M2 Gallery
in the Pleasant Ridge Town Centre will open a mother-daughter show on Friday: Anita Davis, who everyone knows as the Fairy Godmother of SoMa, where her Esse Museum and the Bernice Garden are located, and her daughter, Betsy Davis, are the featured artists. Anita Davis does found-object sculpture; Betsy Davis will show works on paper in a series that honors Ghana artist El Anatsui, the subject of this fascinating New York Times review. The pairing of Anita's found-art objects with her daughter's homage is fitting; El Anatsui also fabricates art from found objects, chosen for their meaning. 

There will be a reception from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Friday; the show will be up through December.
