West Little Rockers don't have to go as far east as Interstate 430 to find art for their spacious homes. They hit up M2 Gallery, in the Pleasant Ridge Shopping Center, for contemporary painting and sculpture from Little Rock and the region. The work here is all over the place: large abstract paintings, Lauren Embree jewelry, late folk artist Tim West drawings, etc. There's sometimes furniture here too, by hugely talented Little Rock woodworker Keith Newton, and that alone would be a reason to go.
