First Thursday – MFA Thesis Exhibition “Furtive Dialogue” by Andrew Schultz
April 6, 2017 @ 5:00 am - 8:00 pm
Muncie Arts and Culture Council and Ball State University School of Art have partnered to produce two concurrent Masters of Fine Arts thesis exhibitions at Madjax in Downtown Muncie. Furtive Dialogue by glass artist Andrew Schultz will celebrate First Thursday with an opening reception on April 6th from 5 – 8 pm. The artist will be on hand during the opening and introduced at 6:45 pm for a brief discussion of his work followed by an informal Q&A.
Andrew Schultz is a Masters of Fine Art candidate in Glass at Ball State University. Schultz’s sculptural work is designed to engage the viewer with its physical presence. A substantial portion of his work explores the dichotomy between the individual and social systems in which we exist. For Furtive Dialogue, he draws inspiration from the multifaceted ways in which we communicate, through both verbal and body languages. The exhibition celebrates the culmination of three years of research for the artist and incorporates a variety of neon, mixed media, and art glass fabrication processes and techniques. Some of the sculptures featured are interactive, and viewers are encouraged to engage with those artworks.
Andrew Schultz was born in Janesville, Wisconsin and currently lives in Muncie, where he is pursuing a Masters of Fine Art in Glass at Ball State University. Schultz received his BFA in Glass from the University of Wisconsin – River Falls in 2012. Schultz has exhibited work throughout the Midwest and Southwest including Indiana, Ohio, Kentucky, Wisconsin, and Arizona.
Light refreshments will be served and the public is invited to attend. Furtive Dialogue will remain on view through Thursday, April 20th.
