Drawing and paintings, step aside. Sculpture will take over the gallery at Gordy Fine Art & Framing, 224 E. Main Street, Muncie Indiana, thanks to Toledo area artist Chet Geiselman. The exhibit will run May 7-30. The artist describes himself as, “a creative problem solver, a collector and arranger of objects and information, a fabricator of visual forms, and a lifelong student of spiritual and human nature.” Bauhaus design has served as a beacon for his personal creations made of wood, steel and “re-contextualized found objects.” Each of Geiselman’s pieces suggests a formal relationship to the space it inhabits and alludes to the potential functionality of the objects that compose it. The full title of this exhibit, is, “Minding the Gaps in the Foundation of the Sensual.”
The gallery hours are: Monday-Friday 9-5:30, Saturday 9-3.

For artists who are interested in finding out more about art in Detroit and possibly exhibiting there, here is a great opportunity: Hatch Art has just issued a call for entries to Hatchback, an annual juried group show. The juror is Chido Johnson, Associate Professor at the College for Creative Studies and there is no fee. Hatch is a well respected non-profit gallery and studio space. Like most Detroit art venues, the gallery is open for limited hours but it is clean, well-lit, professionally run, and has a strong following within the city’s arts community. The deadline for entry is March 3.
I showed my work at Hatchback 8 last year, and it resulted in an invitation to show more extensively in TABLEAU: Hardin, Letts, Schaedig, currently on view until February 28. The gallery is open this Saturday 1-6 and I will be on hand if anyone wants to come and scope it out.
