M2 Gallery, located for 12 years in the Pleasant Ridge Shopping Center, has made the move to 1300 Main St. in the hopping SoMa neighborhood and will hold its Grand (Re)opening from 5-8 p.m. Nov. 30. The opening will be a blast, as artist Jay Sage (whose work appears at right) will apply gunpowder to a painting and ignite it.

The gallery is located on the bottom floor of the building in a large space previously owned by the Oxford American magazine and once occupied by Juanita's restaurant. The opening exhibition will  feature works by Ryder Richards, Jeaneen Barnhart, Ladawna Whiteside, Bryan Frazier, Robin Tucker, John Allison, Neal Harrington, Warren Criswell, Steve Adair, Lisa Krannichfeld, Catherine Nugent, Cathy Burns, Sherrie Shepherd and others.

The space will also feature an area dedicated to works on paper, both in flat files and bins; the photography studio of Ashley Murphy; and custom framing. The gallery will also be available for rent for special events.

Besides the fireworks, the opening will have food, drinks and music. Regular hours will be 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday, but the gallery will have extended hours during the holidays. Mac Murphy is gallery director.
