Brian Gordy's work selected for national exhibition

MUNCIE – Brian Gordy, watercolor artist and local businessman, has been accepted into the 147th Annual International Exhibition of the American Watercolor Society. His entry, “Spotted Turtle Composition,” will hang at the Salmagundi Club, 47 Fifth Ave., New York City, from April 1-20.

The American Watercolor Society Annual exhibition is “considered by many to be the most prestigious and competitive Watercolor Exhibition in the country,” according to the acceptance notice. Notable members of AWS include Gordy’s personal hero, Winslow Homer, along with Louis Comfort Tiffany, Edward Hopper, William Merrit Chase, Thomas Eakins, Childe Hassam and others.

This is the first time for Gordy to be invited to show in this competition. “It is a great honor to be included in such a prestigious and historically important exhibition. All of my watercolor heroes came through there,” Gordy said in a press release.

A graduate of the Ball State University Department of Art, Gordy and his wife, Genny – also a BSU art graduate – maintain an art gallery and frame shop in downtown Muncie, representing two dozen area artists, including Gordy. A website of his works may be found at http://www.turtlepaintings.com. For more information, visit http://www.gordyframing.com, or call the gallery at 284-8422.
