A Never-Ending Quest Featuring the Art of Shannon Mehaffey

Join Cornerstone Center for the Arts on Thursday, March 5 for the opening reception of A Never-Ending Quest featuring the art of Shannon Mehaffey. 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 March’s First Thursday events.

This collection of new mixed-media artworks by artist Shannon Mehaffey is a culmination of new processes and themes the artist has discovered through experimentation, meditation, and dedication to the study of art. Inspired by the fantastical landscapes, items, and stories found within the digital realm of video game franchises such as “Skyrim,” “Death Stranding,” and “Fallout.”  The artist has dedicated her artistic practice to exploring new art mediums and processes. Born out of the artist's long lost love of analog darkroom photography, this body of work is about learning to control the alchemy of the papers and inks using solvents, moving ink around the page in a totally uncontrolled manner, and finding order within the chaos.

Shannon Mehaffey is a Visual Artist living in Muncie, Indiana. She earned her BFA in Photography in Fine Arts at Ball State University in 2010, she currently teaches Watercolors, Drawing, Landscape Painting, and Mixed Media at Cornerstone Center for the Arts. In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her partner, her two dogs, binging Netflix, and playing video games.

A Never-Ending Quest will be on display and open to the public in the Judith Barnes Memorial Gallery throughout the month of March.

For more information about the exhibition call Cornerstone’s Department of Education & Communication at 765-281- 9503, ext. 123 or visit cornerstonearts.org.
