Photographs by Brian Fender and paintings by Kathy Bay will go on exhibit Friday, Sept. 7, at M2 Gallery. The gallery, at 11525 Cantrell, will host a reception from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. that evening.
Fender, who is also a writer and filmmaker, has ALS (also known as Lou Gehrig's Disease) and has returned home to Arkansas from New York City to be with family and friends. In doing so, he has also returned to the landscape that inspires his photography. A portion of proceeds from sales will go to benefit ALS research.
Bay, from Central Arkansas and a winner in the 2010 Delta Exhibition at the Arkansas Arts Center, is showing new abstracts that are landscape-based. She was also selected for the "2012 Watercolor USA" exhibition, which closes today in Springfield, Mo.
