M2 Gallery Grand Opening

M2 Gallery Grand Opening

We have been remiss in posting the last three to four weeks because of the immense flow of art entrees we have had to process for the Arkansas Governor’s Mansion Art Competition. With that said, thank goodness the dead line for entries was Friday June 1st so now we can concentrate on

M2 Gallery had their Grand Opening featuring two distinguished Arkansas Artists; V.L. Cox and Jason Gammell. John and Kim Magee, and Mac and Ashley Murphy, the owners of M2 Gallery in the new Pleasant Ridge Town Center on Cantrell in Little Rock, were present and I spoke with them about the interesting artists and the exquisite art on display. M2 is a prestigious gallery with some great artists from our state and around the world. They had live music, wine, beer and some awesome appetizers, so all who attended had a wonderful time.

I got to speak with Jason Gammell about his intriguing style and the way he manipulates his acrylic medium to produce his exceptional abstract renditions of time, space and dimension that seem to draw you into his creation.

I also had the pleasure of visiting with the delightfully perky V.L. Cox who is always a pleasure to talk with. She is one of the most assiduously creative artists that I know, whose genius blend of acrylic, mixed media and excitingly unusual objects will capture you gaze for hours. Each of her pieces is like a marvelous novel that you just can not put down, one that captures your imagination as you try to visualize her inner most emotions.

After our immensely enjoyable tour of the M2 Gallery we walked next door to one of Little Rocks newest sensational restaurants called Crew for an exquisite dinner. I had the delectable grilled yellow fin tuna which was presented in an art like form. The food and the wine were both excellent and the service was outstanding bringing our evening of art, music and dining to a delightful end. I hope to see you next Friday at the 2nd Friday Art Walk in beautiful downtown Little Rock.
