Art is alive: Soup Kitchen of Muncie’s Dinner

Some of the finest artists in East Central Indiana have donated their art to the Soup Kitchen of Muncie’s Dinner and Auction.  Works include paintings, pottery, jewelry, a hand built clock and even a signed picture of Phyllis Diller.

This auction will be a great way to add to one’s personal art collection. Many of the generous artists have exhibited their work in major shows and galleries in the Mid-West  including Nashville’s Brown County Art Guild and Richmond Museum of Art.  Several have had one-person shows at Muncie’s Gordy’s Fine Art and Framing Company. One piece was done specifically for this sale.  It is the young artist’s first venture into the professional arena.  To prove his ability, he is a prize winner at the current Minnetrista Annual Juried Show.  We are proud to have his work.

Gunther Cartwright, emeritus professor at Rochester Institute of Technology and an artist in his own right, has photographed all of the pieces. When not doing professional camera work, he is a regular Friday Soup Kitchen of Muncie volunteer dishwasher.

Support of the art auction will help feed our neighbors who are hungry.  That has been the mission of the Soup Kitchen of Muncie for 24 years.
