Muncie, IN—Join Cornerstone Center for the Arts on Thursday, November 7 for the opening reception of Inamorata & the Floating City featuring art by Sarah Richcreek. The reception will take place in the Judith Barnes Memorial Gallery on the second floor of Cornerstone from 5 to 7 p.m. in conjunction with November’s First Thursday events.
Intrigued by the connection between emotion and perception, artist Sarah Richcreek, found herself suddenly stricken by incessant waves of conflicting emotions and so began to write poetry as a cathartic way of healing. She sent herself overseas to find peace in the things that she could not control and ended up in Venice; a majestic, proud island-city that is weather worn and salt blasted, but as luminous as a faceted jewel. The collection of images and poems displayed here reflects Sarah Richcreek’s headspace in a time when her world was saturated with echoes of vivid memories, desolate stillness and beautiful decay.
Sarah Richcreek is a Delaware county native now living in Indianapolis. She earned a BFA from Ball State University in 2008 with a concentration in metal arts and a minor in ceramics. Sarah is a senior interpreter at Conner Prairie Living History Museum and has been learning and educating there since 2012. A teacher at heart, her teaching experience spans from wheel-thrown pottery, silversmithing, open-fire cooking & baking and most recently yoga. Her objective is to live with intention, unyielded self-acceptance and optimism to contribute to the growth of a community full of light-hearted beings who unabashedly share their passions with the world.
Inamorata & the Floating City will be on display and open to the public in the Judith Barnes Memorial Gallery throughout the month of November.
