their reputation has earned the duo clients that include museum directors, fine art collectors and artists from throughout the midwest and beyond. we serve a full spectrum of clients, from proud grandparents to directors to sports fans and spoon collectors, brian notes.
gordy fine art framing co. is located at 224 e. main street, next door to muncie civic theatre. for more information, call 765-284-8422 or visit www.gordyframing.com.
