Uptown Eyes is honored to partner with Art Ventures in Fayetteville to feature the artwork of local artists Cheryl Kellar and Jay McDonald! Come by the office after-hours for some wine, treats, and meet these amazing artists who keep Fayetteville funky and beautiful with their fantastic works of art!

About the artists:
“Dr. Jay McDonald is an award winning fine art photographer who has a long history as a practitioner, researcher and lecturer on the neurocognitive process of vision. A natural curiosity as well as a scientific awareness of the visual process has been an accelerant to his artistic appreciation of all visual arts. Having been an active photographer through out his lifetime, it was the revolution and rapid evolution of the digital process that re-awakened his creative passion for the visual image.”

“Cheryl Kellar has been a resident of central Arkansas since October 1993, when she moved from Houston, Texas. She currently resides in Sherwood, Arkansas, but will move to Fayetteville when the remodel of her husband’s family home is completed. Kellar began studying art with Jacquelyn Kaucher at the Arkansas Arts Center in 2002. She joined Mid-Southern Watercolorists soon after her art education began and held several administrative positions in the years that followed. Workshop chair afforded her the opportunity to seek out a variety of excellent artists/instructors to study with in the workshop setting; most memorable to her are Anne Abgott, Jane Angelhart, Linda Kemp, Mark Mehaffey, and Judi Coffey. Kellar’s work can be found in numerous private collections and at Art Ventures NWA Gallery.”
