Wandering the Heartland: Photography by Michael Leonard

The Batesville Area Arts Council is pleased to present Wandering the Heartland: Photography by Michael Leonard. The exhibition will be on display at the BAAC Gallery on Main, 226 E Main St, from August 23 – October 1, 2016.

Originally from Missouri, Michael has lived in Fort Smith since retiring from the U.S. Navy in 1994. “I’ve learned to see the world around me in a completely different way since becoming a photographer. Light becomes paint on a canvas and commonly found objects transform into graphic sculpture,” says Leonard on his process.

The gallery reception for this exhibition will be held on Friday, September 9, from 5 p.m. – 7 p.m., with a brief artist talk at 6 p.m. The reception is free and open to the public. This exhibition is sponsored by Wood Family Dealerships. Gallery hours are Tuesday – Friday 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. and Saturday 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.
