  • The Two-Town Theater auditions for My Three Angels 6:30pm to 8:30pm @ Madjax Maker Force 514 East Jackson Street

    The Two-Town Theater Company has announced auditions for “My Three Angels,” the company’s second production. Auditions are 1-4 p.m. Sunday at the New Castle-Henry County Library, 376 S. 15th St., New Castle. Auditions continue from 6:30-8:30 p.m. Monday and Tuesday at Madjax, 514 E. Jackson St., Muncie. 

    “My Three Angels,” a comedy by Sam and Bella Spewak, is set at Christmastime in French Guiana in 1910. A family who runs a small shop is in dire straits because a mercenary uncle who owns the shop is arriving with intentions to close the business. Three inmates, trustees from Devil’s Island who are repairing the roof, assist the family with a series of unorthodox methods so that eventually, good triumphs over evil, romance flourishes and the shop remains intact.

    The comedy was written in the 1950s and starred Walter Slezak in the role of Joseph, one of the three convicts. The play ran for over a year and a half on Broadway, a very good run for a non-musical. Since then, the play has been a staple for theaters across the country, especially during the holiday season.

    There are roles for seven men and three women. The male roles require actors from their early 20s (one convict, the young lover, and a late arrival) and actors upward in age to include a father, a very difficult uncle and two other convicts. The roles for women are for one young woman in her late teens or early 20s, her mother and a busy shopper who could be any age.

    Performances will be Dec. 7-10 at Madjax in Muncie and Dec. 13 and 15-17 at the New Castle Henry-County Public Library.

    The 2018 Spring Term PlySpace Open Studios invite the public to Madjax for Brink of Summer ArtsWalk in Downtown Muncie! Open Studios offer an opportunity to learn more about our current residents and their personal and collaborative residency projects. Ask questions about their artwork, their creative processes, and upcoming events and activities once they leave PlySpace.

    Spring 2018 Residents: Melissa Joy Livermore, Nick Witten, and Danielle Graves

    Melissa Joy Livermore has recently returned to Indiana from extended visits abroad where she was reminded of the importance of creating space for others to express themselves as she tried to hold conversations in China and France, constructing sentences word by word. During her time at PlySpace she has been researching linguistics and looking for connections between language learning and interpersonal communication. She will share video work that documents a computer's attempt to provide thought for thought translation of lines from the Tower of Babel in google translate.

    Nick Witten and Danielle Joy Graves work collaboratively with themes of character appropriation, branding, and other elements from pop culture and entertainment— arranging, distorting, and perversing these elements to create absurd alternate versions of reality. Their time at PlySpace will result in the exhibition of new work at Kime Contemporary in Indianapolis. Their open studio event will preview the collaborative process for this new body of work.

    PlySpace is a program of the Muncie Arts and Culture Council in partnership with the City of Muncie, Ball State University School of Art, and Sustainable Muncie Corporation. PlySpace is generously supported by the National Endowment for the Arts.

    PlySpace will hold an Open Studio on the second floor of Madjax on the first Thursday in March, from 5-8 PM. All four of the Spring term residents will offer glimpses into their creative practice and will be available to answer questions about their upcoming projects.

    Kevin Titzer
    Kevin Titzer was born and raised in Evansville, Indiana in the United States, although he has been based in the Saguenay region of Quebec for the last nine years. His sculptures are predominantly created from found and scavenged materials. His site-specific installation work is often crafted from materials gathered at the location of construction and formed into improvised house structures. These structures are highly informed by the communities they are created in. Titzer has been exhibiting professionally in art galleries for twenty years and his work has been shown in Canada, Mexico, Japan, UK, and across the United States.  

    Siena Hancock
    Siena Hancock is an interdisciplinary artist who makes sculpture, interactive installation and artist books/zines. A Boston native, Hancock graduated Massachusetts College of Art with her BFA in 2016. She has recently completed an installation at the Dirt Palace in Providence, RI and a residency at Main St Arts in Upstate, New York. Research plays an important role in Hancock’s practice, utilizing an ethnographic approach she records interviews with women as part of ongoing project Feminist Utopias. Her current work deals with cyberfeminism, alternative realities, mythology, and how technology affects social customs. 

    Matt Litwin & Victoria Eidelsztein (FaceMePor Favor)
    After graduating from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago seven years ago, Matt Litwin started his own business, Limpio Designs. The name Limpio, which means clean in Spanish, was created to help ‘clean’ oppressive environments in Chicago with positive and colorful artwork. Through Limpio, Litwin had the opportunity to work as a traveling muralist and street artist. Within the medium of murals, he painted artwork that celebrates natural ecosystems and endangered animals. These murals often juxtapose the monotone grey walls of the city with the bold and pastel colors that he paints using aerosols and latex paints. Through his travels, Litwin has inspiration from people in Argentina, Brazil, Uruguay, Thailand, Canada, and the United States. 

    Victoria Eidelsztein (Argentina) has a degree in Visual Arts with an orientation in print making. Since 2008 she has exhibited her work in different collective and individual exhibitions: Palais de Glace Museum, La Sin Futuro, El Ojo Errante Gallery, Panal 361 Artist Residency, Freudian School of Buenos Aires, among others. After graduating in 2013, she has been teaching art in different spaces in Buenos Aires: Flexible Lab, Pinta Conmigo and also at Martín Buber and September elementary schools. Her work has progressed through various media: printmaking, drawing, digital art and painting. For the last couple of years Victoria focused her work on portraits. In January and February 2019, Victoria will be a resident artist at Women's Studio Workshop in Rosendale, New York.
